I have two babies right now. I know what you’re thinking. Already?! Is that even possible?!
And the answer is, yes. Yes it is.
One baby is very small. And one is a lot bigger. One baby has little baby sneezes and little baby spit ups and the other baby has massive sneezes and a gross cough and a runny nose. Eww. And the big baby has to stay away from the little baby.
I think the big baby is just trying to get out of diaper changes. It’s a really clever plan, really. One I am jealous I didn’t think of first.
The thing is, when big baby woke up Monday morning and his voice sounded weird to me, I was instantly mad.
How could he do this to me?!
I am the patient here! I am the one that just gave birth! I am the one that people should be asking about and helping and being super sweet to! Not you! You’re just…sick. Again. For the second time in 6 weeks!
That’s right. I’m telling you that I was super annoyed with my spouse for being sick. And if you want to know the truth, I was annoyed when he was sick over Christmas too. And I was even more annoyed when he passed it on to me.
Poor thing is sick and all I can think of is — he should’ve been drinking orange juice. And taking vitamins. And not drinking after sick people.
Okay, he probably didn’t drink after a sick person. But still!
So I forced big baby to go to the doctor and they gave him meds. And then I called in reinforcements by way of my mother-in-law because I am scared of taking care of two babies by myself. Also, he is her son and therefore — she owes me.
Doctor says in 24 hours big baby won’t be contagious. And the way I see it — I’ve changed every diaper for 48 hours (well, my mom was here and helped but she’s Team Kate so therefore it counts on my board) so beginning Thursday at 5p — I get 2 days off of diapers.
Because that’s totally how it works, right?!
LOVE you, baby. Get well soon! And I really, really mean that.
