First: Why is it that, despite a wide range of beautiful, age appropriate, developmentally stimulating toys that we have all over the house to entertain the baby boy, he only wants to play with the things that aren't toys? Maybe I need a good cardboard box to distract him from the iphone, the Blackberry, the laptop and the remote control!
Second, and most important: Why do my Rice Krispie treats always turn out hard and stale instead of soft and gooey? I follow the recipe exactly, and as soon as they cool, they taste like cardboard. I can make gourmet 4-course meals out of virtually nothing for my family, but I can't make soft Rice Krispie treats. (And I really, really wanted some...)
Okay, I know there's some seriously smart people out there. Someone needs to save me from a lifetime of stale rice krispie treats and hiding the remote control from the baby. Who's day is it to know everything?
