* just enough rules

* a heaping bowl of parental kindness

Turn on the oven. Put the setting on "good life."

Directions:

If you happen to end up covered in learning experiences, laugh as much as you want, and feel free to experiment! Once you know what causes spills and messes, and how to properly clean them up, you won't let those little accidents upset you the next time you bake.
