Leaky Tide

April 26th 2010 by Jen in Randomness 0

Do not buy liquid detergent whose packaging is smashed/smooshed on the bottom and do not treat liquid detergent as if it were indestructible by banging it around during the transition from shelf to cart, cart to car, and car to laundry room floor (who am I kidding? It sat by the front door for at [...]

I hate diaper rash

April 22nd 2010 by Jen in Randomness 1

Dinah has it. Again. And it’s so bad that she starts crying the moment we mention changing her. When we go anywhere close to the changing table, she starts clinging to us and screaming.
