Today I made the mistake of letting my six-year-old son have free reign of the Redi Whip can. I had put out a piece of pumpkin pie.
"Can I put on the whipped cream?"
"Okay," I said without giving it much thought.
In a matter of seconds, he had whipped cream piled on the pie, whipped cream in his milk, whipped cream on his plate, whipped cream on the table, and whipped cream all over his face.
"What are you doing?" I bellowed.
He grinned. "More whipped cream?"
