Lists

Lists:
I have decided to compile two lists, one for mommy and one for baby. I realize I won't get everything I want on these lists, but what else do I have to do right now. Besides finish cleaning the fridge. That can wait, it's not going anywhere.

Baby list:

  1. Two or three new bottles: Avent 9 oz bottles with nipples (2-3). I really only need a few of these. I will mainly breastfeed, but sometimes Lucas likes to help out and give me a break. Avent has different nipple sizing. Size 1 is only for the is the first month. That is when I will be the only one feeding our baby so we don’t need that size. We have to get new the new bottles because of they are BPA free.
  2. High Chair: This can wait until the baby is at least 5 months old. We started feeding both Carl and Calvin at around 5-6 months. There should be no rush to start feeding your baby anything other then breast milk or formula unless directed by your doctor for some medical reason. I think there are more chances of baby developing allergies if started to soon. I want a nice highchair that both the chair and tray are easy to clean.
  3. Diaper Genie II Elite system: I checked it out online and it looks pretty nice.
  4. Baby swing: But, I have already blogged about that.
  5. A new infant car seat with base: Apparently we need a new baby seat because ours has expired :( or it will when the baby is 3 months. We need to find an Evenflo one that works with our stroller system.

    Mommy List:
  • A couple of new nursing bras
  • A new diaper bag I'm looking at Vera Bradley. I have one of her purses and the patterns are really cute for mom.
  • Ok that is it for now I'm tired.

Big day!!

Big day:
Yesterday was our big appointment, the sonogram: Weight 143 lbs. First, I made the mistake of starting to drink my 32 oz of water at 9:15 am when my appointment was at 11am. By 10 am my bladder was extremely full and it hurt. I called up Lucas and told him to drink that amount of water and not to go to the bathroom. When he said he does that all the time, I told him to put a brick on his stomach/bladder area. I finally couldn't take it anymore and I had to go pee. Then I refilled my 32 oz hospital mug up again and start over. I had drunk about half of it when we left to go get Carl from school. I had my mom go in to get him. By the time they came out I was crying because I was in so much pain from having to pee. I ended up having to go into the school and use the bathroom. There was no way I would have made it with all the bumps and potholes along the way. I still had 15oz left in the mug so I drank it on the way to the doctor’s office. Then I filled it up again halfway at the water cooler at the doctor’s offices.
I got most of it finished by the time they called me back.The sonogram technician put the jelly stuff on my tummy, it was hot!! Previous times it was always cold. It was nice that it was warmed up but it was a bit too hot. Then she put the sonogram wand on my belly and moved it around. Then there was the baby. First it was looking at us and waving, and then it kind of turned its head. It was very active, bouncing here and there. The spine looked good. All the fingers and toes looked intact. The baby was moving it's fingers, apparently down syndrome babies can't always open and close their fingers. After what seemed like forever the sonogram was finally over. Don't get me wrong, I love meeting my little baby but it’s kind of a bittersweet moment. You get to see this precious person but you also have to really pee and the technician pressing the wand on your belly makes it even worse.
Afterwards when I gave my urine sample, I think I could have filled up 5 of those cups. I don't think my pee had ever been that clear before. (If I offend anybody with bathroom talk then too bad this is a blog about pregnancy not about manners.)Then I had my regular appointment. They asked if we wanted the 4 marker test done. This is the test for down syndrome and whatever else. We said no thanks. Everything in the sonogram looked good and we would love the baby no matter what. If there were problems we might have it done it, but only to prepare ourselves and find out what we could do. But sense everything on the sonogram looked fine, we felt there was no need to cause more stress to myself or the baby. My midwife was glad to see that I was gaining weight and told me to keep eating and gaining weight.
After the appointment we all headed over to Applebee's for lunch. We didn't have to take Carl back to school because on Wednesday he gets out at 1:20pm. So there was really was no point.At Applebee’s I had the cheeseburger sliders and onion rings. The sliders were OK though they had a few too many onions. The sliders were certainly not white castle quality, but of course I haven't had any of them since I was a kid.
The boys and I went home and Lucas went back to work. I was exhausted and almost made the mistake of taking a nap. Thankfully as I started to put in some dates into my outlook calendar I saw the boys had a dentist appointment at 3pm. It was then 2:30pm. Yikes! I told them brush your teeth and let's go!! We got there in plenty of time thankfully.I'm going to go watch the office now. Next time I'm going to put up a list of things we need for baby and me (mom deserves to be pampered too!)

Until next time,

Nicole

The weekend

Friday:
I took the boys with me to a Mom’s Club banquet committee meeting. That is a really nice part of MOMS club, kids are always welcome. Of course except for Mom’s Night Out (MNO) but even then, if you have a little baby you are welcome to bring it. Usually though, it is a once a month opportunity for moms to get out and just be with other moms and not kids. We decided we are going to have the banquet at Genoveese again, since we had such good results there last year. Now we just have to send out a few dates for everyone to vote on to pick a date/time for event.I came home and quickly fed the boys and myself lunch. Then we went to McDonald's play land where there was an activities meeting/play date for boys. Each month two ladies in the membership help plan the monthly activities. Moms in the club are encouraged to host play dates at their house if they want to or think of things to do. I will be hosting two next month. One is a book cook: I'll read the book "What makes a rainbow". It is a cute magic ribbon book. Then the group can make dancing rainbows from paper plates and streamers. The other event I'm hosting is called Freedom Breakfast Moms (last day of school). This is an opportunity for Moms with school aged kids to to come over and bring a breakfast food item to share and while all the younger kids play. The moms can discuss how to keep summertime blues at bay and the dreaded "Mom, I'm bored and have nothing to do"’s. I look forward to hosting both events.On Friday evening at about 7pm I realize I have not made dinner or even given it a thought. I end up making strawberry pancakes with fresh whip cream. So it turned out pretty good. Everyone loved them.

Saturday: I took Calvin to his first birthday party up at Jay Bowl. I get up to park at the Union and I'm thinking its free parking because its Saturday and no football. Nope wrong, the Kansas relays are going on and to park in the union’s huge parking lot or anywhere else near the union will cost me $5 which was not going to happen. I'm not paying on a free day. Even if it wasn't a Saturday I still wouldn't pay that much. I drove around quite upset because half of KU's roads are closed. Apparently they are building a hotel near there. Finally I find a spot near campanile and walk to the union with Calvin. I was not a happy camper. It is not fun walking way out of your way with a smaller person who walks about half the speed you do. Oh yeah, the parking lot was no where near being full. It is time's like that if Carl or Calvin decide to go someplace other then KU I would not object at all.The party itself was really fun. Calvin ended up eating nachos with cheese sauce and cake. I ordered myself a hot dog since it was my lunch. I also had some cake. Calvin had fun bowling, though I think he was more interested in eating the nachos. After the party, Calvin and I went home. I was supposed to go down to Sunfire Ceramics but because of the trouble parking at KU I completely forgot about it. I remembered when I was near Target. At that point I really had no desire to turn around.

Sunday: we all went down to the Greek Orthodox church to celebrate the Greek Easter and to eat some yummy food. They had 10 different languages for the service, English, Greek, Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian, Russian, Romanian, German and Arabic. I understood none of them well except for the English. Still, it was neat to hear all the different languages.After the service there was an Easter dinner/picnic which we had some food that was pretty good. That was pretty much our day. After we came home and Lucas and I finished “Baby Mama” and just relaxed. Lastly I watched the Amazing Race. I was curious to see how those brothers do with their 4 hours of penalties.

Snack week


When we got back Sunday evening I decided to weigh myself to see how much I had gained after eating that enormous amount of food. I gained 2lbs.


Monday: I don't think I did very much just took it easy. We took some pictures of my pregnant belly at 16 weeks:

as you can see Calvin thought it was funny taking pictures of our bellies.


Tuesday: Calvin has snack day at preschool and I made mini pineapple upside cakes, very cute but not very easy to make
Pineapple rings don't like to fit easily inside a muffin tin. When I picked the cupcake container back up they were all gone so that is good.


Van broke down at Carl's school, wanted to take the boys to see the moon rock at KU but couldn't since the van didn't run. Ended up being battery and rear brakes had to be replaced. Tuesday evening I used my moms pilot to take Carl to cub scouts, they made a little frame out of materials you would find in nature. They also made dinosaur eggs and played a game outside. It was Carl's snack so we had bought rice krispie treats and Capri-suns from the previous month so we used that.


Wednesday: I don't have to go anywhere which is good since I don't have a vehicle. I use my mom's car again when I go to pick up Carl from school then come home to make a chocolate cake with espresso glaze for a Moms night out I'm going to that night. My van is finally finished and my mom drives us over to pick it up then she takes the boys home as I head to sunfire ceramics for MNO.

Cake is very yummy, we went to sunfire ceramics, everyone brought food to nibble on. We made glass pendants which isn't easy. Cutting glass is more difficult then it looks not that I ever thought it looked easy but I'm not sure how people do it. I will pick my piece up in a week or 2. IT will be some sort of abstract piece as I couldn't make it look like anything.

I think it would be fun to go back and paint ceramic which is probably less dangerous. I made the mistake of trying to brush off the glass powder with my hand and got a few glass splinters which I got out but that really hurts.



Thursday: Today, Take Calvin to preschool. Come home do some laundry watch last night's American idol. Pick Calvin up and go to Target where he picks out a toy for a friends birthday party on Saturday at Jay-bowl up at the Student Union. As I am checking out the cashier girl says I'm becoming a regular customer of hers, perhaps I really should change my address to that of target. Head home as we are driving I look back and see Calvin is passed out he ended up sleeping till almost 4pm he normally doesn't take naps so he must have been pretty tired.

I pick Carl up from school and I let him stay outside and shoot some hoops on the portable basketball hoop his dad put together. It was at 10' and he kept making shot after shot.

This evening he had another piano lesson. He knows were all of the keys are now and what notes they are, he was able to tell me where keys are positioned from their location to the black keys in the car on the way home from school. After his lesson he went outside to play more basketball this time with this dad. Calvin went outside too and played with a little tiny basketball, Lucas ended up lowering the height of it to 8' so Calvin had a little better shot and guess what Calvin made a few baskets too.

After Lucas and Carl played a game. I joined them for a game of horse then we went inside and Lucas made dinner and some more of his strawberry shortcake.


Tomorrow I have a banquet committee meeting in the morning and Carl doesn't have school.


That's all for now.

Happy Easter

*Warning this blog contains a lot of mention of food if you are sensitive to this subject please refrain from reading any further.







Thursday: Calvin's class gave the bible story presentation of Jesus being crucified, he played a soldier I think there was less blood in their reenactment then the Mel Gibson movie. Lucas came too and afterwards we went to A&W/KFC I got a papa burger-comparable to a big mac and a root beer float. Thursday afternoon after we picked up Carl from school and went to an Easter Egg hunt at another moms club member's house.

Friday: we packed and got ready to go to Nebraska. I took the girls (Lucy and Ethel to the doggie boarding place aka vets) and then went and got my van filled with gas and my car washed for the trip. We got back and at 5:45pm we headed to Nebraska. The trip was only 2 1/2 hours we passed many casino's that are on many Indian reservations on the way up. The lodge was very nice we checked out the place then went to our room to settle in for the night.

Saturday: We went down to the hotel restaurant for breakfast where I had scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, toast and apple hickory smoked bacon. After breakfast Lucas took the boys swimming and I went back to the room to relax before our big day. Since we had a big breakfast we didn't eat lunch instead we headed over to the Arbor day farm tree adventure they had an Easter egg hunt where you walked along a trail and would come upon bunnies with questions then you would try to answer them and look in the plastic egg to see if your answer was correct at the end you turned in your eggs for a bag of candy and other goodies.

Here are some pictures from our Tree adventure and of the Lied Center Lodge in Nebraska city, NE.





Saturday evening: we change rooms after receiving a very rude note from another guest at the hotel that basically said give our child some cough syrup or a breathing treatment, I was infuriated unless you know me don't ever tell me what to do when it comes to the well-being of my children. The fact is we had given him something and we try to only give him stuff at night. Doctors now say that cough syrup is pointless and probably actually makes a cough last longer instead of taking its course. Well we told the hotel people and they also agreed that it was very rude and uncalled for and we got switched to another room that was actually bigger so that was nice. Then we went to dinner Lucas and I got the buffet I started off with salad, then moved onto a vegetable melody, bow tie pasta, baked potato loaded with chives, bacon, shredded cheese and sour cream and a NY strip steak ( I had to trade steaks with Lucas because mine was medium rare and his was more cooked, normally I like medium rare but can't really have that now since I'm pregnant) Then I went back for seconds but this time I only got the veggies and the bow tie pasta. Finally it was time to hit the dessert table, I had chocolate cream meringue pie, chocolate cake, lemon meringue pie, and pecan pie. After dinner we went back upstairs Lucas gave us our Easter present which was volume 1 of Ducktales. Lucas took the boys down to Story time with Milk and cookies and then afterwards we watched a little TV then went to bed.
Sunday: Happy Easter everyone! We wake up and start packing so we can have our stuff in the van before we have the Grand Easter Brunch. At noon we head down for the brunch there are 3 stations: Appetizer, Entrees and Dessert.

First I had: Grilled vegetables, including zucchini, yellow squash, asparagus, portabello mushroom, peppers, balsamic syrup, basil and shaved Parmesan-minus the portabello mushroom cause I hate mushrooms, also I don't remember asparagus.
Sliced fresh fruit and seasonal berries. Mixed baby greens with cucumber, cherry tomatoes, julienne carrot and daikon radish with raspberry vinaigrette.
For Entree I had: Four cheese stuffed ravioli with champagne cream and asiago gratin, Cinnamon and sugar glazed smoked pit ham,Mashed Yukon Gold potatoes
Green beans with caramelized onion and smoked bacon
Breakfast Entree I had: Apple wood smoked bacon and sausage
Scrambled eggs with sharp cheddar and Monterrey jack cheeses-I actually gave most of these to Calvin as they made me not feel too good.
Ricotta cheese blintzes with strawberry preserves
Fried breakfast potatoes and a danish.
Then I went to the dessert table where they had a chocolate fountain. I dipped a pretzel stick, strawberry, cream puff and a marshmallow in the fountain. Some sort of weird banana cream pie that I thought was something else, petite fours and petite crème brûlée
So that was all I ate today for Easter brunch then we got in the van and drove back to KS. We had a good time but it is good to be back in our own home.
p.s if I haven't gained any weight after this trip then I'm not sure what to do.

Strawberry shortcakes

Pregnancy has been pretty good this week, my headaches have seemed to subside (knock on wood) Nausea has taken hiatus for now though I still watch what I eat just in case.
Monday Carl's cub scout troop went geocaching your probably wondering what that is well here is the definition: Geo caching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geo caching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment.
We went to the one on near the prairie park nature center trails ending at Mary's lake. It was pretty cold that day but the trees seemed to block some of the wind. Monday afternoon I had to go pay for my van since someone forgot too, I hadn't planned on going back out again since Carl didn't have school but I also didn't want my van being taken away. After we stopped off at the KU credit Union we went to a MOMS Club coffee talk play date at Lori's house. I enjoyed some white raspberry decaf tea and a chocolate chip cookies and many good conversations with fellow moms while the kids played. Monday night I didn't really watch the BB game just parts of it because UNC was crushing Mich State and there wasn't much of a game plus I was rooting for Mich State since they beat KU I figured if a team can beat KU and go on to the final two then perhaps KU did pretty well for themselves.
Tuesday after I took Calvin to preschool and watched one of the classrooms perform the triumphal parade of Jesus I headed over to Z's cosmetology school and got my eyebrows waxed then went home and did nothing until I had to pick up Calvin again.
Tuesday evening I made meatball subs for dinner and then the boys and I went to Carl's school for a PTO meeting. I wanted to practice my note taking skills since next month I start as secretary of the PTO. Afterwards we came home and watched American Idol, Lucas stays late on Tuesday night or he goes down to Edwards campus and he had a presentation to give.

Today: started off with a small bowl of strawberries little sugar on top and poured heavy whipping cream over them yummy but I'm sure the cream isn't the best for me but it was a small bowl. I took my van into to En Tire to get my oil changed since we are taking a trip on Friday to Nebraska and it is a week past the oil changing date (I know you don't have to get it done right on time but since we were actually going someplace I felt it is better to be safe then have a ruined car) while my van was getting the oil changed Calvin and I walked over to IHOP and had breakfast/lunch he had the rooty jr. and I had chicken strips, onion rings and mozzarella sticks. By the time we finished and walked back over my van was finished. We then drove to Carl's school since he gets out at 1:20pm on Wednesdays it would have been pointless to go home I would have had to turn right around so we just went to the school and waited.
This afternoon we went to a KU women's softball game with other MOMS club members we got a great deal of $3 a ticket for a group of 10 or more and under 5 is free so it only cost me $6. The boys were really good and actually watched the game. Lucas is trying to get a group of 20 people to a royals game on July 1st because they play the twins that day and you can get a discount. KU was playing Nebraska we left in the bottom of the 5th inning KU was down by 3 and we had been there for an hour and a half the the boys were ready to go plus I knew Lucas would home and was anxious to see him since I didn't really see him the day before. We got home and Calvin had passed out in the car, the game really wore him out. Lucas was busy making yummy strawberry shortcake for dessert and we ended up reheating some a leftover dinner from Monday night. His strawberry shortcake is different from what I was used too. You follow the directions on the Bisquick mix for the strawberry shortcake recipe but after you make the shortcake you do it a little different. You take a bunch of strawberries that you have hulled and add 1/2 cup sugar (more or less depending on your taste) then take a masher and mash them and let them get soaked in the sugar. To end you take a bowl put in shortcake put strawberries on top then pour half and half on top so yummy!
Oh Calvin is interesting he likes half and half and actually had me pour a glass for him to drink I poured him a very small amount if it and he was like yum I like it, sour is good, I like sour.

That's it for now.

Coupons- you gotta know when to use them, know when to lose them.

Last time I wrote I had a doctors appointment, I forgot to tell my weigh in there. It was 139lbs which was the same as last time I've only lost about a pound and right now I'm staying even so that is pretty good considering I normally lose more then that.
Thursday I went to the All-Member meeting for MOMS Club we had a guest speaker talk about foster parenting which while I think it sounds interesting and commend anybody who does it, its not something I could really do at least not right now.
Thursday was a pretty uneventful day, Carl had his piano lessons and that was about all.
Friday there was a ton to do and I managed to get most of it done. I was unable to pick up free tickets to the women's NIT championship game between KU and the other team from Florida that I'm drawing a blank on right now (thanks pregnancy brain) but I arrived too late at 10:30am and they had already ran out. After Calvin and I unsuccessfully finished our trip there we went over to subway to grab lunch. Aaaak I normally don't go there it was very overwhelming they have so many choices and while I'm trying to figure out the best deal of course somebody asks what I want to order so I go ahead and order even though I'm not really ready to order partially because Calvin is also very indecisive expect that he wants a cookie (not exactly lunch). I end up ordering a 6" sub with ham and cheese toasted with cucumbers and mayo and honey mustard. Calvin gets a kids meal with turkey, lettuce, pickles, mustard and honey. We take it home to eat, and yes Calvin ate all of it well expect the bread I think he is on a low carb diet I don't really mind I'd rather he eat the inside of it anyway then just filling up on unnutrional white bread. After we eat lunch we head out again heading to the executive board meeting for MOMS Club, I meet and take notes of the meeting while Calvin plays with the other kids bringing in tons of little white flowers that unfortunately mainly found their way onto the floor of my friend's house. After the meeting we quickly leave to go back across town and pick up Carl from school then we drive home where I pick up Cotton Candy our cat to take him to the vets. Carl decides to stay home but Calvin comes with me, we have a nice little soft sided cat carrier for Cotton. We take him to Dr. Bayouth and he gets weighed he is exactly 10lbs and the Vet says he looks like he is doing really good and he receives his annual shots for cats. We then leave to come home, Ahh finally I can relax for a bit.
Friday evening we find out that my cousin just had her baby boy, this is her first baby and I'm so both very excited and happy for her and her husband.
Saturday morning we wake up and head to the Engineering Library for a pancake feed it was supposed to be outside but thankfully they moved it inside as it was sprinkly and very windy.
We got free tickets from someone at Lucas's work, the pancakes were pretty good but the pancake flipper kept trying to flip pancakes to people even though they didn't want it and lots ended up on the floor. Carl actually caught a few but I wasn't up for trying, sorry not a good idea to mess with a hungry pregnant mom. After we filled up on pancakes Carl ate a whopping 9 pancakes!! we headed home. Later in the afternoon we went out again to Walmart, Kohls and JcPenny's as we had coupons for both places-gotta love those coupons! At Walmart the boys had gift cards from their Aunt Michelle to spend so they each picked out some toys. Calvin got a C-3P0, a cool thing of bubbles and something else. Carl picked up a brain quest for Math for grade 3 and he is actually doing pretty good even when he has a question about something it is more to explain it and then he figures it out in his head. We also picked up a couple movies, we got Short Circuit and Benji collection each for $5 not too bad. At Kohls we picked up some shorts for Carl and some shirts. We also got me a pair of maternity capri's and shorts and a cute top we didn't do too bad since we had a 30% off coupon. Then we went to JcPenny's we got another shirt for Calvin since I couldn't find any cute Easter shirts for him at Kohls and found out that this store doesn't carry maternity clothes. Then we got dinner at McDonald's because it was already 7pm and I didn't have much desire to cook, I don't think Lucas did either. We got home and watched some basketball then we watched Short Circuit which Calvin absolutely loved he kept laughing through it and wanted to watch it again after it was over but it was late and time for bed.

Today is Sunday, the day started off slow we went to CiCi's pizza for lunch we had not been there in a very long time afterwards we went to target and got a bunch of good deals with (you got it) more coupons. $1 off a pineapple that $1.99, $1 strawberries that Lucas will make his yummy strawberry shortcake-different then the angel food cake short cakes but more of a biscuit cake instead, which reminds me I hope we still have enough heavy cream for it.
There were other coupons and things we bought but to top it all off we also had a $5 off the entire bill over $50 coupon which it was so again that was awesome. We picked up a couple more movies. Madagascar 2 for $6.99 and Bolt for $13.99.

Tomorrow Carl doesn't have school we are supposed to go geocaching with his cub scout troop, right now I'm hesitant just cause its going to be cold tomorrow and we will be outside hiking it would be more fun if it was a nice not rainy, snowy weather. We shall see how it is in the morning.

Until Next time here is a quote about Cows, don't ask why I suppose cause we always pass cows when we go anywhere and there are some cute baby cows right now.

Who was the first guy that look at a cow and said, "I think that I'll drink whatever comes out of those things when I squeeze them?" ~Bill Watterson

April Fools day

Let's see today is April 1st did I play any jokes on anybody nope nor did I have any played on me. I successfully played one on Lucas a couple years ago by taking his shampoo bottle and removing the lid then putting a piece of plastic wrap over the opening then replacing the lid causing the shampoo not to come out that was pretty funny but he is hard to trick he is always on guard growing up with 4 other brothers and 1 sister can do that to you I guess.

We had another baby appointment and this time we brought Calvin which was nice I don't think Kathy (midwife who delivered Calvin and Carl) has seen Calvin since he was a baby. She asked if I was having any problems and I said my worst was my headaches and she informed me I can take extra strength tylenol instead of those pathetic regular strength tylenol so that was a relief to hear. We got to hear the heartbeat and this time she found it right away the heartbeat is 156bpm. She asked if we wanted to find out the sex and we told her we wanted to keep it a surprise this time but we will be going in for a sonogram in 3 weeks, it is hard to believe how fast this is going of course like I told her my two boys must be keeping me busy.

This afternoon after I picked up Carl from school/chess club we went down to Sylas and Maddy's to get an ice cream treat. Carl got chocolate chip cookie dough, Calvin got chocolate, and I got rock chocolate jayhawk-chocolate swirl, brownie and fudge pieces.

I got a really cute apron the other day from weavers it has a retro cherry pattern on it I really don't have any aprons so I decided I wanted one since I'm well I'm normally always cooking or baking something. Tonight I used it and made chocolate chip muffins for tommorows MOMS Club meeting.

So at the doctors appoinment I always pick up the free magazines and I enjoy looking at them I even check out some of the websites with products I love "window" shopping online but I find it amusing at how expensive some of the items are appearntly we are all millionares who have tons of money to throw down on baby items but still its fun to look at.

Well since it is April fools day I thought I would find out some information on that "holiday" instead today.
Actually there are many thoughts on where it originated from but I found one prank that I think is pretty amusing:
Left Handed Whoppers: In 1998, Burger King ran an ad in USA Today, saying that people could get a Whopper for left-handed people whose condiments were designed to drip out of the right side.[7] Not only did customers order the new burgers, but some specifically requested the "old", right-handed burger.[8] -wilkapedia has brought you this information.
