Thinking Anything If You're Thinking

Miss Sasha, Mr. Sasha and Panky will be staying overnight with us on Friday. We keep our house as clean as two people with multiple jobs can, which is to say that it's tidy with cat fur tumbleweeds. That's fine for us, but when we started thinking about what a two-year-old might pick up and sample for flavor, out came rubber gloves and the shop vac. Tonight, Pete boiled the bathroom. Tomorrow, he'll set up a bed, I'll clean the cat boxes, vacuum everything and we're going to shampoo a carpet. At home in North Dakota, Panky lives with cats and a 125 lb. dog, so the little guy's unlikely to nibble cat poop. I think. Anyway, it's been awhile since I lived with a toddler, but I remember that no matter how clean the house, the child will find something that formed its own disastrous ecosystem.

You'll be pleased to hear I made fresh yogurt. You know: to boost the immune system.

Remember when you think I've done more than you- I've never had a kid. And I've never made yogurt.

Lady, you run circles around me. It's charming, really.
