A few years ago my youngest had to get an enema at childrens hospital. He thought the tube up his butt was hilarious. The diaper was an indignity he was very upset about. He tried to rip it off, despite the liquid diarrhea and thankfully Mrloves2learn got him to the toilet where he happily shit his brains out for 5 min. How is that for a story?
Let me start from the beginning. This was the day I hit the armored car, the police came and did not give me a ticket due to icy roads and in fact transported me (in the back of their squad car, checking for weapons first) to my psychiatrist appointment. How is that for service? And gave me their business cards in case my husband could not pick me up and said to call and they would transport me back to my car.
Soooo, I was on my way to the car shop, hubs had delivered me back to my car and was riding with the tow truck driver, Tony. Tony is a dad, this is relevant. Anyhoo, I’m in the tow truck with Tony and get a somewhat frantic call from hubs.
He picked youngest up from my parents house and he is now frantically screaming bloody murder that his tummy hurts.
Tony heard this all on speaker and Tony and I made the executive decision that hubs should just take youngest straight to childrens hospital.
Apparently when you bring a 3 year old in screaming bloody murder you miraculously get a room instantly and are seen right away. 🤔
So I was freaaaaaking out in Tony’s tow truck. Trying my best (not succeeding) not to cry because I was so worried. Tony is trying to talk me down telling me stories about his 3 year old daughter and how she was screaming one time and was fine.
So they get youngest into x-ray and he is literally full of shit. 😂 Like filled to the gills with excrement and gas on top of that. If you knew this child you would know how apropos this is…
So the determined solution is said enema in which a nurse stuck a tube of pink fluid up youngest’s butt while he laughed his head off. Then came the infamous diaper, thank goodness for a bathroom. I was at the car repair shop living for every update.
We all finally made it home in one piece (I’d had to call our amazing neighbor to grab oldest off the bus, same bus as her son and she did).
All 4 of us are finally home so we are all curious to know how youngest’s enema was. 😂
3 year old youngest recounted that the lady stuck a tube up his bum, which tickled. Insert 3 year old hysterical laughter.
And he, with great indignation, recounted how that nurse did not know he DOES NOT WEAR DIAPERS. Thankfully his dad got him to a toilet and he was happy. Day in the life.
#parentinglife that is.
