The child has been experiencing much firsts lately.

Like, his first severe double ear infection! What a joyous occasion for us! Especially when he is running an 105 degree fever, and we’re 500 miles from decent medical care!

A quick trip to Anchorage was in store – so quick, I didnt even pack my computer.

If you know me, you know this is something i NEVER DO.

I would take my computer in to the bathroom with me if I thought a)Brandus wouldnt mock and b)it might not get wet.

So, a quick fun jaunt off to Anchorage later, where the screamy unhappy HOT child was injected directly with an antibiotic, due to the severity of the infections. Also, the doctor warned me his eardrums might pop so his ears could drain, and to try not to freak out.

they didnt, so we didnt have to test my inability to follow that direction.

Less than 12 hours later, i had a completely DIFFERENT CHILD. I hadnt realized how very off he was until he was back on his game.

He’s feeling much better now, but I would like to lodge a formal complaint with the Maker for giving me a child with a broken warning system. Ears should be pulled! Crying should occur specifically when lying down and nursing! Not this SUDDENLY IM SCREAMING BUT IM ALSO DROOLING MAYBE IM TEETHING BUT IM NOT TELLING that was going on.


The Dark Lordling did try to make it up to me today though. He called me “Mama.”

Kiss ass.

    Kiss ass indeed! I am assuming this was an accident. He’s not actually speaking yet right?

    you are somewhat of a goddess mother to me for having a wee one in the alaskan tundra. i was a basket case sometimes being 2 miles from our pediatrician. also, i HATED it when noah started saying mama and people would say “just wait, you’ll wish later that he’d never learned that word! hyuck,hyuck,hyuck!” jerks.

    except now it’s kind of true.

    Awww, showing his powers of manipulation early. What a good little Dark Lord. I can’t wait until he takes over the world. :)
