Seamus here: Troy and I have both had to spend time away from family. Troy travels on a regular basis for his work as a Realtor, but also for volunteer work with his Fraternity. I also travel frequently, mostly for my work as a Navy Reservist. In this episode, we talk about the similarities and differences between our experience in dadding from a distance. These will range from a long weekend to a 13-month deployment. Even an over nighter can present its challenges.
As promised: Here’s a link to that bottle sterilizer we mentioned, Dr. Brown’s makes some fancier ones if you’re feeling inspired to spend more money, but this one has worked like a champ*.
*It does not work like a champ if you don’t follow directions. This sterilizer uses the microwave – you’re only supposed to nuke it for 5 minutes. I accidentally hit an extra 0 and walked away, so I cooked these bad boys in the microwave for 50 minutes. That’s what I was talking about when I said I wrecked $50 worth of bottles and equipment. Pictures below.
This is what it looks like when you microwave it for 10x the prescribed amount of time.
