Rag time

Here’s a little trick my mother-in-law taught me. I don’t remember how long it takes her hot water to get to her kitchen faucet, but it certainly takes some time for my kitchen faucet to get hot water. I can wait more than a minute (yes, 60 actual seconds) for hot water.

So, instead of waiting for warm water, I wet a rag and put it in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds. Nice and toasty!

Unfortunately, even a warm washcloth doesn’t help Hayden accept a post-oatmeal-smearing meal face washing.

  1. I use a trick to get my sons to let me wipe their faces off after a meal… I make a sik/sik/sik noise (like when you are shooing a cat away) at them while I am wiping and they pay more attention to the noise than the wipping. Now that they are older, I still make the noise and they are very compliant. Hope this helps.
