I've not had the chance to let my melodic voice ring out into the internet this week. It's been a real loss for all of you, I'm sure.
Our baby has a double ear, eye infection and a cold. She's currently on an antibiotic that her pediatrician mentioned "might give her some loose stools."
What she apparently meant was that I should have the National Guard on standby, because what would occur in her tiny pants would be nothing short of catastrophic. Seriously, I'm expecting my reassuring call from Obama at any moment.
She is understandably clingy. What I don't understand is why while clinging to me she's also slapping at my face and digging into my flesh with her nails. If you look at her nails, they seem like these dainty and precious little specks. When they are digging into your face they feel like the talons of a monstrous animal. How does that happen?
She had also finally slept through the night the week prior to getting sick, and now she's gone back to her old nightly party girl shenanigans. I swear it is so much worse to go back to not sleeping through the night once you've had a taste of the wonders of solid REM cycles again. Now I'm back to this weird and short lived deep sleep where I dream about odd things like David Arquette going to the mall with me. It's left me wondering if there might be some sort of baby Ambien.
No one panic, I'm not feeding my baby Ambien. Unless I find out there is baby Ambien. Just kidding. No, I'm not.
Also, in 3 weeks we will be moving 1,000 miles away.
Other than that things are pretty smooth.
I've decided I need some upbeat music to perk things up. Right now I'm either listening to Jewel's lullaby CD in the car to soothe the baby, or I'm listening to Adele. The weather outside is gloomy and foggy and icky and crappy and Scurvy inducing. The combo of the music and the weather is a bit much. This hit me yesterday when I noticed I was driving while also laying my head on the steering wheel.
So anyone have ideas of happier music for me? And nothing by rappers who include phrases like bend over girl or lick my lollipop or anything. Although, if it's Justin Timberlake talking dirty, I'll take it.
