K made yeasted bread rolls with the children on Sunday afternoon while I went shopping with a friend.
When I came home, The Rooster explained the finer points of bread making.
"Do you know what the yeast are doing in the dough, Mommy?"
"No Rooster. What are they doing?" I asked.
"They are eating the sugar!" She told me.
"Oh, really? I didn't know that," I said.
"And do you know how the yeast make the dough rise?" she asked.
"No," I said, "I don't. How do they do it?"
"By farting! They eat the sugar and then they FART and the dough rises."
Confused, I turned to look at K.
"Something like that," he said.
"And you know what else, Mama?" Rooster said hopping from foot to foot with excitement.
"What? What else, Roo?"
"When we put the rolls in the oven, they're all going to die. The YEAST are ALL going to DIE!"
I can't decide if I should have stayed home.
