Something clever this way comes...
Who Does That? Clever Invention.

I'm so envious of people who come up with clever things. Case and point: my Itzbeen timer.  Got it in the mail yesterday.

Itzbeen Timer 

See, you just push one of the buttons on the right and the timer next to it starts over.  Nothing new here -- no new technology, no new concepts.  Just a very smart design -- obviously from someone who has had children.

I used it last night, and it was SO nice.  Instead of waking up at 3:30 and thinking, "Guhhhhh...how long has it been since Johanna nursed?  When did she fall asleep?"...followed by some very challenging math..."I think she ate at 11:45 and it's 3:22 now, so carry the 8 and divide by pi..." now all I have to do is look at my Itzbeen timer.  

Turns out baby J eats every two & a half to two & 3/4 hours.  Ugh.  The good news is, I strongly suspect she'll eventually drop one of those feedings.  At least...that's my hope.

Many thanks to DaddyClay and Dadlabs for advertising this gizmo.  I know I'm going to love it.
