There are a few major differences between homeowners and apartment dwellers, but the issues become significant when the following happens:
1. Your LO has a shitsplosion. A shitsplosion that involves you dissessembling his entire swing and scrubbing it in the bathtub. Because you’re not bringing the baby to the laundry room. And you can’t leave him alone in your apartment.
2. Neighbors. It’s not your imagination. They hate you now. All of them. Irrevocably.
3. Sure, your baby just threw up and pooped all over the carpet (don’t ask how). And, yeah, you’re going to scrub the mess up. But, honestly, it’s not your carpet. So, you’re not going to try that hard.
5. I know baby wipes aren’t flushable. I just don’t care. Calling the plumber is the one thing that’s not my responsibility.
