I follow a couple of blogs that post a weekly feature called "Not Me Monday." It's a fun little way to fess up to all of the things that make us human. Well this weekend you did something superhuman (by our standards) and we did something we weren't supposed to do, so I thought it would be a perfect time to join the Not Me Monday gang.
(Hmmm...did anyone notice anything?)
This is certainly is NOT a video of you crawling around, laughing, banging on your drum, hooked up to oxygen, and oxygen alone. Because WE would never take you off of your ventilator for 30 minutes without getting a doctor's order. ;)
And this is not what your pulse oximeter read after 30 minutes of you breathing by yourself....
There are some other things I do not want to admit-
I did not drag my family to the pumpkin patch after the stomach flu ransacked our house for 2 days (pics to come...no..not of the flu of the pumpkin patch...) because it's all I wanted to do on my b-day.
I was not in tears today at the pharmacy because they still didn't have your prescriptions filled after I went there three days in a row and called before I went to make sure they were filled. You are not already out of some of your meds which does not make me even more of a wreck than I already am.
We did not take apart your crib this evening and you are not laying on the floor of your room on a mattress- (Kosovo-style) because this was not our last stitch effort to get you to sleep better.
Hmmm..and maybe this reverse psychology stuff will work on you tonight- and you will not get a good night's sleep tonight because Lord knows we don't all need it.
We love you, sleepless nights and all, little lamb,
Mommy & Daddy too.
