I had planned on posting this at the butt crack of dawn today BUT and entire array of black cloud events loomed in my path:
***A 7 week old with whooping cough, possibly pertussis.
***Having to the be at the Naval Hospital for an appt with only 16 minutes notice.
***Getting reprimanded by a field grade Naval Officer for speeding in the parking lot and almost running him over.
***Watching my 7 week have blood drawn from his arm and his nose swabbed almost up to his brain.
***Being told that the antibiotic they want to put him on hasn't been tested all that much on infants less than 2 months. Nice.
***Getting DRENCHED (like ring your clothes out wet) by the pouring rain as I ran with a stroller, 2 babies and my Miah to the VERY last row of the parking lot.
***Having to redo my hair and change clothes to meet a lunch date.
***Getting a call from Kora's school saying she's sick as I'm on my way to the lunch.
***Turning around to get Kora and having to leave me THREE kids in the car because the school doesn't allow strollers (don't judge me...I'm not in the mood.)
***Having the school tell me I have to show my ID which I left in the car because it's a new policy they just started Dec. 1st. Perfect timing.
***Running back to the parking lot to grab my ID and back to the school.
***Having the school take FOR EVER to call Kora from her class only for her to arrive at the office and say to me, "MOM, I'm not sick anymore!" in her most sarcastic tone.
***Finally getting to my lunch date only to see that BOTH babies have fallen asleep.
***Getting out the stroller and loading them up when they BOTH wake up and so I'm not wanting to take the stroller inside anymore.
***UNloading the babies to put the stroller away and then realizing I don't have enough hands to carry in both babies so I have to leave one in the car and come back for him.
***FINALLY sitting to eat as I'm dripping with sweat.
Michele, thanks for putting up with me today. I'm sorry I'm so high maintenance. I'll give you the chance to opt out of our friendship RIGHT NOW, no questions asked if you want.
