About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

How to have your entire day's schedule upended...

All it takes is a six year old boy vomiting his last meal of creamed spinach into the computer keyboard.

No going to school for at least a day. No spelling test for him. No taking his grandmother out to lunch. No taking his sister to the playground.

New keyboard. New mouse pad. New wrist rest. New video to watch while recuperating. Dad jumps up and makes chocolate chip muffins on request. Sister doesn't bug the batsnot out of him. Older brother gets to ride the bus in peace. Maximum nap time after taking Tylenol and Benedryl.

Yep, all it takes is one good heave into the keyboard while Mom helps with spelling homework.

Pretty simple.

I didn't know keyboards were so cheap these days.

Welcome to parenthood.

Lots of bugs 'round this time of year. Worst case, may need anti-biotics. Got 3 school aged kids myself. Wife has them shower as soon as they get home from school. Hope your lil one feels better soon.

Rick, thanks for your concern. He's bouncing right back, being the child we figure to be our own "Energizer Bunny". When he was born we named him Isaac, remembering that it meant either "He laughs" or "God laughs". He was completely unplanned so it seemed to fit.

As things have turned out, we gave him the perfect name!

The time bombs on TV always come with a digital readout so you can tell how long until they explode. Why don't kids come with that kind of readout?

Subvet said...

IR, it's a good one!

Subvet said...

Anthony, I'm still looking for the book of child rearing instructions they should have given out when he was born.

Hah, little Isaac is a prodigy. It takes the co-operation of half of my family to achieve something like that. :)

I once left a laptop on top of a wardrobe during a weekend break, and while I was away my sister wandered into my room and pulled it down to take a look at it. Finally, she got bored and left it on my bed.

Unfortunately, this put it within reach of my two youngest siblings, who proceeded to amuse themselves by pulling keys off the keyboard and scattering them around the room, finally leaving it open on the floor.

Where, for good measure, our dolt of a Rottweiler found it and decided to properly baptise this foreign-smelling object into the family by peeing on it.

I'll leave you to imagine how delighted I was to return to find my laptop on the floor, half the keyboard missing, covered in dog hairs and filled with urine.

There are no pictures, but the flashbacks are quite sufficient.
