This is my boss. He seems to like my work style but I’m a little concerned because we have yet to have a performance evaluation. It’s also a little confusing because sometimes he’s a really hands-off supervisor and sometimes he’s really hands-on.
Today we drove up to Langhorne, PA to visit the happiest place in a toddler’s world: Sesame Place!
And ran around in Count Von Count’s Splash Castle. This one would have been fun just for me to run around!
Jack’s cloth diapers have been starting to smell really… umm… ripe… in the last month or two. I’ve tried different types of cloth-safe detergent (my favorite is still Charlies Soap), bleach, vinegar and triple rinsing the inserts and nothing has worked to even reduce the smell. I had essentially resigned myself to permanently smelly diapers when I had the brainy idea to ask the people at MOM’s what they recommend. This little bottle cost me $6.99 and I used 1.5 cap fulls in an extra long soak load.
The smell is gone!! I’m so freeking excited. When I took the load out of the washer and went to put it into the dryer the scent of tea-tree was really strong. After a normal dryer cycle (you cannot use any fabric softener with cloth diapers you will destroy the waterproof barrier) they smell nothing but clean. It’s a miracle!! Praise the Tea Tree!
For those who don’t use cloth diapers if you have anything else around the house that you can’t get the smell out of I very highly recommend this product!
I’ve been slacking in the blog department so here are some updates: On Friday Michelle and I went for a walk around lake Elkhorn (to change up the scenery) and we saw lots of cool animals. Turtles, ducks and a blue heron. This white egret was all of 15 feet from us on the trail. Even the little kids were able to see it. When Jack yelled “Kaw-kaw” to tell me that he was also able to see the bird, the egret didn’t flinch! Later we saw it fly across the lake, I will never be not-impressed with its wing-span.
I got home from picking up the CSA and went to set up the produce for a photo shoot and someone stole a nectarine. He immediately took a huge bite out of it. In an effort to preserve the remaining yummy items we skipped the shoot entirely. But I am happy to report we have: 8 ears of corn, 2 cucumbers, 6 dinner rolls, 2 lbs peaches, 2 lbs nectarines, 1 head of lettuce, 2 lbs onions, 2 lbs summer squash, 2 lbs tomatoes.
I find that Jack loves a good dip. Guacamole and hummus are right at the top of the list. So here’s a question: Does your kid love dip? What kind(s)? If you don’t have kids (or your kids are tragically turned off by dip) please tell me about your favorite dip! I’ve been in a dippin‘ mood lately and I’m deciding to embrace it!
