The Good with the Bad

Sometimes I feel like a good mom. Today, Annika had two friends over to play, a sure recipe for disaster. I don't know what it is about girls, but more than two spells trouble. So I decided that one recipe should be replaced by another, one for chocolate cake. I forced the girls into the kitchen, and set them to work. By the end of an hour, they had made a great chocolate cake (with a bit of help from me). And nobody got their feelings hurt, nobody had to show loyalty for their "best" friend, nobody felt left out - a good result. Yummy, too.

But with the girls in the kitchen, with chocolate, no less, I had to keep the boys away and calm. So.... the electronic babysitter kicked into action with Donald Duck videos. Not great. Oh well, next time it will be Benjamin's turn to bake.
