Remember the last time you cleaned the crumb tray from underneath your toaster?


Before 4 a.m. this morning, neither did I.

There's something to be said for this weird nesting instinct that kicks you into high gear to get everything done in your house before the baby arrives - and I'm talkin' things that haven't been done in YEARS. Add to that the upcoming arrival of a house full of guests this week and you find yourself doing strange cleaning rituals at 4 a.m. when you can't sleep.

Like cleaning the 2 crumb trays from your dual toaster.
And when big crunchy chunks are stuck and prevent the tray from going back in, you'll find yourself with a strange sense of urgency to dig them out.
With a wooden chopstick.
At 4 a.m.
With only the small microwave overhead providing shadowed light on the whole ordeal.

I mean, hey, who would want to turn on the kitchen overhead light and run the risk of providing an actual opportunity for the neighbors to possibly see an 8-month pregnant woman digging in her toaster with a wooden chopstick at 4 a.m.?!?

(And, it's perfectly reasonable to assume that a house guest would get the urge to look in the toaster crumb tray and then pass judgement on your lack of cleaning and therefore parenting skills, right?!? It so OBVIOUSLY had to be done...)
