Do you wanna know how I personally knowÂ that the cold/flu seasonÂ is a real phenomenon and not something made up byÂ vaccine companies and the CDC?Â Well here it is:Â My sonÂ simultaneously coughed and sneezed into my mouth this morning as I wasÂ buckling him into hisÂ car booster seat.Â It tasted pretty much like my own spit and snot, other than the bits of waffle that were mixed in with it.Â Yummy.Â I very kindly said “bless you little guy,” to which he replied in his ever pleasant deadpan way “leave me alone daddy.”Â Oh, I just want to eat him up!Â TheÂ irony (or is it just a coincidence?) of the pending cold or fluÂ that’s brewing in my boyÂ is that he was scheduled for a flu shotÂ this weekendÂ and now, of course, we are going to have to cancel.Â As many urban parents know, it’s not easy getting appointments with decent doctors.Â
And my car’s check engine light is on.
You just told a story only a “real” parent can appreciate (LOL). Also, your little one sounds like quite the character (smile)!
please remind me not to read this while eating breakfast! especially when we’re making waffles. o.mi.god.
It’s always something, isn’t it? Esp. when you’re a parent.
I actually held off on my kids’ flu shots because I have known so many people who got the shot, only to turn around and get the flu promptly thereafer. It’s a tough call.
At least his body is building antibodies as he fights this cold right now. That’s like a natural vaccine in itself. Sorry, I know you’d rather not hear this right now. I sure wouldn’t. But it’s true!
OH MY! This was so HILARIOIUS. It remided me of a time when my godson was a baby. I was laying on my back holding him above my head and he spit up and of course it went right into my mouth. I almost tossed my OWN cookies. LOL
I know what you mean about good doctors. I’m new to Georgia and have found the quality of health care I’ve experience since being here isn’t what I’m used to. Hope you’re able to get him in.
So gross..yet so familiar. My daughter’s snot taste a bit like oatmeal.
