My daughter and a friend, 9 years old, volunteered their mothers to bake cupcakes for school.We were upset that they volunteered us without permission so we told them they would have to bake them without our help. BIG MISTAKE! We forgot to tell them that they should only fill cups 2/3 full and my oven was quickly covered in cake batter. Needless to say, I made the cupcakes after cleaning the oven!! She's 31 now and is an excellent bake!

I guess you should have provided a little supervision, if not a lot of help.  Too bad you got so much extra work out of the "lesson".

It is amazing how much we assume our children know and then are surprised when we find out that some of the basics aren't in their vast amount of learned knowledge and we, as parents do have a wonderful chance to teach them about life and the basics of living even if we don't know calculus etc.
