So here we have, Pinky and The Mouth volume 2. If you do not know Pinky and The Mouth please go here, really. I’ll wait.
We sent Miss Pinky back to school today (do you hear the choirs of angels singing Hallelujah? No, that’s just in my head…okay then)
3 days being cooped up in the house with Mama and The Mouth, not so much fun for social butterfly girl.
I go to pick her up this afternoon to have Ms. K, her teacher, tell me… “Wow, Pinky (aka Princess) was quite the chatterbox today.”
Me, in a shocked tone, “No, really? I can’t imagine that”
Yeah, I wasn’t foolin’ anybody.
So, we’re packed, we’re in the car, movie’s on and we’re toolin’ down the highway.
I hear this: “Mom, I have to tee tee”
Me: “of course you do honey, because we’ve been on the road for 10minutes of our 4 1/2 hour trip” Huge eye roll here.
Pull over, find a gas station unload both kids, secure vehicle.. yada yada yada…
Pick up The Mouth and what do I see!!!
yep, you guessed it you brilliant Sherlock Holmes reader, you! Green goopy gunk in his eyes!! ARRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
And here I thought we were home free. Damn.
Frantic call to Pediatrician goddess.
All the while muttering, please don’t make me have to hunt down a pharmacy in (destination city), please, please, please.
Hallelujah! There’s that chorus of angels again!!
Mouth can use Pinky’s drops. Woo Hoo!
So, now all I have to do is keep the 1 year old from touching the 4 year old or anyone else… for a day or so. Yep, that’ll be a breeze.
I did learn a fantabulous trick for eye drop application for kids (and squeamish adults)
Have them lie flat on their back and close their eyes. Place one drop in the inner corner of the eye, think tear duct, when they open their eyes… the drops just well into their eyes… no problems! It’s fabulous, takes all the hassle out! Woo Hoo!
So.. at the end of this post… what have we learned?
A) my kids’ monikers need to be switched:
Monkey is now Pinky and Princess is now The Mouth! LOL.
B) easy peasy solution for eye drop application
Now, aren’t you glad you came by today.
Stay tuned… after I play Cinderella at mom’s house tomorrow I’m posting the first evah: Royal Banana Awards for blog yumminess.
Do I have you panting with excitement and anticipation?
Well, come back anyways
