    John has his hands full with a different kind of cookie dough, Elly. (With what do Michael and Elizabeth their hands full?)

    It’s probably just someone who wants your bankcard number.

    With our firstborn I always eschewed diaper-changing. I managed to duck-and-dodge around the issue to the point that I think I only changed one or two “bad” diapers. One day I came to a realization though: The one job that you will never be interrupted doing is changing the baby. For the next 3 kids I was the go-to guy for diaper changing.“Honey could you….. oh! Never mind. I’ll get it myself.”

    There are also two teenagers in the house. They can answer the phone.

    I guess that call’s going to go unanswered.

    Nope, sorry. I’m sure they’ll call back if it’s important.

    I own the phone. I use it at my convenience. And frankly, in 2021, I hardly ever answer my landline anymore. I think it’s a crime that the telemarketers have essentially made it useless.

    Lynn’s Comments:

    We weren’t allowed to say or show anything indecent. For good reason, but the cookie dough implies a shared experience.

    They are gong to need the services of a telephone sanitizer no matter who picks up the telephone. Unless they have all been sent off in the “B Ark.”

    April is getting pretty big. Time to start potty training. My boys caught on pretty early with their own kid sized potty. Are girls harder to train?

    This is nothing John! My sister has changed diapers on adults, her entire 50 years of career. She won’t quit it, and still works part time. I’d mention here that the quality of care at her place has fallen because of the vax mandates, but this probably isn’t the place to bring it up : (

    Mom just grab a towel then answer the phone. For us we are ones who have land line, we had one phone gained a short did not work well, well we changed phones for AT&T one that screens calls, best investment we made, the caller thinks answering machine picking up and hang up. Other’s fallow instructions and get through.

    Let it ring. If it’s important they will call back. After all, it would just ring if you weren’t home.

    Maybe you’ll just have to ignore the call, and if it’s important they’ll call you back. …SOLVED!

    If they had a smellophone and the call was a telemarketer let him answer it before he washes his hands
