No, I love YOU, man

Today is the day of the best nap ever. The Mini has been sleeping since about 11:30ish, passed out cold. Ahh if only every day could be like this.

Granted, he’s drunk on chloral hydrate, but you know, I’ll take what I can get.

The Mini had a CT scan done this morning, hence the reason for the drugs. I mean, sure, if this would make him nap like this every day, I might be inclined to score some on the street, but alas, drugging your child is what they call “frowned upon” by CPS. So we try to tire him out the old fashioned way. With whiskey.

Speaking of drunk. They went over all of the standard “we’re giving your child a sedative” protocol. What to expect, how he would act. And for the most part, they don’t realize that my child does not display typical baby mannerisms. He’s generally a pretty dry kid and getting him to laugh, well, even Carlin would be getting heckled for his attempts. When they woke him up, he displayed the typical signs, which are that of what you’d expect from a hungover college student. But when he was finally fed and satiated, he turned into what I think is a glimpse of what he actually will be like as a drunk college student. He laughed at nothing. He hooted and hollered in the back seat on the way home. It was almost as if he was looking at himself in the mirror back there, talking to himself. “Are you going to listen to me? Are you gonna listen to me? Areyougonnalistentome?”

He’s completely fine, but man, talk about a belligerent drunk.

“You shut your mouth when you’re talking to me!”

Since you are going to make me ask, what prompted the CT?

I’m glad he’s fine, but I thinking getting his head checked for a humor gland is a little extreme, no?

Hen-Bug probably would have been the same way, except they wouldn’t let us feed him much before the scan so he woke up hungry and mad, mad, mad. He had trouble taking the bottle, too, which made him even more mad. And clumsy.

Watch out, pretty soon he’s going to tell you he’s “sotally tober ma! I swear!”

haha, the idea of a drunk baby is hysterical.

Oh sheesh. What a crack-up in an unsettling my kid is on sedatives sort of way.

Now I wonder what kind of drunk my kids will be. I hope decent ones.

See, I think you’ve performed a useful test. You know how he’s going to be when he’s drunk, ergo you’ll be able to relax easier in the college years – Mini won’t be getting tattooed at a dodgy dive in Miami while drunk, he’ll be the one doing the keg stands.

Useful info.
