Day 282. in which the cake is microwaved.

Lil put a new spin on an old nursery rhyme today. We were sitting on the edge of my bed, dressing Liam, when she launched into song.
patty cake, patty cake, baker's man -
bake me a cake as fast as you can.
pat it!
roll it!
and put it in the microwave!
and oh! yeah! put a 'b' on it!
Our children (and I mean this collectively) are the product of an expedient age. Expediency, however, is not necessarily a good thing. Putting a cake in the microwave may 'bake' it faster, but it's definitely not going to taste very good.

However, I can certainly see why Lil might be in a hurry to get her cake baked...
