Dumb-Ass Extraordinaire!

That would be the one and only me.

Who found her husband's flight was coming in a half hour early, hustled herself and the baby out the door, was gone for 2 hours, and completely forgot the sippy cups sterilizing in the green pot on the stove.

The green pot now has a colorful plastic lining. The house reeks.
The good news is that we know our smoke detectors work and are loud enough to hear outside the house. The other good news is that nothing caught fire and the C02 levels are miniscule.

Fireman No. 1 comes in the door, "I know that smell. It's burning baby bottles. " Fireman No. 2 follows him in, "I've done that." Fireman No. 1, "I think we've all done that."

I definitely owe NVFD Co. 1 a batch of homemade cookies.

Must be the day for forgetting things... today I left the toaster oven on for about 3 hours after toasting my sandwich. It's located on the counter just below the sippy cup cupboard... a few hours after turning it off the cups in the cupboard were still a bit warm.

It's very easy to forget about things when you have a kid - half your mind is dedicated to their well being and as soon as they make a peep you drop what you are doing and run to help them. Then you forget what you were doing before and get distracted by something else, and before you know it there are half finished chores all over the place. Soon your brain is retrained to temporary amnesia every time the slightest distraction happens - the phone rings and you leave the water running. A car honks it's horn and you leave your purse in the shopping cart at the store. Someone knocks at the door and... hey... what is that shiney thing over there...
