Things that don't seem to happen when Mommy watches the kids

I let Matthew make his own oatmeal this morning. He thinks he can do it all by himself. In practice this has meant "Daddy does almost everything," but Matthew insisted on another chance. I gave in.

He came pretty close, I'll give him that. Bowl? Check. Oats? Check. Microwave? Check. No spoon in the bowl while microwaving? Check check check.


What's that burning smell?

So if you were curious, Matthew has saved you the trouble of checking for yourself: microwaving oats with no milk or water will burn the oats and it will smell nasty -- like burned popcorn, only it doesn't dissipate as quickly. It's four hours later and still stinky in the whole upstairs.
