THIS is what tired sounds like

Today has been one of “those days.”
Gabby is sick. Double ear infections. And? She’s working on EIGHT teeth. My heart aches for her. I finally was able to suck enough snot out to allow her to breathe a little, and she is now taking a nap. (Let’s see how how long she actually STAYS asleep.)
I’ve been holding the girl for 2 days straight now. My back is aching, I smell like puke, pit and chex mix AND I have gas.
I’m not complaining though, I’m just “tellin’ it like it is”.
8 minutes. She slept for 8 minutes.
Before I go, I would like to leave you with todays Self Portrait.



p.s. Don’t hate me because I fart fire.
p.s.s Where’s YOUR self portrait?

    Poor kiddo — and mommy! I think you and I both need a week’s vacation where we do nothing but lie on a private beach and sleep. Of course, we have to shower first don’t we?

    Poor girl, she’s getting em all at once. Apparently I did that too, I’m hoping C doesn’t.
    I hope she gets over the earache soon, so you can get some rest.

    I wasn’t really all that scared of you before, but now, if I saw you in public, I’d have to run away. That portrait is downright terrifying. If that really is you, no wonder poor Gabby is crying!

    I had a dream that you wrote this long “letter to your fans” about how it was time for you to move on. That you got married so young and now you needed to move to Seattle with your gay cousin and have a life of your own and leave Tony and your kids.
    It was straight creepy.
    Glad to know it was only a dream and you are simply taking care of a barf machine!

    Take your daughter to a pediactric chiropractor and she can align gabbys spine and neck to clear the ear canals for better drainage.
    I am not joking.
    Some babies have the small bones in their head/jaw compressed from child birth and thus preventing proper drainage. A chiropractor can fix this for a fraction of the cost of doctors and meds.

    I hope that Gabby feels better soon! Ear infections are the worst. And I hope if you take her to the chiropractor the adjustment doesn’t hurt as much as the one I had the other day. Ouch.
