* Today I found that the hand dryers in fast food bathrooms will dry Lauren’s pants after pushing the big silver button only four times. So if your baby’s diaper explodes with yuckiness and you always forget to bring a change of clothes but do remember to keep a small bottle of baby soap in your bag – you are in luck. The bathroom can be turned into a mini-washroom in no time. Have an older sibling stand next to the fold down changing table containing your pants-less baby, order them to hang on to the baby for dear life and start scrubbing. The smell won’t quite disappear and will make you feel like the worst mom in the world for the rest of your marathon shopping trip, but at least the baby will have dry pants.
* Today I also found that while Walmart sells ink cartridge refill kits, they do not come with instructions that tell you this ink will stain your fingers forever. The instructions also don’t say that the “lid removal tool” is really just a medieval torture device and it hurts really badly when a chunk of your palm gets gouged out.
* And I also found the perfect replacement vanity top today. Perfect in every way. Price. Size. Color. Perfect. Not perfect? Opening the package all the way when I got home and realizing the lovely vanity top has a huge crack in it. I’m sure it wouldn’t be a big deal to others, but our bathroom sink has been broken for longer than I care to admit. It was quite deflating to see that crack. I know I’ll go back, get another and everything will be fine. But blah. I didn’t want to see a crack in my new vanity.
Its been quite a day.
