Speaking of which, a trip to Prompt Med confirmed what my Mommy-senses suspected, Strep Throat. And, umm…did I mention I accidentally drank after her on the way there? (I have this heavy feeling of being all doomed and stuff hanging over me now!)
|We did sort of accidentally end up|
bringing home matching slippers.
Hey, it made her feel better. REALLY!
She’s currently on the antibiotics, snuggled in her sick bed (the couch) and looking so sweetly pathetic that we’re all bringing her anything her heart desires to keep her spirits up. *falls over laughing* Truthfully? No one will go within 10 feet of her until the “24 hours of antibiotics” mark.
Yesterday she was still “debating” with me her “revert to child when sick” status until the Doctor entered the room. I thought I’d misheard him as he was running through the standard litany of questions, “Is your throat sore? Have you had any drainage? Are you couching? Do you just feel all icky?”
Wait…what? Did he just say “icky?” I must have misheard him. He probably said “achy.”
As soon as he left the room to go write the prescription, The Girl turned to me and said, “Did you SEE that!?! He was talking to me like I was a five year old. He even said icky!”
That was when we both lost it. I’m sure it’s not the average scene the Nurse is used to walking in on, two seemingly adult females laughing so hard there is danger of bladder leakage.
The funniest part was when we went to the drug store to pick up her meds. We walked up to the “Drop Off” window, and the smiling Lady on duty looked up and said, “Hi Chris! What are we getting for you today?” Yeah, like I was a regular at the bar and my favorite bartender was about to fetch me a beer.
When I informed her it was a script for The Girl and not me, her comeback was, “Huh. Well, THAT’S different!”
Which goes to prove I spend WAY too much time at the pharmacy!
So, with my Princess on the mend and the fact that the pharmacy is my home away from home well established, I’ll share with you one more piece of total awesomeness before I go…
There is a blog I follow called “They Call Me Mummy.” It’s written by a wonderful woman named Michelle Lewsen, mother of three and writer extraordinaire! Over the weekend she contacted me and asked if I’d like to do a “blog swap” with her. I didn’t even have to think about it…HECK YEAH I would!
And no, I won’t tell you what my MOMfession is. You’ll have to visit “They Call Me Mummy” on Wednesday to find out. (But only after you read her amazing post here!) (Wait, does that make it sound like I think my space is #1? OK, visit her blog first, then come here.) (Wait, does that make it sound like I think my writing is #1? OK, flip a coin to see where you go first…just make sure to visit both!)
