Happy Halloween

The jerk

Yup, that's me! Today for lunch I gave Bear some steamed carrots. Last week he loved the "tarrots" and couldn't get enough. Not this week. He wouldn't touch them. He one by one, stabbed them with his fork and placed them in the cup holder on his tray. So I took him out of his high chair and told him he was done with lunch. I am not going to cater to him. I am not going to have a picky child, he will eat what he is served and at the risk of sounding like my mom, I am not running a restaurant! So tonight for dinner I warmed up his carrots and placed them in front of him. Again, they soon found a place in the "I'm done" cup holder. Now he has had no lunch and no dinner. So guess what is on the menu tomorrow for breakfast? Steamed carrots.

It made sense in my head.

Over the last few weeks, my dishwasher has started to turn colors. I didn't really notice or really pay it any attention, I just figured hey, dishwashers are self cleaning, it will take care of itself. Well my mom came up for a visit and apparently they aren't. Go figure. I mean all of that soap and hot water swishing around in there for 4 hours, you would think that some cleaning would go on. But no. My mom informed me that you actually have to clean them once in a while. So today I did. It is bright and shiny clean now but leaves me wondering, does this mean I have to clean other things that I thought were self cleaning, like the shower, toilet and sinks?
Just kidding.
