Let me start by saying, "Having kids is great."
Braxton is in Pre-school from 9-12 MWF. So I try and get Merrick in the hourly care at the same times so I have a few hours to get either beading in, or - with Christmas coming - shopping/present wrapping done. It is normally a good thing. But now and then they both get sick.....with the same thing. This weekend it was wicked diarreah. Taking them to the Dr. is not something I would do for this, but we had a follow up apt. from when they had Croup last month. So, since we were there, I mentioned - "They have had diarreah since Friday"
Dr. - "Oh - Friday?! Lets get a stool sample so we can make sure its not anything serious."
I like our Doctor - she is very thorough. But really? A stool sample?!
What does that mean I have to do?
So - we went to the LAB and got 2 little jars (one for each boy) and were sent home to wait. When the time came - Merrill was there for Braxton with a little cup - all ready to catch the pay load. I am glad he didn't barf all over it......because then we would have had to try again...tomorrow. Merrick was easier - just had to scoop it out of the diaper.
Like I said - "Having kids is great"
But let me finish by saying - "Having Merrill there to do the DIRTY work is Best!"(This is not OUR stool sample - I found the picture on the Internet. If you want - comment - and I will take a picture of Braxton's and post it later...but only if you are really really lucky!)
