Ask Me!

Sigh...
and yet again with the ear infection. I am pretty sure that it is just the same infection as the previous since I noticed her grabbing and squiggling her ear as I gave her the last dose of Amoxycillin last week. I wanted to give it a chance.


Really though? I'm pretty darn sure that this newest possession by the Sulphurous Demons from Hell of my sweet and dreamy youngest is a trifecta of ear infection, standard head cold, and teething. Two nights ago we also added repeated vomiting, but I think that was mostly due to tummy upset from all the injested snot. My poor, poor baby.

It is made all the harder by how frustrating it to deal with a screaming and miserable child. And the not sleeping thing, that sucks too. It doesn't help that I have virtually NO RIGHT to get put out with my Pearl because, not only is she SICK, but as the perfectest and sweetest baby in the world she has oodles of mandatory crying time to make up. Crusty mama... poor, poor baby.

On a happier note, we have entered into an all new era with LaLa even faster that I had hoped... last night when I asked her what her favorite part of the day was, her answer was "ummmm.... tsk, CoolCool." The translation? Cool School. Down the street a couple of kids have decided to run this Cool School thing for the summer. It costs a buck a kid and lasts for one hour once a week. They learn about stuff, do a craft and have a snack. Not one crapping pony in sight. They don't really take two year olds but they like LaLa so....shhhh. The plan was for me to do my grocery shopping in that one hour. Hasn't worked yet but I love to dream.

Mama's of sick kids are boring, have you noticed? All they talk about are the symptoms exibited by the wee sufferer. Enough of the snotpoopbarf. Soooo... here's a thing that Nobody
does occasionally... you ask a question in the comments and I will answer it, within reason. Cause I aint telling you my bra size and stuff like that. Not that I think you care or would ask a thing like that... I'm just sayin'. So, ummm. Ask away!

How odd, I just posted for today, and quess what? It's another Q&A day!

So, let's see, a question... I've been needing a vacation, so here's a good one..

If you could anywhere you wanted for a vacation, where would you go and why?

bon said...

Vacation?
if it was just myself or Dadguy and myself? I'd pick a tour of Europe to see all the history and art stuff... poor Dadguy!

If it was a family vacation? That'sa NO BRAINER! Disneyland, WOOOOOOOO! As a matter of fact that's where we are going next year as Birdie is happy to tell you, and any stray individual from off the street as well.

If you could have a "do over" for any part of your life - what would you do differently and why?

bon said...

That's a tough one... my worst mistakes have ended up with me here, right now. There isn't anything that I can think of that I would swap for my right here right now (I'm talking OVERALL, not the "right now" that finds me with a sick and screaming baby, my jammie-wearing butt parked in front of the computer at noon) I doubt very seriously that I would have held out for Dadguy to be ready for marriage. I'm a little over seven years his senior.

While I don't actually regret them? Maybe I would refrain from the tattoo's, 'cause now I have to explain to my daughters why I have them but they should not... nor will they while they live in this house. Yeah...I'd do that different. Maybe.

Amber said...

I'm feeling Pearl's pain. Literally. I've got an ear infection. I thought I was old enough to not get them anymore- and I can't remember the last time I had one (my mom says I was probably 3) but man these suckers HURT!! Poor baby!

Describe your first date with dadguy.

DadGuy said...

Oh man, I could get into all sorts of trouble with an open ended Q/A session like this. But I'll be nice. I can check your bra size at home anyhow.

If you could have any kind of car, what kind would it be?

bon said...

Amber- the short version is that I met him at the Homecoming of one of my mission companions... we talked about how much dating sucked. a month later and I still couldn't get him out of my head so I asked my friend for his phone # and asked him out to my Christmas work party. I came down with Strep the day of the party, so he showed up at my house with a flower and a card. He stayed for four hours and we talked... and talked and talked.

We both new we had found the "One" before we had ever kissed.

Dadguy- You are sooo nonny! I think I'd take a Pick-up at this point in my life...King Cab so the girls could party too!

Nobody said...

I so badly want a king cab pickup. It would be so much more handy than what I drive now.

jd said...

This is so fun to read!!! I hope when I copy you you won't roll your eyes and say " That is sooo, last week" LOL

Ok My question is....

What do you us spray "bad" smells out of your bathroom or Stanky places in your house?? I would like Brand and scent please :)

bon said...

Hmmm, fact is I rarely bust with the stink-pretties. Dadguy has just informed me that it WOULD BE NICE for our bathroom as it has no fan. Now what did I do with that shopping list?

Dadguy has all kinds of allergies and I am pretty sensitive to perfumes (thanks Ma). Get this... you have NEVER met two people with more sensitive noses, sniffers like bloodhounds I tell ya! Those bottles and cans of stuff only sit on top of a scent, like a distraction or something... only it doesn't distract me, it just bugs. I'm a window opener. We live at the mouth of a canyon that is famous for it's whipping winds so that usually does the trick.

That said... for emergency purposes we have that "Totally Toddler" stuff that I use as a stain preventer/remover, but it can be used as a stink-cover. I may have used it once for that since Pearl was born. Febreze extra strength for the "potty-training oopsies," that is just now being put back into circulation. Also the gigantor can of Lysol in the Crisp Linen scent. I use that for the cleaning purposes but the propaganda on the front says that it Eliminates Odors.

In the winter time there is one thing that I lovelovelove, it's the Wallflowers from... a store in the mall. Bath and Body? Something. They have this creamy nutmeg and cinnamon roll smells that are amazing!

gingerstory said...

If you had $1000 dollars to spend on you and only you, (no ponies for Lala or family Disneyland trips) what would you spend it on? :)

Mama D said...

Hmmm... the pressure. It's late. I should be in bed. So should you. Poor Bon and Pearl! Don't feel bad about being cranky. From what I can tell babies are very understanding!

I keep wanting to ask smart @ss questions like: Who's your favorite person from Canada or If you could go to Canada who would you most like to visit. Baahaa ha!

But really...

What was the most bad@ss thing you did when you were in high school?

bon said...

Gingerstory- hmmm, I wonder if I could get Lasik for a grand. Or maybe I'd take that $$ and visit a certain smart @ss in Canada! Now that I'm onna role, I would be Uberfrugal with my $$ and find a way to go to Canada AND then to Baltimore this fall when t'Amy is back in the States... dream a little dreeeeam!...

Mama D- I think it would have to be the time I stayed up for three days straight with only a coffee assist. At the end I peirced my own nose with a needle, some ice and a carrot. This is even harder than it sounds because the very last inside membrane of your nose is TOUGH! Keep in mind also that this is Smalltown, NM in 1986. Sadly, there are no pix of me with the nosering. My parents had less than NO appreciation for it and I was camera-shy to boot!

Nobody said...

Did you go to college?

bon said...

Yep...no degree though. Of course, like it matters anyway. I was going for a BAFA emphasis in painting. IS there a more useless degree to obtain? Double pathetic is the fact that University art classes killed my enjoyment of art.

DadGuy said...

Weren't you like 15 credits away from graduating as well?

bon said...

YYYyyyeah... maybe as many credits as 18 left. I said I went to College, I never said I was smart.

Becky..Absent Minded Housewife said...

My bra size is 32B at the moment.

Just thought I'd let you know.

the Dread Pirate Rackham said...

OK, I'll bite...

If you could change anything, what would be first on the list?

bon said...

If I could change ANYTHING? Like the Space Time Continuum, World Peace and the like? Or do you just mean would I change it so I have perky boobs again... what am I saying? I have NEVER had perky boobs!

by the way... I ran into Taylor Pope via Classmates.com. He's got two kids... and one of 'em is a TEENAGER! (thirteen years old... but still!). Wasn't it frome old Popey that we got Fred the Car Lizard?

the Dread Pirate Rackham said...

popey the popester? The hell you say - a teen-ager? Wow! Say HI from me please!

I have a strong sense that Fred the Car Lizard was mine, purchased on a whim from a cheepstore, like 7-11 or something. I have been proven wrong before, I may be hallucinating.

You didn't answer my question, missy -- nice try...

bon said...

Wha??? didn't answer yer question? I surely DID! I covered all my crappin' bases... didn't I?

Yeah... You did buy YOUR Fredd-o from a cheep-o store because he so closely resembled the Pope's lizard-o... but first we kidnapped the original Fred and held him fer ransom for an unspecified time. I kind of remember leaving a ransom note and him not having a sense of humor about it.


...and I'd take some perky boobs... thanks!
