Yesterday, our helper did not appear for work. She stays out and comes in at around 7 or 8 or later (although our agreement was that she would come in at 6 am) and leaves at 6. She has been with us for only three months and I have already forgotten how many times she did not appear for work and not once did she tell us beforehand that she isn't planning to report the next day.
So, I was feeling like a good ol' housewife yesterday and started to wash the dishes. I then washed my baby's feeding bottles, put them on the big pot for sterilizing, put it on the stove, and washed some more dishes.
A few minutes later, I heard some hissing and smelled something burning. Arrgggghh, the bottles!!! I forgot to put water first before I turned on the stove. And too late, everything was melted. I couldn't even take them out of the pot anymore. Haaaaayyyy.
|This work's all on me. Very original.|
|Bye bottles, bye pot, bye bottle keeper|
Funny thing is, I told my baby that I'm sorry I burned his bottles. He asked why. I said, because I forgot to put water on the pot before I turned on the stove. He said, "Hay naku!" and went outside to check his bottles. Hahaahaha!
So we went later to the mall to buy new bottles. When I gave it to him, he screamed with delight, "WOOOOWWWW!!!" My baby is still a baby.
Absent-minded? Or really an undomesticated goddess?
