Making Oatmeal. 5 year old style.
I was just sitting here catching up on my email, and I started to smell a horrible burning smell! Since I wasn't cooking anything and the boys were "coloring" it took me a second to register that it was coming from the microwave and Isaac was standing on the oven watching it. I said "Isaac what in the world are you doing? You can't just turn on the microwave while it's empty!" and he informed me that it wasn't empty. He was making oatmeal. mind you he'd just finished breakfast an hour ago. when I looked in the microwave I found a bowl with oatmeal in it. The only problem is that there was no water......and that he'd set it for 7 minutes! Luckily I stopped it while there was still 5 left, but burning peach oatmeal smells horrible! Isaac keeps me on my toes!
