The best nurse ever

By Mir
September 15, 2010

I had a cold, and it went away, and then it came back, because I am the Amazing Immune System Free Lady! Step right up and watch me get sick from everything! You’d think I spend my free time licking grocery cart handles, or something.

Anyway, today is a busy day AND I feel like crud, so instead of eating lunch I took a nap (hooray for being self-employed), and then I decided to just stay in bed with my laptop.

Monkey got home from school and was very concerned, and I assured him I’m fine, I’m just sort of resting because my head is full of snot. He patted my arm and stroked my hair and told me he’ll take extra good care of me.

Then he left the room for a minute and came back in declaring, “I lost a tooth at school today!” With a raisin stuck to one of his front teeth (blacking it out).

I feel better already!

    Well, there is that saying about laughter being the best medicine!

  3. pam

    Awww… that boy!!!

  4. Beachgal

    What a sweetheart. I wanna give him a hug. Hope you feel better.

  5. dad

    You gotta love that kid!

  6. Anna Marie

    Feel better soon! I love that boy of yours.

    How did I catch your cold all of the way in Missouri?

    My kids really come through when I’m sick too. They can be fighting and whiny, but if I’m laid up they calm themselves down, quietly offer me snuggles, drinks of water, even the very important teddy bear has been brought to me to help me get well.

    Knowing when to tell a lie thingie comes in very handy. Kudos Monkey.

    Heh. Gotta love that Monkey! Too cute. Hope you feel better soon :)

    Okay, I almost horked when you mentioned licking grocery cart handles. But then Monkey made me all better too. Love that kid.

    Sigh. I need a Monkey of my own. What a sweet, funny kid!

    If you get a lot of colds, try taking more vitamin D. I watch my gandkids and every Sept. I would get sick for a month at least. I started taking extra vitamin D and for the first time I didn’t get sick, even though they did. It is worth trying.

    Ewwwww. . .licking grocery cart handles. Shivering with disgust over here.

  15. Aimee

    Ugh… I’m with Sara and Shan. The very thought of licking a grocery cart handle makes me want to hurl. Another reason to love my neighborhood Trader Joes, where they provide handi-wipes outside the store right next to the carts, so I can wipe the handle before I touch it.

    In raisin-tooth news… yay, Monkey! I know I’ve never met him, but I love that kid. :)

    Can I borrow your nurse next time I’m sick? ;-)

  17. Rose

    Hahaha, well they do say laughter is good for your health?!

    Is it The Chest Cold That Never Ends sponsored by Mucinex? Because I am on my third round of that cold at the moment and I’m trying to figure out how to break up with that bad boy for good. Hope you feel better soon, dearie.
