Perfect Moment Monday: Repurposed
November 16, 2009
When the Burrito had his bris, the moyle gave DH a list of supplies we needed to help him recover. With a house full of guests, DH came running to me and declared urgently, “I need to go to the drugstore before it closes.”
He didn’t need to go to the drugstore.
Baby Tylenol? I already had it stocked.
Petroleum jelly? I have Aquaphor, which is supposed to be superior to Vaseline for babies.
Gauze pads? No way we had gauze pads, right? Wrong! I had them tucked away in a bag in the bottom of my closet, along with a sharps container, alcohol swabs, and over a hundred syringes and needles. Leftovers from IVF #2 and Perfunctory IUI #7 (the one that produced the Burrito and the Tamale).
It was tremendously gratifying to be able to help the Burrito with the vestiges of old pains.
Who would have thought that infertility would ever come in handy!
