…wash out the baby bottles in the evening. Nothing worse than waking up and realizing that you have to clean a bottle out before you can feed the kid. Not that Budsie cares. He’s not fussy in the morning (really, he’s not fussy at all) and is quite happy to jump or roll around on the floor while I fumble with dishsoap and rubber gloves. But for my own sanity, these should be done the night before because dishes before coffee is just a bad idea. And yes, I realize that if I was still breastfeeding, I wouldn’t have these difficulties. I would however have massive boob wounds from the now six chompers residing in my boy’s mouth. I’m confident I made the right decision here.
So I’ve been out of commission for the last couple of days because my step dad, Frenchie, was in town for a quick visit. Lovely to have him here – he babysat Budsie last night, allowing me to have a couple of pints with the lovely LG. He also made us some assorted pies and soup. The fridge and freezer are now stocked! Woot. Mum and Frenchie are moving out to O-town in the next few months and while I’m slightly weirded out by the thought of living near parents again (first time since I left home back in 1998), I’m more than a little excited about the prospect of regular pie. Nom!
Anyway, so yes out of commission. And suddenly falling behind on everything – writing projects and resolutions and what have you. So today is Catch Up Wednesday. I have a guest post to finish off for KiC and another for BOFS. I have some work to do on another project – more on this soon. I have laundry to do and a kitchen to clean. And, in addition to the bottle resolution, I will try for two more and write about my successes/failures tonight. One is to learn how to work our electric fireplace. The other is to superglue our pepper grinder back together. Quite the day! More coffee needed.
