Now the Dog Is Upset Too

Now I know my baby is just fine. Yesterday S was crawling around in my living room. She was picking up and choking on every little scrap of spare paper she could find. Paper so small that most people would need an electron microscope to even see it but my little S is super skilled in the art of finding tiny tiny little scraps of paper and getting then stuck in her throat. Its sort of a gift. Anyway S was on one of her many of her crawl away missions when suddenly the holy grail of thing to put in her mouth struck her eye. She crawled with such glee and abandon one would think she was on her way to collect her Nobel Prize in gumming research. She reached her goal and screamed with glee before shoving... wait for it...dog food into her mouth. Lots of dog food as many pieces of dry tasty dog food as would fit in her little mouth. My dog began to bark in outrage as my husband and I made the dash across the apartment to her as she flapped her little hands and bounced with joy at the tasty morsels. Now some might think this is a sure sign of tumors or brain damage or even a little stupidity but I now know she is just a normal little baby out to eat every disgusting thing she can find.

Lets play Why Didn't Suzie Blog on Friday:

Why didn't Suzie blog on Friday was it because:

A. She was on a surprise trip to the Caribbean?

B. She was crowned Mrs. America and went to collect her crown?

C. She discovered the truth about JFK and was dodging FBI agents trying to gun her down before she published the truth?

D. Because her entire family was struck with such a horrible stomach bug that she was vomiting pizza out her nose while lying on the bathroom floor mentally trying to levitate clean sheets to help B who was also throwing his guts up.

Give up? The answer is D! Yes D! Yes she ended her stellar week with the stomach bug from hell. Weee!! If you won give yourself 10 points and use lots of hand sanitizer who knows how you get this thing.

I was hoping you had a surprise jaunt to the Caribbean.

Mama Zen said...

Mine never actually ate dog food. She preferred to tempt the dog to bite her by trying to steal his chew bone.

Hope you're feeling better!

That sucks about Friday. But it's good news about S. Yes, she is normal, unfortunately her way of showing it was a little gross.

Gross gross gross all around and back. I have a very clean flat now that my Mum has been through it and there are no diapers, dog food or disease anywhere near it... (I give it 2 days before it is back to sluttish, bachelor girl hell again.)
SOOOOOOO happy Zen master back to being baby.

Well I don't know how your week could have gotten any worse. You have beat our family with a 3 day stomach bug two weeks ago followed with August getting a viral infection right on top of that!

I hope you all have a great week and feel much better now!

Meg said...

Ah, that dog food eating phase. I was glad when that came to an end.

Hope you're feeling better.

Good gracious!
I just don't know what to say. You do deserve an award! At least a brownie and something strongish to wash it down!
I send you a big hug. And a bone for the doggy!
