Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

Please Observe a Moment of Silence...

... for my little Mack Attack's (not so) dearly departed tonsils and adenoids. May they be safely and hygienically disposed of in a proper medical waste incinerator in peace.

ETA: Wow. We're back already. I thought this would be an all-day thing, but here we are all tucked into bed watching SpongeBob. Well, she's tucked. I'm tucking. And fussing. And shoving meds down her throat. And fussing some more. Basically doing the Momma Thing. Plus, cartoons? BONUS.

SpongeBob? Funny stuff.

Eager... Before

I was shocked-- shocked!-- to discover they can flavor the knock-you-out-in-two-seconds-FLAT gas. Of course, the obvious choice today was bubble gum. I checked it out, you know, for scientific purposes. VERY cool. I personally think adults get the shaft with the whole put-the-IV-in-before-they-knock-you-out thing.

Aaaw... After

Despite the fact that someone just cut overlarge masses of lymphoid tissue out of her throat, she's more concerned about the killer IV binding. "Hey... why is there BLOOD in the tube?!..."


This is TGIM "helping." Totally "paying attention." Really "being there" for his daughter. (Sudoku. It's a sickness, y'all.)

We toast them with ice cream, clinking our spoons together. Requiescat en pace (Latin for "No school for a week")

Moment observed!

Now let the offerings of ice-cream to the Spirit of Painlessness commence.

Awwww, look at the totally cute smiling face before ....... she's a brave girl. I was supposed to have my tonsils out when I was a kid but I chickened out. Now they've just shriveled up I think.

Sending you get well vibes Mack!!

In my limited experience (3 babies delivered the good old fashioned way, plus watching my little one with the tonsils) the IV is the worst part. And I had one SPURT blood after they took it out. EEK! So glad all is well at the Cat House (hahaha).

TGIM is pretty. Not just his curls. And I am loving his outfit. (Clothing ensemble? What do men call it?)

Glad little girl Mack is doing well. Getting full-fledged Momma Fussing is always the best part of recovery.

It's TOTALLY a sickness! I carry a book of Sudoku puzzles in my purse, for any spare moment (of which there are few).

"Outfit"? "Clothing ensemble"? Yeah, men call it that. When they're Richard Simmons.

Guys call what he's wearing "clothes".

Oh, and "pretty"? Again, Richard Simmons.

Yeah, Nilbo's just pouting because I called TGIM pretty. Now that he's "Kelly's Nilbo", he's got this jealousy thing going on...

Feel better little one!
