Babysitter fail

Me: Hey kids! Let's make a cake!

Adorable moppet that I'm babysitting: Hooray! Can I help?

Me: Actually, it will go a lot faster if I do it myself.

Because the whole point of baking a cake with kids is to get it over with as soon as possible so that you're that much closer to cramming that sweet, sweet cake into your mouth.

Also, when I opened the box, there was a dead bug in the cake mix.

Best. Babysitter. Ever.

Don't use 'fail' as a noun, that makes me sad :(

If you ever say 'FTW' I won't help you move.

I read somewhere that vegans get their vitamin b12 from the bugs in grain products

EEEEWWWWWW!

I had that same problem a while ago. It's just wrong. Bugs should not be allowed to be inside things that we eat.
They should be outside, eating other bugs.

yeah, I asked Amelia if she helped make the cake... she replied, "No, because that wouldn't be fair to the other kids". LOL.

Nicely done, babysitter. Did you make the cake anyway?

No... I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked!

The whole point of baking a cake with kids is that they get to help. And then the kitchen is a total mess so while the cake is baking you all get to play clean-up.

Your post made me laugh so hard as I bake with my kids the very same way, I do most of it.

I want to let them do it and have fun with it but then it gets all messy and I am the one who cleans it up. Plus yes, anything I do just happens faster. Although they get to lick the spoons, so when I hog all the baking I just give them two spoons each to lick.
