You should be jealous of me

Here are two reasons you should be jealous of me:

First, what could this baby be eating that is making her so happy? Why, its broccoli! Yes, my daughter is eating broccoli. I am counting it as a personal victory.













Second, I have the greatest garbage can in the universe. The only way it could be better is if it emptied itself and put in a new bag. I can hear you saying, "a garbage can? seriously? what's so great about it?" Well, my friends, let me tell you. It has two compartments inside, one for garbage and one for recycling. I love that! Also, it has one of those little pedals to step on to open it. I need something with a lid because of my crazy baby, but it's nice to be able to open it with my foot so that when I have my hands full, I don't have to worry about it. The coolest part (in my opinion) is how it closes. How it closes? Yes, you read it correctly. It closes in slow motion which is wonderful for my little baby's fingers! It closes flush with the sides so she can't get into it! Well, almost flush, she can worm those chubby little fingers in there sometimes. I found a barbie in the recycling this afternoon. I don't think anything will stop her. She'll just have to grow out of it... I hope.

I AM jealous! I especially am jealous of the trash can! I like the double sides. I hate that I pile up my recycling stuff on the counter until I have enough to warrant a trip to the garage.Where did you get that trash can?

I think I NEED your garbage can from the future! Do tell: where did you acquire all its gloriousness???

That is so funny. Broccoli was one of Noah's first favorite foods! I was also shocked.... he still loves it though, and his new fave are tomatoes!

Love the trash can too!

Did you ever think 10 years ago that you would be excited about those kind of things? The things we get excited about now-a-days. I do love the garbage can, and the broccoli eating baby.

I was admiring it this weekend, but it would be nice if they designed it with a larger recycling side. Where we live, our waste management cans are half the size of our recycling cans, so we have to recycle about everything except food and diapers.

Finally. I have been thinking they need two sides to a garbage can for a long time. I'm glad you have one. I will have one someday!
