I use Avent bottles for Sugarbaby. After so many uses/washes whatever they begin to leak. You have to finagle that lid on just right or else. This morning I thought she had set a world record in bottle drinking. Turns out she was soaked through with formula. We did this three times, along with three changes of clothes, and three warm washcloth baths. Makers of Avent, what's up? Can you fix this problem, or at least send me free bottles, or possibly new clothes, a maid would also suffice.
Yesterday the Monster brings home a few notes from Kindergarten. A bunch of yada yada about Christmas festivities, school closings and other stuff they already sent out in the newsletter and in two notes home last month. Included in this was a note from his teacher about the Kindergarten Christmas party and that we should send a wrapped gift and contribute with some type of refreshment. Cool. I totally love to bake, decorate, and just generally put chocolate, sugar, and flour together into some concoction that I can put in
my the children's tummies. Unfortunately according to the school, Arkansas law prohibits the bringing of homemade food items to a public school. I Googled this law, couldn't find it. Maybe my Google skills aren't savvy enough. Anyways, that means I am supposed to buy something instead of using what I already have in my kitchen, baking it in my oven Granny's oven, and wowing the under 6 set with my mad Martha Stewart skills. I'm getting a little Grinchy here.
To top it off, and I won't name names, someone never can seem to refill the ice trays. Same goes for rolls of toilet paper. I know, I know. I'm used to it by now, but when I go to have my nightly cocktail after the kiddos are bedded down, I get livid when there is no ice to be had. Isn't this what they invented automatic ice makers for? Husbands who pretend the ice trays weren't empty when they shoved them back in the fridge?
