Baking with Pete

Pete and I have been baking a cake and brownies. That is, I've been preparing the ingredients with Pete in a carrier in front of me, while Pete excitedly reaches for everything with his hands and feet. My reach is longer than his (even spotting him the advantage of being in front of me), but the difference is small enough that whenever I relax my vigilance for a second, he's sure to catch the lip of a bowl with a finger or toe. It was not his fault, however, that in the course of my licking a spatula, he got a medium-sized spot of chocolate batter on his head.
