This is what sick looks like

Men are wimps when it comes to being sick.  Every cough will kill them, every sore throat maim their manhood, and every tummy ache sends them straight to the couch for some immediate TV and self-loving.  Wait, not that kind.  Get your mind out tha gutter.

And they learn early.

Sacha was sick on Friday.  All he wanted was to watch The Lion King (or "Grand Kitty Kah") and lay on the couch with his two friends, Chatters and Chelsea.  And since I am inclined, as a mom, to avoid whining from those of feeble tummies (who had already puked all over me and himself and the floor of Walmart), I let him.

This is how sick looks

**Turned out he had myringitis, an inflammation of the eardrum, which causes blisters to form on said drum and then they pop.  And seeing how this affects the middle ear, his sense of balance was wacked out, which made him puke no less than 3 times after that blister popped.  Coolio.  Oh, and it is common for blood to trickle out of the ear when this happens.  How's THAT for parenting funsies?!


  1. Ugh! Poor wee boy ... and especially poor maman!

  2. OMG that's super cute. Hands behind the head. lol.

  3. That is a fabulous picture! Little king of the couch! (and he looks so grown up!)
    Hope he's feeling better soon (and you get some reprieve!)

  4. Holy moly that sounds terrible. Poor little guy.

    That picture is the cutest thing ever. So sweet and what a sweet mama for taking care of him so well.

  5. I love that his "little friends" get to watch too.

    Just the description of that bug (just the name even!) would have totally freaked me out. I hope he gets better soon ... and I'm glad he is milking it for all it is worth. ;)

  6. You are so right about men/boys when they are sick! I love how his animal are hanging with him, too cute. Hope he feels better soon!

  7. I'm pretty sure this is one of the cutest things I've ever seen! He's totally trying to be the lord of the castle...complete with soft, fuzzy blanket and stuffed animal-friends!! Awesome!!

  8. You might as well humour them, because the one time you don't, it will turn out to be bubonic plague complicated by a compound fracture.

  9. MAh Gah is Sasha ever getting big! Though, I bet he's still tiny! ;) Such a cute picture!

    And men? TOTAL whimps!! LOL
