So he sat there while I snapped pictures.
Do you like my huge sunglasses to cover the fact I have no makeup on? Yeah, it was one of "those" days. Not everyone can be classy at the park, impossibly beautiful park Mom. I was in yoga pants too, lady. Try and look a little less stunning and perfect, thanks.
This morning found the baby with a leaky diaper. Not the most welcome of surprises in the am, but it did force me to strip his bed and put it to wash. I am finding with a boy, that even though it's incredibly difficult to change crib bedding, boys make an awful mess in there somehow. Putting it off too long is probably ill-advised. Man, those sheets were filthy- and I had no idea. The crib tent tends to obscure the light in there. Seems like I should not have to bend myself in half, impaled by the side rails, rending my kidney in two, just to wash some sheets. Improvement needed, crib makers of the world; I'm putting you on notice.
During the breakfast routine (today: oatmeal. tomorrow: pancakes, day after: cereal, repeat) I happen to come upon the baking soda box and it's "replace by" date of Aug 2011. This was interesting as I usually never write down the date on the box and opt instead to wing it. I thought about changing the box out, except that I realized Mr. Arm & Hammer recommend replacement every 30 days. This seems suspicious to me. Even though, yes, I have had the same box of baking soda in there since July. I've decided that Big Baking Soda (yes, I said Big Baking Soda) is just pulling my chain on this one, and I will be replacing that little orange box in a year. Yes, I've unilaterally decided that one year is more of an accurate time-frame for a box of baking powder to do its job; desmellifying my fridge. It's been (let me count...) 6 mos, and my fridge doth not reek!
I use the same approach to our refrigerator's water filter. It recommends every 6 mos I replace the mail-order-only, 40 whopping dollar filter. I do so every 2 years. Take that, General Electric.
