I must be mad!!
I have always had the boys in the kitchen with me and after years of frustration am finally at the point where their "help" actually is!!
One thing I haven't really got them doing properly is cleaning up though. I was thinking about this over the holidays and realised I was crazy to not get them doing it a) because it's another way they can help me and b) because it's such an important skill to learn.
My husband is a rubbish cleaner and in the kitchen (and our en suite - shhhh!!) I always come along behind him and finish it off "properly". So why am I not educating the boys "properly" so they can be a real help? Hmmm, from now on I will ...
Do you clean up after the kids if they cook?
