Crazy Mom Post for Just a Touch of Crazy

What do you LET your kids do so you can accomplish something else in your house?

Here's one thing I let my child play with so I could bake without messing up. The last time I let her help me, the cookies didn't quite turn out right - miscounted something. So I give her a bowl filled with some flour (flour is pretty cheap right?) and let her mix herself. Unfortunately it turned into a huge mess --- good thing for vacuums!

 Of course I couldn't yell at her; I took pictures! Memory keeping shouldn't just show "perfect" lives.

Needless to say, in the future, I gave her a lot less flour to play around with, like a couple spoonfuls instead of a couple cups.

Most of the time I help my kids bake, but with things with a lot less ingredients (especially for children who really like to do things their own way like my daughter). A favorite in our house to bake together is cheesecake or banana bread.
