It starts young-all guys think about

MD and I were both hanging out in the bathroom talking tonight while Jamie was taking his (green/blue colored) bath and I looked over and commented on the fact that he was aiming the water from his watering can at his penis. And then that he was poking and squishing it (the penis, not the watering can), and MD jokingly accused me of being fixated on Jamie’s penis. (Actually, I’m just trying to get so comfortable saying "penis" that it comes out just like any other word.) I shot back that it was Jamie and not me that was fixated, I was just commenting. Then we both look over again and he’s holding a foam "U" upside down, and I realized, "He’s trying to HANG IT off his penis!" And of course we both completely lost it. I’m still laughing a little.


The patient is recovering fairly well, although we were pretty worried about his fluid intake on Thursday and even as late as this morning his morning diaper wasn’t as full as it should have been but he appears to be drinking like normal and is at least putting out the usual number of wet and dirty dipes. But add in the fact that he’s cutting his two-year molars and that he is, well, TWO, and it’s been tantrum central around here. We’re both still pooped and the only reason I’m up so late is because his Highness didn’t drift off until ten pm. Yep, 10. Thursday it was 11. That was after three hours of on-again, off-again screaming. He slept so late in the hospital and on Weds, clocking in 12 hours both nights, that he’s completely off schedule. Md just commented that it’s been a really long week, and I definitely feel like even though we didn’t work at our actual offices much this week, it’s been a long, hard work week here at home. Our house may look like we’re total slackers but I’d say about 97% of our energy has gone to the recovering little dictator these past few days and that is as it should be.

As for me, I should be able to breathe again at work as of Weds., so maybe I’ll be able to squeeze in a few posts this week. For now, I’m off to bed. Sleep tight.

    Yea but you gotta realize little boys love the fact that they have a built-in bathtime comedy routine.

    you should definitely watch the King of the Hill episode where Peggy is subbing in for the sex-ed teacher and can’t make herself say penis. pure unadulturated comedy.

    PENIS! Or you could call it what my friend’s parents called it: dilly-weed.

    I’m so glad your little highness is recuperating well. You’re doing so well.
