Laundry, Bananas, and Collections – Steve’s Daddy Tips 2-12-20
Hi, I’m Steve and I’m a new Dad who has learned a lot of things over the last several months and I want to pass along some knowledge to you!
Each week I will be giving you some new tips for first-time parents and one spectacular Dad joke! So let's get to the tips!
- Today’s first Daddy Tip is crucial for any parents who let their kids have a snack with them in bed. Every night, Charlotte spends about an hour watching TV with mom before bed and I like to give her some milk and snack. Well, after washing the sheets last weekend I learned the valuable lesson of checking your sheets for leftover snacks from Charlotte. After washing the sheets I saw that she had left several blueberries in the sheets from the night before. Now we have a polka dot fitted sheet.
- The next Daddy Tip is to keep whatever dumb thing your kid is collecting at this age. Charlotte is obsessed with rocks for some reason, and really has been her entire life. Whenever she goes out she loves to put them in her pockets and she grabs them from landscaping in front of stores and leaves them in my car. Well, I’ve started to put them in a shoe box and I am going to save them until she gets older and give her a box of rocks for her birthday or Christmas one year. This will either be pretty funny or make me look like a hoarder to her.
- And the final Daddy Tip of the week is how to dispose of your bananas that are on the cusp of going bad. Give them to your kiddo! If your kid is anything like Charlotte, they love bananas and they don’t mind if the peel is turning brown and the banana is starting to get mushy. So, we all enjoy our fresh bananas but as soon as they are starting to go bad, we just give them to our toddler sized garbage disposal, Charlotte!
