So I will admit it.
I hate to.
I don't like to.
I mean, I have an INFANT!
Had to give up jogging and start swimming.
So there's other medicines I have to take to keep myself working properly.
I decided to purchase some more palatable over-the-counter medicine the other day to assist my being honest with patients and not full of, well, you know.
So I made a fatal mistake.
Now I have made this mistake before and it has resulted in things like this:
Dessitin cups washes (they get rashes too)
Left-over pankcake breakfast served over shag with juice
Pirate raids of leftover pancakes
dipping partially frozen cookie dough in the ice cream before munching away.
This one handled the interrogation well,
seeking comfort in his thumb,
and looking rather pitiful and ignoring the questions.
I must admit, he is a boy with my own heart's desire -
Ice cream in the morning,
candy and chocolate whenever it can be sneaked,
even large gulps of daddy's soda pop.
He definitely has this one right on.
Sitting on the pot and watching TV. He is a boy!
So this day the wonderful strawberry fiber tablet bottle was empty.
So my wife inquired how many the eldest son ate (Bub is his name).
4 to 8 was the deducted reply.
She inquired as to where the rest were.
The little guy (Bud) had some as well as evidenced by the pink drool stains on his shirt.
Some were found in the computer.
The rest, Bub informed us, were cooking in the microwave.
We don't know what the plan was for those, but they were ruined.
The youngest (bud) had eaten 4 grams of fiber in a 30 minute period.
The end result was
having them drink lots of water
Lots of tootles
And I'll spare you the details of the rest of the story.
The moral of this story is...
Physician, protect your medicine.
Always have extra diapers on hand.
If you have kids, go with the powder fiber and keep it in the sugar jar.
Then you will have a psychological draw to taking it,
and your kids will have a psychological aversion to eating sugar.
Enjoy and laugh at the creativity of your kids,
lest you miss the joys of life.
