Today my in-laws came for supper and so I made Chocolate Pudding Cake (yes, it’s delicious!) and of course, there were some “helpers” involved!

G and L: Can we eat some (of the batter)?

Me: No, it’s not ready yet.

G and L: Why not?

M: Boys, you have to wait, it’s only the prototype!

(I almost spewed into the batter at that point!)

A little later…

M: Mama, what are you doing?

Me: Pouring the batter into the baking dish.

M (hands cupping her mouth): Watch out! Fire in the hole!

…Tomorrow morning, we’re watching something different – no more Alvin and the Chipmunks!
