Silly Sayings, and Easy Tricks to Clean the Kitchen
We had a late night last night after watching Fiddler. I didn't get in the shower after midnight, and by the time I was dressed and had my hair partially dried and was ready to head to bed, the baby was crying - around 1 am. I got him a bottle, handed it to him in the dark, hoping he would drink it and go back to sleep. No dice. So I went in and got him and when I had him in the light, this is what I found. He was itching like crazy and had scratched to the point of bleeding a lot. I changed him, gave him some benadryl, and rocked him to sleep. Then he spent the rest of the night in a playpen in our room.
Another thing I figured out - quite by accident - which is truly one of those things you say "duh" to - is that the first step in dinner prep should be to fill the sink with soapy water. I find I try to avoid using things like the food processor because I dread having to clean them. Today I just happened to be washing dishes when I used the food processor and I was able to quickly rinse everything and set it on a towel to dry. Super fast cleanup.
Okay, so I know those are probably two tips that everyone on earth already knew, but they were new to me, so I'm celebrating them ;)
