Lessons In Great Parenting #237 and #238
Don't make your children help you carry the cakes for the summer fair to school and then tell your 2 year old she isn't allowed to eat one despite the fact she has it right under her nose. You will arrive at school with two children sobbing/screaming. Other parents will look at you accusingly. They won't know that you have not allowed them buns for breakfast, they will just think you are a bad parent. This is because you not only have two crying children, but you are also late and sporting wet hair. You look a shambles and so people will think you most probably are a shambles. And all because you wanted to bring buns in for the school fair. It's just not worth it.
Don't then try and pass off said buns as your own by buying plain fairy cakes from Tesco and just icing them yourself, sprinkling them with silver balls. A good 'friend' will out you on Facebook, thereby making you look very lame. Either just buy nice cakes from Waitrose still in their wrappers that people will actually want to buy or get up off your lazy bum and make them from fresh. There is no such thing as half measures when it comes to bun making for the summer fair. Deal with it.
