|Don't put a baby in here.|
When you’re bathing a baby in the little plastic baby tub in the kitchen sink someone usually comes up and says “Remember, don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater!” Okay… I didn’t know that was even possible to do. Who throws out bathwater? Do you mean to say that when you’re done bathing a baby you just dump the plastic tub out into a garbage can? No, you don’t throw out bathwater, you dump it down a drain. Babies can’t fit down a drain. Even if it somehow slipped my mind that there was a baby in this baby tub there’d just be a baby sitting in the sink. I don’t have a garbage disposal and thank god because that would be terrible. Maybe if someone has a garbage disposal you should remind them don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater and then activate the disposal, but who the hell would do that? This is just a ridiculous saying that needs to be replaced with a much simpler “Don’t throw babies!” Yet people still do. People love nothing more than tossing a baby in the air. STOP THAT!
