Things I Have Learned in the Past 24 Hours

We'll just start at the top and work our way down...

My children have sinus infections.
Sinus infections lead to a mucous drip in the back of your throat.
Mucous dripping in the back of your throat leads to a LOT of coughing.
A LOT of coughing leads to much vomiting.
Much vomiting leads to LOADS of laundry.

...and guess what else?! Laundry.does.NOT.fold.itself! WTF?!

K, what else have I learned today?

As of January 1, 2006, your insurance premiums start over. That means you are back to fulfilling an individual deductible for everyone in your household before insurance will kick in.

If you are indeed starting over, then I promise your baby's medicine will cost $56 and your insurance will cover $2.47 of that cost. [insert your own choice of bad names *here*, as I am not about to waste the one `mothereffer' I get this month]

*I am trying to cut back on the swears, but I REFUSE to cut back on the PG-13 movies (Sunshiney Sister in-law!) *

And the new cough syrup the doctor gave us (stronger, more potent, viscous and sticky crap) has made my baby HYPER. That's right, not "drowsy" as the warning sticker advises. She is still in her bed, after an hour of NOT sleeping, and now she is SINGING!

*if your baby is singing "poo poo! poo POO!" from her not-so-sleepy naptime slumber, you should probably go in with gloves, a change of clothes, and a change of sheets, blankets, and toys.


  1. Girl, my laundry doesn't fold it's damn self either. What is up with that?

    I concur. If your baby is singing the Poo-Poo song you best be prepared, lol! Too funny!

  2. wow, souonds like I missed a ton of fun over are the little miss household today. If you need me, I'll be folding my 5 loads of laundry. I swear this laundry stuff sounds like an epidemic, we might need a vaccatination! Can you ask your dad about that?

  3. LMAO!! so funny...i'm sorry to laugh!! but it's been too long without my mandi fix!!

    My new blog!

  4. Shoot... here I was blissfully forgetting all about the unfinished laundry upstairs and decided to read a few blogs instead. I get to the 5th or 6th blog... (yours) and what do I see? A LAUNDRY POST.

    crap. times up. I'm off to throw in yet another load of laundry from the pile that is waist high.


  5. Good to see the fun never ends! (And where can I get me some of that cough syrup? I'm expecting company this afternoon and I'm pretty sure artificial stimulants are the only thing going to keep me awake.)

  6. Umm, yeah that's really bad that the little one is singing about her poop. I'd send daddy in after her!

  7. Oh, that is so funny....Syd sings in her crib too. Yesterday she REFUSED a nap, and will sit in there and make raspberry sounds. I am so hoping someday that does not translate into poo-poo.

  8. One day you will come in to see your child playing the "Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo" game, poo in hand, writing on the walls.

    But I swear Mom, the poo is alive!

  9. Oh how I love your blog!!! Thanks for the laugh!

    Should we fling poo?

    Madagascar anyone?!

  10. WTH! Is everyone dealing with crappy insurance companies and doctors? I just read Dooce's post and I posted about it today weird is that? It must be floating in the cyber-air.


Oh come on-- the least you can do is say HELLO!! You didn't come all this way to turn around and walk away, did you? DID YOU??
