Animal Planet’s, “Too Cute” and my guy.
My son is sick and asleep in my bed. It’s the middle of the night and he wakes up because he’s thirsty. He gets out of bed, leaves my room, walks down the hall, past the child gate, into the living room, past another gate and into the kitchen. (I’ve been following him, curious of his nighttime stroll. We have sleep-walkers in the family. ) He goes right up to the sink and points. “Wawa?” I ask. He points and nods yes. So I get him a cup and fill it with water. He takes it and goes back the way he came to my room. He sleepily takes a sip. I ask him if he’s had enough. He shakes his head no. Then he knocks one back, spilling water all over himself. Now it’s just about 1 AM and he’s wide awake and won’t touch the water. It’s going to be a long night.
I’m sitting on the corner of my king size bed, in my room, watching, “Too Cute” on Netflix and eating my vegan tacos. Two of my four kids are sick with Croup, Shane and I finally got them to bed and I realized that I’ve only gone pee once today.
I’m so tired that I’m beyond any form of sleep and I said I was going to write more, so here I am writing. Shane is laying on the other side of the bed and his black, gold toed, sock covered, feet are right in front of me. He’s arm is next to Allie, our youngest daughter and the eldest of the sick ones, and he’s rubbing her feet and back trying to comfort her. She’s been sick for a few days now and I think we are taking her to the doctor in the morning. One of the worst parts of having a sick child is taking them to the doctor and hearing them say that you brought them in to early to treat. I thought the point of western medicine was to help people, especially children, get better sooner not have them get worse before they can be treated. I think she’s over the worst of it though. My poor Liam, my youngest, is just getting started.
I’ve recently discovered Vine. I missed becoming famous with that by a half of a year. (@shab_stuff) I bet nobody remembers the app, Cheers. I was on that in the first few weeks of it going live and I had so many cheer points! I was super famous on that app, unfortunately, I was only one of about 200 people and after 15 months of, “cheersing” stuff with no new users I had to accept that it wasn’t going to catch on. 😥 I’m still not sure what’s going on with the Circle app, and I’m open to opinions.
I want to apologize to any readers who were drawn in by my awesome title only to find themselves tricked into reading it’s stupid content. I thought I was going somewhere with this post.
Anyway… Isn’t that what Ellen says after all her shows? It’s like her production company slogan or something.
