Problem solved

I will say I've gotten pretty creative over the last few months. Or at least gained some skills. You've seen pictures of my bottle propping. Well, it's also expanded so I can rig it up just about anywhere. It's especially handy at the park so I can run over to help Cash when needed. Since I'm getting so good at rigging up just about anything, I just realized - shoot, why didn't I try this earlier:


Just try crying all night now!!

I was sitting in the physical therapy office a few months back and saw they had some doctors masks sitting on the counter, probably for sick patients I assume. Well, the babies were young and had trouble keeping their pacifiers in and it got old going all the way downstairs just to pop a pacifier in. So I looked at the masks, thought of the babies, looked at the masks, and thought - hmmmmm..... So I took one home. And forgot about it until just the other day when I came across it. Perfect! They can even smile and laugh and still keep the thing in! Think I can patent them?

Ok, ok. I'm sure it's a hazard of some sort. But it's still kind of a good idea.

I've thought about doing that so many times, but perhaps with N projectile spitting up, attaching a pacifier to her face might not be the best idea... :)

Yeah, that was why we decided it's probably not a good idea either. :)

Absolutely BRILLIANT! Ben and I laughed hysterically.

that is the BEST... not to mention the smile underneath that binky! I think he's diggin' the idea as much as you!

I for one love this idea. My cousin works at the patent office, let's hook it up.

You may have come across a million dollar idea here! I get the vomiting problem though...hmmm. Still totally worth a few hours sound sleep. I was so grateful when Harrison could find the binky clipped to his shirt. This solves it for the younger babies.
Brilliant.

Ashton or Phoenix? My guess is Phoenix. Right?

I was always trying to figure something like that out for my second. Nothing ever worked.
I'll miss reading your blog-I hope your hiatus isn't too long!

Do it! We were sitting around trying to think of a new idea the other day. Trying to get rich off of being a stay at home mom. I think it's great and I would buy it.
