Some things about baking

1. When I say "Max, I will feed you as soon as I'm done baking," he only hears as far as "Max, I will feed you."

2. Most commonly-used sentence when the oven door is open: "You really need to be ELSEWHERE right now." This sentence is good on the cat who insists on being underfoot because he distinctly heard you say you would feed him, the cat who wants to walk into the oven, and the kid who's running/skidding across the kitchen to grab some Halloween candy.

3. I dance. Well. Fairly constantly. But especially when baking.

*chuckle* Add the refrigerator door to that list and I SO understand. Also add 6 more cats...

Oh, we have three cats, but the third lacks the trust of the hungry cat and the stupidity of the overly-curious cat.

I don't remember either of those two being mentioned by Andrew Lloyd Weber.

Well, we actually have 8, but two of them are chicken-shit and stay pretty much upstairs in da Kidling's room.

I open a single can of wet cat food every morning while I'm getting hubby's coffee, and distribute it amongst 6 saucers for noisy, demanding fur babies. Stupid Nell is the most demanding and tried to steal everyone else's, pretty Princess gets hers on the kitchen counter, both black cats, the old lady and her 'baby' gets theirs on the table, Bitchy Boy comes inside and chases Delicate Flower away from hers and then gets his.

Then I try not to step on any tails while I'm carrying out the coffee cup.

But the question is, WHAT are you baking?

Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.

I really believe the best education comes from direct experience. Letting a kid get a (small!) burn, skinned knees, and the odd scratch and bump is A Good And Harmless Thing. Kids need to know that mommy and daddy, despite all their love for them, will not be there all the time to protect and save.

Similarly, if the cat wants to explore the innards of a hot oven, or needs a reminder of what a shod foot feels like from above, then the cat is very obviously asking for a quick object lesson, and should be obliged in kind.
Baste as needed, throw in some basil, and things should work out fine.

1. is what our pets hear. And they will gladly tell anyone within earshot that they are "HUNGRY! STARVING! HAVEN'T EATEN IN FOREVERS!"

2. is fast becoming a staple in our house, as well, only in terms of the dog and the boy.

3. I used to sing while cooking, but more often while slicing deli meat at Foodmaster.
