Okay, so if you are still reading, I love you! You passed my test of a true follower; a true friend. And if you continue to the end and actually feel like leaving a comment, it will totally make my most boring day!
Yesterday, my little nut, Nephi, woke up from his nap with a fever of 104. Completely lethargic, and totally unlike him, he just laid on the couch and whimpered. After giving him a dose of Tylenol to get his fever down, I rushed him to Instacare. Emphasis on INSTA. Not so insta. We waited for an hour in the waiting room, and there was hardly anyone there. Nephi was like an oven and laying on my chest -- I was actually sweating! Poor little guy was hardly moving. Finally, we got in. Ear infection. I suspected as much. They gave him some Ibuprofen and a popsicle and suddenly like magic he was Mr. Perky. He skipped out into the waiting room like new.
As we left the office, an Elderly couple that had been waiting with us, was leaving at the same time. They marveled at Nephi's complete change of status. The elderly man said, "Wow, I want what they gave him!"
"Ibuprofen and a popsicle, works every time," I told him. Nothing like a good sugar high to lift the spirits.
Well, I've got to go. I hear motherhood calling me from the next room! Have a great day!
