HA: padme

And I thought my diaper-days were over....


So, why did I think I was done with cleaning up poop just because my youngest was potty-trained?

Took Himself to the doc this AM. On the way, we had the oil in the van changed, then dropped Herself off for some girl-time with Grandma. Himself kept complaining that his stomach hurt, but he didn't feel hot, so I just let him be.

The doc wasn't in - so we saw the stupid-oh-lord-I-hate-her NP. She's mis-diagnosed him 3 times - so far - and I think today probably makes #4. She gave him a pretty cursory going-over, told me that no, strep does NOT have a cough (so, ummm, why did I have a really bad, hack-my-lungs-up cough 2 days before my doctor diagnosed strep??) and that this was just fall allergies. No drugs were prescribed (which is OK - I'd rather pass on meds for Himself if he doesn't need them) and off we went.

We picked up G'ma and Herself and went to lunch. While there.....he went to the bathroom and came out upset - he'd messed up his underwear. Big Time. I hustled him into the girl's room, made him strip off his shorts and underwear, and attempted to clean up the mess.........

He wouldn't let me trash the underoos - they were his "favorite" Bob the Builder ones - so I rinsed and rinsed and rinsed them out while he flashed the women coming in. (Yes, I apologized profusely. Fortunately, they were all Moms.) I dropped him off at the table and hustled the wet, wrapped in 20 paper towels evidence out to the van.

He made it almost to the end of lunch....and did it again. *sigh*

So, he's home, showered, changed into fresh, clean, not-his-favorite-but-OK Bob the Builder underoos, and camped in front of the TV, slurping up Sprite and water. I dosed him with 2 tsp of Pepto-Bismal...and he's been "OK" since.....but still.

If he's not better tomorrow, I'll dose him Monday and call the doctor back and complain. It could just be a small bug; it could be something he's hoping.

Can I ask the PTB to make 2006 a bit better?

And now for something a little different (lemming)

Modern, Cool Nerd
60 % Nerd, 60% Geek, 43% Dork
For The Record: A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia. A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one. A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions. You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!
