Sick, With a Side of Sick.

Hi! Noah here.

IMG_1402

SO.  I heard you heard I was sick.

IMG_1450

It was a dark time in my life.

IMG_1493

I was so ill that there was very little that I wanted in the universe. You would think that would make me considered low-maintenance, right?

IMG_1453

But no – The Servant Who Calls Herself Mommy picked that very week to go ahead and assume that I wanted all sorts of extra-curricular activities and treats!  It was exhausting.

IMG_1596

That’s right – the one time I don’t desire it with all my heart and you’re going to hold me down and force me to take medicine?

IMG_1562

No thanks.

IMG_1448

And the doctor’s office. When I can’t even taste the goodness of the suckers, you’re going to drag me in, over and over?

IMG_1437

And I don’t want to even talk about that emergency room visit. Why do they make the furniture so colorful if I’m not allowed to at least try it?

IMG_1559

I just think I should get a little compassion around here.

IMG_1613

Just because I want to ask, “Can I have more of that (insert food here) that I’m going to refuse to eat?” 56 times a day, you want to get frustrated?

IMG_1552

(How about now? That looks tasty!)

IMG_1421

(How about now?)

IMG_1422

But the greatest irony of when I don’t feel good is that you’re going to pick THAT moment to shove a metal rod up my butt. It’s confounding!

IMG_1551

But it’s okay – you know how you unthinkingly stick things in your mouth when I give you too much to carry?  Yeah, I totally saw you do that.

IMG_1467

But I’m writing to you, internet – not The Servant.  And you’re here to get the inside story.  The Scoop.  The Te’o Truth of the whole thing.  Right?

IMG_1543

Well here it is:  I heard it was going to be Ali’s birthday.  And from my understanding, birthdays were kinda…you know, my thing.

IMG_1451

So I licked a grocery cart.

IMG_1527

It worked, because I got taken to the doctor on her birthday, thereby proving my dominance and ultimate role of Most Important Child.

IMG_1410

But while we were waiting, I heard The Servant Who Calls Herself Mommy tell Ali: “It’s okay, because your party isn’t until Saturday.”

And I panicked.

IMG_1609

But we’re at the doctor now! I’m going to get well too quickly!

IMG_1596

So I licked the exam table, the foot props, the floor, the door handle, and the chair arms.

IMG_1535

The taste of 53 different kid’s germs wasn’t a gentle one on my sensitive palette,

IMG_1564

But it worked.

IMG_1412

The Servant Who Calls Herself Mommy never even saw my saliva touch anything (I’m well-adapted to Covert Licking Warfare, or CLW as we refer to it in the United Toddler’s Union,) and so I added RSV to my Croup that day.

IMG_1466

Now I’m not saying that was fun for me, but you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do, you know?

IMG_1560

And the payoff was that The Servant Who Calls Herself Mommy was so consumed by ME (as she should be) that she took five pictures of Ali’s birthday party.

IMG_1468

Five!!  I am an evil genius.

IMG_1499

She takes more pictures than that of my weekly toe jam harvest!

IMG_1525

And she left the party early to take me back to the doctor, for what had to have been the 736th time of the week.

IMG_1575

It was a precious time that we spent together.

IMG_1477

But I don’t want you to think I wasn’t miserable.

IMG_1456

Oh, I was.

IMG_1531

In fact, the only times I could truly relax that entire week was when The Servant Who Calls Herself Mommy would give me a bath.  And since I spewed every dose of medicine that she [tried to] give me, they happened more often than usual.

IMG_1399

It was so warm…so comforting…so tranquilizing…that it might have had some undesired effects.

Oopsie Poopsie.

IMG_1540

I realized by The Last Sick Bath that The Servant didn’t appreciate my habit of leaving fecal matter in her tub, so I warned her that it was coming.

IMG_1452

But then! She seemed even less appreciative of the fact that I flung poop across the room with my hinder as she whipped me from bath to toilet.

IMG_1462

Some people just can’t be pleased.

IMG_1416

But I recovered to my fullness of self just in time for all of Ali’s birthday celebrations to be over.

IMG_1418

Just the way I like it.

IMG_1404

So next time you have a sister that’s about to steal your spotlight, just call me –

IMG_1591

I can Hook. You. Up.

    I can only imagine if roles were reversed and you had been born first and were the only child until Ali came along. The evil genius would really shine then, Noah!
