Waste of time...

I noticed for the first time yesterday that the tag on my Boppy pillow says, "Read before each use."

Sure, I know I'm sleep deprived and have Mommybrain, but I'm pretty sure I'm not going to forget after a couple of hours that I shouldn't let Nyssa fall asleep on the pillow or let her use it unsupervised.

I put that dang pillow in my lap every two hours around the clock, I am not going to waste 10 seconds of my life reading the tag each time.

More instructions for dummies...

I really do have a hard time believing people are truly so stupid. I know it's the litigious society we live in, but still.

Two things quickly before Pineki wakes up and demands her afternoon lunch.

1) The toy bar in her bouncy seat says, "WARNING! Do not lift seat by toy bar." That's pretty dumb, given the fact that the toy bar doesn't even latch into the seat - it just rests inside two holes and comes off at the slightest pressure. It's impossible to lift the seat by the toy bar! Now if the instructions had said, "Do not attempt to lift seat by toy bar," that would make more sense.

2) The instructions on my thin plastic bottle liners say, "Do not use sharp objects to squeeze air out of disposable liners." C'mon, I'm sleep deprived, not stupid!
