Here’s what it looks like now …
No, we don’t feed our baby Hamburger Helper. Not yet, at least. I decided to go with Option A, and switch his stuff to a larger cupboard.
Here’s the new-and-improved cupboard:
It hasn’t even been 24 hours yet, but already it’s sooo much more convenient. This is the (much larger) cupboard that used to house Mr. Hamburger Helper and his pantry buddies. But it was seriously empty, as you can tell by how easily it all fit into the smaller cupboard.
Since we have to open Baby Boy’s cupboard about ninety times a day to get bibs, cups, bottles, etc., so it’s much nicer to have room to put everything. No more cramming things back in! It’s also nice to be able to fit ALL of his stuff together — even things like his special no-egg pasta (have yet to make it), and canned vegetables (also have yet to make them) that were formerly housed with “our” food.
I honestly don’t know why it took me so long to think of this. I think I was just so accustomed to everything being in its own usual cupboard that it never occurred to me that THINGS CAN MOVE. STUFF CAN CHANGE. Because hey, who knows, it might even FUNCTION BETTER. Lesson learned!
