Why I really have to stick with the mom friends I have

I'm going to make this quick because I'm so tired I...zzzzzzzzz...*snort*...huh?

Raphael is fine. He woke up this morning with his usual bombastic charm. Antibiotics simply amaze me. What magical stuff.

Actually, the biggest issue in his life right now happens to be the penicillin. He has to take it FOUR times a day, and he hates the stuff. Every time I walk toward him with the squirty dropper full of pink stuff, he freezes and glares at me.


I know, I know, baby, but you’re taking the stuff. I’m not gonna let him come down with some antibiotic-resistant bacteria that lands us on 20/20 as a cautionary tale, OH NO. Particularly not when, if you’re playing with MY score card, this whole thing is my fault anyhow.

Where was I?

Ah yes. All is well, thank you so much for your kind words and your prayers. Please return for your regularly scheduled bloggage tomorrow. I’ve been tagged twice and am sadly remiss in my responses. So.

Thank you, and good night.



Glad to hear your little man is doing better, though I am confused as to how this is your fault. By that same logic him getting better is because of you as well- good job!


So glad to hear he's better! It's always so hard when they're sick.


I feel for the poor boy re the penicillian. When I was little I had tonsilitis all the time and would have to take the stuff at least two weeks out of every four and I just remember puking it up all the time.

I'm glad he's feeling better, though. The post yesterday was heart wrenching.

YAY! I was the ear infection kid.... had them until I was 22! I hated penicillin....


When I was a kid I had to get penicillin shots - great big needles filled with this awful looking orange stuff. To this day I still have a horror of needles. Give Raphi a hug and give yourself a break.

Slight change of subject, but this morning Raphael was waiting for a game to load on my computer, and I asked him what the computer was doing...he answered "It's loading." Not "Yoading". I almost cried! But later, when I asked him to say the words big and little, he did say big and "yiddoe", so enjoy what is left. It's going fast!
