10 Miserable Everyday Chores All Parents Hate
6. Cleaning Bottles
A dishwasher obviously fixes this issue but when our daughter was a baby, we didn’t have one. And of course, I stupidly got her into Dr. Brown’s bottles so we had that annoying little inner tube to clean along with everything else. Even with a dishwasher, trying to keep track of nipples, tops and bottles is so annoying.
7. Putting Toys Away
Every day. Every single day. Mine clean up their own now and have for a while but back in the day, I felt like all I did was shuffle around on my knees putting toys into bins. Sad trombone.
8. Vacuuming The Car
Cheerios, french fries, sand from the beach, discarded gum- there is always junk on the floor of my car. Sure, I could say “no eating in the car” but we all know that’s not going to happen.
9. Cleaning Up After A Diaper Blow-Out
Whether it’s getting poop out of the baby’s hair or scraping it off of an outfit you like too much to throw away, cleaning up after a blow-out just fucking sucks. There is no way around it.
10. Dealing With Curdled Milk Sippies
I’m a terrible and wasteful person so I would simply toss them out when I found them under the couch or on the floor of the car. Cleaning them out is just too disgusting.
