baby seals are cute

look at this picture of a baby seal:

holycrapomgadorable right?

(of course while i was googling "baby seals" & getting my cute fix, i ran across several pictures of baby seals being clubbed & immediately wanted to cry. omg?! who DOES that?! i had no idea...i am legit, sad right now. & confused. ::sad face::)

ok- so that seal is really cute? all things baby seals = cute. it's a fact.
so if someone was like, "oh, your child reminds me of a baby seal!" one would think that = my child's cuteness rivals that of an infant seal. kick ass. so awesome.

but alas. it does not. because what they're trying to tell you is, "omg- when baby seals bark & make that weird noise it's really cute- but now your kid is doing that & it sounds straight up awful..."

so yeah. brynn = a baby seal. because she's barking like one.

all night. all morning. all day. yay.

so for the 2nd time in less than a week (we took a pedi trip last week thanks to another yeast rash) my youngest & i got to spend some time bonding @ the pedi's office.

after the receptionist performed the usual routine: take my card. look @ insurance coverage info. cringe & shoot me a look of pity ($3k deductible here people). collect my co-pay. send me on my way.

we saw the nice lady doc & she validated me bring my child in by dx'ing her with croup & an ear infection (the joys). she prescribed an oral steroid & an rx for the ear & told me to waste water (with good reason) by running my shower & blah blah blah.

& to thank me for my concern & prompt pedi trip- my child let me dress her & then sat as far away from me as she could in an attempt to insure that i would try to steal any of her fruit snacks:

Croup + an ear infection.

such is love.

so yes. croup & an ear infection. this explains the semi-fevered child that clung to me for the majority of last evening whilst barking in my ear & splattering my face with spit.

spit that no doubt held quite a bit of germs because now my throat feels scratchy.

poor kid. but thanks to modern medicine & deep pockets (lol, who am i kidding?) she should be back to her old self within a few days.

and to end this on another cute note- here's another baby seal:

not as cute as a baby sloth- but close.
Pin It!

Hopefully Brynn is feeling better soon too....and BTW she would have to run from me.....because Im always stealing some fruit snacks!

Ahahaha, I can't believe the way you related baby seals to your baby. You rock!

I think anything "baby" is cute!! I mean how can it not be?? ;)

Hope Brynn feels better soon.

Also, speaking of sloths: please tell me you saw Ellen Degeneres' video of when she had Kristen Bell on her show (this week). Turns out she LOVES sloths, too. and the video is HILARIOUS. I watched it twice and cried both times. You gotta watch it! :)

Hope Brynn feels better soon. For some reason that part about her sitting far away from you, coupled with the picture totally made me crack up!
