way back when...

be warned that this post is not for the squeamish... i apologise in advance :)

reading The Jackson Files brings back so many memories for me... reading what Jackson gets up reminds me of all the stuff that my babies did... sigh... they are growing up too fast... i catch myself taking mental pictures of them when my camera isn't handy... a far away look in their eye, that special smile... the belly laugh... bath time... it all goes too fast...

anyway i remembered a not so decent incident but highly entertaining... I can't even remember which one of my kids it was but he was sick, very sick, had a very high fever, you know that fever they get at 2 am... when nobody else is around and you are on the verge of hysteria... it was a night like that... he was about 3 years old... and a three year old is quite strong let me tell you... the only solution for a very high fever, in the middle of the night is a suppository... yes i know it's gross but lemme tell you it's a miracle to have those around... they work almost instantly... sorry I'm getting side tracked... so there i was, divorced and alone with a very sick child... trying to deposit the loot in the little hole... hehe... with a difficult, kicking child... holding his legs in my one hand (by the ankles) while pushing his legs back... I KNOW... gross... but desperate times you know... he saw what i was about to do and having had experienced this procedure before... he screamed....

nooooooooooo mommyyyyyyyyyy not the bullet!!!!

The Jackson Files said...

Bwhahahaha...that is very funny.

I know this is an odd thing to say, but I ADORE SUPPOSITORIES (for Jackson, not me). They are the business at getting rid of temps and minor illnesses, so I never leave home without them. That and a burn shield. I am a bit paranoid.

btw. I couldn't see the photo you left in my comments yesterday, please send the url again...please, please.

Poor little tyke.

My mother just loved sticking stuff up my ass. It's a wonder that I'm not gay.

Miss P said...

Seriously, remember this and save it..... for the 21st birthday party!
My parents kept a scrapbook of all the funny things I said and all the funny photos of when I was a kid, and I STILL love looking through it.
Although, my 21st was full of slightly embarrassing moments..
Pass on the embarrssment I feel! Keep it!
