Laundry Hack

Laundry Hack -

It is washing day.  Everything else happens at once and I don't have time to wait for the water to fill up before I put the soap in and I do not want to put the soap in first, so I  came up with this.  I do not use the softner dispenser so I removed it and just turn on the washer add the clothes and put the cup and all on top of the aggitator and done.  I have been doing this ever since for over a year with no problems.

I am going to coin a new word "Screll or Screlling is what a baby or toddler does during periods of sleep regression.  They scream and yell at you at the same time."

Ever have one of those DOH moments as a parent?

Ever have one of those DOH moments as a parent? That was me tonight. Our 11 1/2 month old daughter has been teething and trying her best to sleep in her crib in her room and mommy (me) has been trying to help. I had been leaving her bedroom door cracked. WRONG!!! (Thank you mom for the heads up!) I may have to install a webcam with night vision though not being able to go and physically see her was driving me nuts. Then since I closed her door I wanted to provide her some comfort in the form of a little light.... Wrong again! DOH! I realized in my sleepless delirium that she was waking up and fuss crying every 30 minutes or so. Recalling when she slept in our room she slept better sooner and longer when I would have all the lights off and the tv off, I figured I'd go turn off the "comfort" light I provided. NO wait if I enter and my presence is observed or detected that is another scream and yell at mommy and then a crying fit for then next hour. hmmm... Then it hit me, turn off the power to just her room. WOW !!! talk about instant gratification, she stopped mid fuss and was back to snoring in less than a minute. Off to bed for me now.

Sugar and spice and everything nice,
