Embrace the Mess     Follow us on Instagram @baking_with_kids

“Your kids won’t remember the messy house but they’ll remember the fun times”  I’ve seen this banded about in memes for some time. I liked and belived it until today when my nearly 3 year old said “mammy this house is full of lots of mess!” Hmmm I thought? It’s not me who smeared dairylea triangle over the staircase? 

 Since having baby number 2 I found a new way of dealing with the increase mess: Lowering expectations. My expectations of my own housework are so low, that this pom-bear/toddler tread stand off didn’t even fill me with dread…20170731_111135.jpg

So one of the main reasons people avoid baking with kids is the mess. It is inevitable but so worth the enjoyment your kids will get from messing about in the kitchen with you. Embrace the mess and enjoy the chaos that is baking with kids 😊
