Wow, I haven't done this in forever! Well, this is a great story about what I did not do to revive this Monday tradition!
No, I most certainly did not attempt to boil four new pacifiers to sterilize them, only to become so preoccupied with my tantrum-throwing four year old that I completely forgot about said pacifiers. They were not left on the stove to boil for over an hour in a small amount of water. The water did not evaporate, leaving the now very sterilized pacifiers to melt and stick to the bottom of the pan. No, I might not have burned down RMH had it not been for a keen-smelling man coming to investigate the burned rubber stench.
When I came to the realization that said burned rubber stench was some extremely sterile pacifiers, I did not run into the kitchen and burst into tears at the sight of a very scorched pan and a whole bunch of on-lookers. I did not proceed to have a total meltdown that was a result of a pretty terrible day that culminated with melted pacifiers. I'm sure people did not wonder if I still had my sanity. I certainly didn't begin to question that myself.
And in case you're wondering, nope, I didn't call Matt and beg him to turn his car around from his south-bound direction to our house and head up here at 10:00 p.m. I would never do something like that. I am totally in control of my emotions and can handle anything that comes my way.
Enough of what I didn't do. Today, I did buy four brand new pacifiers, I did sterilize them, and I did stay in the kitchen the whole time the water boiled. I also did take the pan off of the stove in a timely manner and the pacifers did sterilize perfectly fine. :)
