"new math"

"the green mustache" + wheezy cough + baby = amoxicillin and albuterol

amoxicillin + rash = ER trip (sorry to repeat myself, but I'm saving you time) - amoxicillin + benadryl + prednisone = experiment in modern pediatric medicine ==> terribly irritable, excitable, unconsolable, pitiful, fussy, restless, complaining, "please be still and quiet for just a few minutes!" baby

acid reflux + bedtime + mommy = insufficient sleep

insufficient sleep + terribly irritable, excitable, unconsolable, pitiful, fussy, restless, complaining, "please be still and quiet for just a few minutes!" baby = exasperate mommy wishing the daddy would "just hurry the crap home" and give me a break



So, do I go to the store and get the necessities we need to make it through the night? Or do I force some tears and call The Mighty Hunter and BEG him to stop for me.



I think I'll be eating some underbaked, gooey chocolate chip cookies tonight.

I'm just sayin'

Based on my experience with babies and albuteral...The Mighty Hunter might prefer to do all out-of-house chores. It used to make Magnuts insane...I feel for yah!
