14 Tweets That Show Cooking or Baking With Kids Is a Recipe for Disaster

Every so often we all do it. Go through an ambitious Pinterest phase where we feel like doing all the things with our kids such as crafting, adventuring, and spending time doing things in the kitchen.

What they don’t tell you on Pinterest is that cooking or baking with your kids is basically a recipe for frustration and rage… served with a side of no-good, nasty, gross food.

Baking with kids is like your worst nightmare covered in sugar. There’s flour on the walls, butter on ceiling, and chances are you may have had the urge to get into the rum. Cooking with kids is a very similar outcome, the only difference being that, oh shit- dinner is ruined!

The thing is, we’ll continue to do this shit because the mom guilt struggle is real, and we’re all suckers for the idea of having a picture-perfect family day with our kids. Somehow it seems that if we could only get together in our color-coordinated matching jammies and blast out some calzones or Rice Krispie treats, that maybe we won’t feel like such a failure, or notice that the world is on fire.

One can hope, right?!
