“As soon as Mommy finishes making a pee-pee we will make ham and eggs, okay?” I told my adorable two-year-old daughter.
Wrongly assuming I could make a fast tinkle and start breakfast in under a minute, I heard the sound that made me dash for the kitchen. To most people the sound of the microwave turning on doesn’t strike the fear of God in them, but all I could think of was, “Oh, God. The house is going to burn down!”
The night before, the kids and I made Christmas sugar cookies decked out with frosting and sprinkles. I gently wrapped the cookies in foil and stored them in the microwave to keep them from drying out while the frosting settled onto the cookies.
By the time I reached the microwave, the burning was well under way. My innocent looking two-year-old stood by the microwave proudly proclaiming she started breakfast as I was feverishly grabbing the burning foil, frosting and cookies out of the microwave. Luckily, she only managed to leave a few frosting burn marks on the brand-new microwave and we didn’t burn down the house. I don’t think our landlord would have appreciated that very much.
I guess I better start a potty schedule for me.
Does anyone know how to take off burn marks or cover them up?
