Last Week Was a Total Jerk. Good Riddance!

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Last week was not my favorite. I was still trying to kick The Cough and get my energy back. Then out of no where, The Youngster got hit with a stomach virus. And by hit, I mean hit harrrrrd. Clobbered, actually. He ended up not being able to keep Gatorade or even water down.  This lead to his being very dehydrated. We had to go straight to the ER from his pediatrician’s office — in an ambulance.

The IV fluids helped, but he was in such bad shape that the doctors admitted him to the hospital, where we stayed for two nights.

Yeah. Like I said, not my favorite.

Oh, and then there was the part where my husband woke up like dis: high fever and severe body aches.

I was practically tripping over myself trying to take care of both my homies before the ER thing happened. It was a mess, and I’m glad it’s behind us. Now I’m happy to report that the household is healthy and back on the good foot. To celebrate, how about a #giveaway?

Recently, The Youngster has been talking more about music. Pop music. He’s been seeing the commercial for the new “Kidz Bop 27” CD on television and singing along with a few of the song clips. It’s adorable. But it’s also, like, wait… are you growing up on me?

Honestly, the whole kidz music thing was barely in my periphery until maybe the last month. My son basically listens to whatever we listen to, and that can range from Jimmy Cliff and the tUnE-yArDs to Sia and Sam Smith. But I decided to give the Kidz a listen, and I’m totally into it. Catchy ditties, no parental-advisory lyric concerns — what’s not to like? Plus, them kidz can belt! Some of these young’uns sound better than your fave pop star.

So, good news: One of you can also get in on the fun with us. We’re giving away one free copy of the brand new “Kidz Bop 27” CD. And all you have to do is share a song lyric that you’ve discovered you got terribly wrong. Fun!

The winner will be announced next week.

    Another One Bites the Dust — I thought it was Another One Bites the Doctor (doctaahhhhh). I still hear that sometimes.

    Taylor Swift’s Blank Space … says “got a long list of ex-lovers”. I thought she said “star-crossed lovers”

    I think like the rest of the word, I thought Taylor Swift was singing about Starbucks Lovers in her Blank Space song instead of “long list of ex-lovers.”

    I swear Taylor Swift sings about Starbucks lovers in her song Blank Space, but I don’t actually know what the words actually are.
