Sometimes I just come up with stuff that I want to share but really, is everything worth its own post?
You know your toddler is having a good summer when the bottoms of her flip flops are cleaner than the tops.
A good mantra to practice: “I am the parent, I am the parent, I am the parent”
Perfect new baby gift: a membership to a health club or athletic center that provides free childcare. Its the only time mom will get to shower privately. Sometimes I go just to shower and have a protein shake. Is it wrong?
Household and hygiene tip: While the dishwasher is running the rinse or dry cycle, carefully open and lean down to get a clean fork. I like to call it the dishwasher facial.
Parenting tip: right after you’ve cut your hand on a can lid trying to force it off the can because the can opener is a piece of junk, is NOT the time to explain to your children how to dial 911 on the cell phone in case mommy needs help and can’t use the phone. However, explaining to the kids that its important to quickly eat their breakfast in case mommy has to go to the doctor does eliminate some malingering in the morning.
Household tip: if your can opener does not make a clean cut around the ENTIRE top and the lid cannot be removed, do not try to force it with your fingers. Accept that you have lost and move on. Serve something else.
