Calling Nurse Ann
Here are a few good tips in being a caring care-giver:
1) Stock plenty of juices and clear liquids. Dehydration can be such a bitch. Juice is pretty explanatory. But clear liquids are a bit tricky. They never define it do they so I always stock plenty of bottled water, and Sprite for the sickies. I also find that stocking Vodka and Tequila for my clear liquids help immensely. Even as easy going and bubbly as I am are strained dealing with sick people for an extended time so when the constant whining turns my thoughts from how sweet and precious the boys are and how warm and wonderful Pookie is to thoughts of gagging the whiny little snotrags and strangling the big Puss that spawned them in his sleep, I just take me a little nip of my special clear liquids and I am as right as rain once more.
2) Slather them up with Vicks. Sure it stinks but why should I suffer alone.
3) Make sure that your vibe's batteries are charged. Sickness plays hell with Pookies libido and besides who wants to give a man a blowjob when he is slathered in Vicks. It not only smells bad but leaves one hell of a bad taste in your mouth. (Maybe that is why I have been a little cranky.)
4) NyQuil is a mommys best helper. The generic is for shit (Take my word for it. My momma in the trailer park tried it and it didn't do squat.) but the real stuff is the shit. Knocks the little buggers right off to dreamland.
Whoopsy there goes the boys little bell again. I guess that it is time for all of us to have some more clear liquids. Oooh well, Ta-Ta's for now.
