I have a lacrosse board meeting today, and difficult child 1's coach has decided to host a BBQ for the board members & their spouses as a thankyou for our efforts over the past two years in getting this new program off the ground. We were not asked to bring anything, but I know that a couple people are bringing some side dishes, so I decided to bake brownies this morning to take to the bbq. Well, the oven timer went off while I was outside and dear, sweet difficult child 2 came to the rescue and turned off the timer and (this time) actually took the pan out, set it on the stovetop and turned OFF the oven! Great job, right? Mostly. He also decided to cut the brownies while they were still gooey hot. And in slightly less-than-even pieces. Sigh. I thanked him for being helpful but explained that 1) it's best to wait until they've cooled to cut them, otherwise they tend to fall apart at the edges, and 2) I needed 12 equally-sized pieces, not eight geometrically-challenged pieces.
