Sauced. Juiced. Laced. Glazed. Tipsy. Three sheets to the wind.
Ok, I don't know where that last one came from, but it works, I guess.
I'm sorry, my sweet baby, that you're now high and acting rather strangely.
Our day started like this:
We woke up (usually how we begin most mornings).
Baby Blue has a doctor's appointment... this is her regular well-baby visit, but we were going to talk to him about how she's been feeling as well.
We are getting ready to go soon, and Baby Blue walks out of the kitchen holding an EMPTY bottle of Children's Tylenol Plus Cold!!
Where did she ever manage to get this from and how did she open it??? I was speechless.
Once I regained some composure, I asked if she drank it and she simply said, "Yes."
We need to be at the doctors office soon, so we pack up and head over a little early. They check her out, everything seems fine... acting her normal self, and screaming when they try to touch her... yep, she's fine. We call Poison Control as well. They go through all the ingredients listed, figure out how much she took, and continue with the questions. She now is falling asleep in the car, but wakes up soon and still knows who we are, yep, she's fine. A little drowsy, but fine.
Poison Control reassures me that she will be drowsy from the cold medication, since she took well over a 24 hour dose in one foul swoop, but as long as she's playing fine... and she is... then she's ok.
Nap time rolls around and she plays in her bed through the entire 2 hours in her room. Never falls asleep. Now, she's acting strangely.
Wrestling the cat and saying, "Ow, Ow" as the cat paws at Baby Blue's head... but they continue on. She'll stand in the middle of the hallway in a trance and then get a silly grin across her face. She stops and stares. Walks and falls. Acts numb to any circumstance, and walks around making strange noises and gestures. I know she'll be fine. But if anyone knows how to sober up a kid... let me know. Right now, I've got her on a carb load.
Hopefully she remembers this in her more mature years, and stays away from the sauce!
