Help Wanted

Did you know that The Golden Gate Bridge is ALWAYS being repainted? It's so grand in scale, crews get to one end and it's already time to begin painting again. Same goes for the mound of baby bottles in my sink. daily. I begin each day with such hope...promise...a bevy of sparkling bottles with which I can provide nourishment to my little man. Then, as the day goes by, the sink begins to fill up. Dirty bottles stacked atop one another in some twisted "King O' the Mountain" match up.

So, I devised an ad. It reads:



Think it'll work?

It's enough to drive you to use just one bottle and rinse it out with super hot water between feedings. Not that I EVER resorted to such a thing! (::blushing crimson::)

Hmmmmmm.... :-)

And, to make matters worse, we use Dr. Brown's "189-piece bottle set." The only thing missing is the valium. for me.

well, that and someone to WASH those bottles, of course.

OK, before anyone asks, I was kidding about the 189 piece set. It just feels like each BOTTLE involves 189 pieces. :-)

i can't believe someone would actually just rinse a bottle with really hot water and then re-use it. (cough, cough) hehe i used to hand wash them every day. now...the dishwasher runs every single night, even if there's no other dishes.

I need an ad like that for my laundry. I often wonder about the number of absolutely futile tasks we do every day that must be done again and again and again the next day...Like Mr. Incredible: "Why can't the world just stay saved?!!"

But don't you just love Dr. Brown's bottles? Best invention ever, really. And I do have a thing for those tiny pipe cleaner bottle brushes...

Chocolate chip cookies you say?

When can I start?

Maybe this is how Famous Amos cookies got started! There they were, back in the day, awash in a see of something (let's remember this was before disposable diapers and a mountain of those makes those bottles look like a sweet gig!) and ran a help wanted ad with cookies as pay.

Could there be Famous Kate cookies in your future?

Also, you've got me thinking now, wouldn't paying someone in chocolate chip cookies lead to them eventually being unable to function in the position? And then wouldn't you have to pay workman's comp or disability in cookies which is just piling on?

You know why I have the time and energy to ponder these things? I'm childless. I should probably come babysit and get myself under control. :-)

OK--So, your chocolate chip cookies entered my head yesterday morning with your blog entry...and lingered there all day. Gnawing gnawing til finally at 9 pm and WAY against my better judgment, I broke down to bake a batch!! Chocolate cookies...only the from scratch homemade kind...are my NEMESIS! 12 hours post Katie's blog and I could take it no longer! My gnawing turned to GNAWING and noshing and eating way too many chocolate chip cookies! Wish we could've had them TOGETHER!!!

Yeah, I was also going to add that the, um, bad mommies just wash the bottles with hot water and set it by the sink and reuse the same one all day. Ahem.

You do put all the parts in the dishwasher, tho, right? Dr Brown can handle it. I just put the long funnel thingy over a spoke on the top rack and put the top stopper thingy in with the nipples.
