Family Circus

No one can drive us crazy unless we give them the keys. - Doug Horton


Our Guest

Most folks have family or friends over to visit for the Easter weekend. Not too many unexpected guests. Rotavirus walked in the front door of our home, unannounced, dropped his bags next to Rosie's bed, and made himself right at home. His friends, Barfosaurus and The Runs showed up Monday. Unfortunately, they didn't just stay for the Easter holiday. And they only like Rosie. They LOVE Rosie. The pediatrician called in prescription suppositories today. The pharmacist says: "They'll make her very drowsy." I told the pharmacist: "Any change from the whining/moaning/screaming/barfing child who's taken to creating exploding diapers will be a welcome change!"

I can say that I know one thing for certain: Pergo floors advertise that you can quite simply wipe up any 'spill'. Well, I've wiped up entire toddler meals that have 'spilled' from my 2 year old's stomach. What a Godsend!
