The Care Instructions T-shirt makes parenting a simple job
The first time Jess showed me the Care Instructions T-shirt I didn't quite get it. "I love washing my hands before playing records?" I asked. Then I read the text, and got a good laugh out of it. I realize that it could be difficult to make a shirt with a more realistic breast that wouldn't raise eyebrows, but I'm still a little surprised I didn't catch on sooner.
The instructions for baby care: love without question, warm hand-wash only, breastfeed as requested. It's simple, and it's great advice, even on a T-shirt. Now that I know what I'm looking at, I like it even more. This is a great gift for anyone who is overwhelmed at the idea of becoming, or being, a parent.
Sometimes it really is this easy.
