How difficult is it to actually place the dishes in the dishwasher? Is it any more difficult, really, than dumping it in the sink and trying to cover it up with wet paper towels, in the apparent hopes that I will not notice there are dishes in the sink? What the hell. That's all I have to say about that.
On the other hand, the Small Person has some wisdom for me today, that I feel it's imperative to share with other parents out there: there's no reason to be upset by a diaper explosion containing undigested food bits (ew. ick. gag me with a spoon.), because, as she stated to me earlier....
"Spotty poop! Mama! What a great idea! That's funny. Let's read a book now."
And so we did. Sometimes the simplest philosophy is the best, in these cases.
