Preheat oven; get out bowl, spoons and ingredients. Grease pan, crack nuts. Remove 18 toy blocks and 1 toy fire truck from kitchen table. Measure 2 cups flour; remove son/daughter's hand from flour; wash flour off him/her. Measure 1 more cup of flour to replace flour on floor. Put flour, baking powder and salt in sifter. Get dust pan and brush up pieces of bowl which child knocked on the floor. Get another bowl. Answer the doorbell. Return to kitchen. Remove child's hands from bowl. Wash child. Get out egg. Answer telephone. Return. Take out greased pan. Remove 1 inch of salt from pan. Look for child. Get another pan and grease it. Answer telephone. Return to kitchen and find child; remove his/her hands from bowl; wash shortening, etc., off him/her. Take up greased pan and find 1 inch layer of nutshells in it. Head for child, who flees, knocking bowl off table. Wash kitchen floor. Wash off table. Wash down walls. Wash dishes. Turn off oven. Call the baker. Lie down!!!

LOL...I am telling you, only someone who has had a small child will see the truth in that one. Now days I tell her to go watch tv and I will call her when it's time to lick the bowl..LOL

I can remember helping my mother bake when I was a small child. When we were done, I'd get to lick the bowl, FUN!!!!! :girly1: :girly2:

Well, I have no children, but that doesn't make it any easier for me!
Especially since my cat loves the dishwasher. He loves crawling in, and if you push the rack over him he just flattens himself under it. Then he's reeeally hard to get out.

And even without kids, my counters are always loaded with crap, so I too have to search for preparation space!

Some additonal kitchen tips, from my own experiences:

1. Check lid of bottle before shaking. Friday I shhok a bottle of marinade after removing the plastic seal. One would think the lid would already be on tightly seeing that I had never opened it. Wrong. Thus I had teriyaki marinade (much thicker than reg teriyaki) all over my kitchen, floor to ceiling, on the groceries I hadn't finished putting away, and in some partially opened drawers. Nice.

2. Put lid on blender. Much like previous story, only with strawberries, an open design house done in cream, and vaulted ceilings.

3. Cucumbers and zucchinis look very similar when one is in a hurry. Steamed cucumbers are yucky.

lol My favorite part was being able to lick the rest out of the bowl and off the spoon.

:LOL: ahhh, I rememebr those days MaryAnne!

I love the add-ons Aliecat posted...been there!
My latest was when I went to add lemon pepper to some marinading chicken breasts, and the top popped off, not my worst mis-hap, but still a messy one.
