I just HAVE to tell you this story!! My sweet husband had to give lecture at the hospital the night I had to do prep. (See previous entry to blog.) So, while I was "seatbelted" to my commode, Brenna was kinda on her own. And wanted ice cream. I had managed to yank the ice cream out of the freezer and set it out to soften before I ran back to the bathroom.
Is this too much information?? Oh, well. It's pretty funny!
So, sure enough, Brenna wanted her ice cream and I was in the bathroom. (big surprise.) Brenna called out to me, "Don't worry Mom, I think I can get it!" Pretty soon I hear, "Hey Mom! Look at me! I'm doing it!" To which I called back, "Wow, B, good job." "Hey Mom, come and take a look!" Mmmmmm. "Can't right now, B..." "That's o.k., I'll bring it in there." By now, I could give a rat's patootie as to what she is doing.
In to the bathroom she comes with her bowl, the ice cream scoop and the ice cream. "Watch, Mom." "Uh, yeah, Brenna. Awesome." "Mom." "Yes, dear?" "This is the first time I did this by myself!" "Cool." "How ya doing, Mom?" "I'm o.k., do you think that's enough ice cream?" Yeah. Like I am in any position of authority....
"Just a little more, Mom. Wow, this is hard."
After finishing her scooping, she turns to me and holds out the scoop and says, "Wanna lick?"
"No thanks, honey." "O.k., Mom." And off she goes to put the ice cream back into the freezer. A little later, I called out, "Hey, Brenna-can you bring me my glasses?" This is the response I get: "No." I, of course, being the gracious person I am, yell back, "NO? Whaddaya mean NO? I fed you dinner, didn't I?? You can certainly bring me my glasses." I know. Stellar Mom evening all the way around. And yes, she eventually gave me my glasses. I get kinda bored in the bathroom and like to read...oh, well, never mind.
I did do some rearranging while I was in the bathroom drinking my prep. It gave me some distraction and I didn't have to fasten my seatbelt just yet. It turned out pretty nice, if I do say so...
Well, that's the end of my colonoscopy stories, I promise!!
Have a great day~
