big pharma

Confession: The Mama likes vitamins. Nothing too wacky, but some probiotics, fish oils, multi-vitamins, homeopathic allergy pills, and a couple of innocuous prescriptions round out my daily routine. The Kidling has observed me swallowing or chomping those little treasures on several occasions and one morning was bored enough with her little kidling life to quiz me:

The Kidling: What’s the green one for?
The Mama: My nose.
The Kidling: The circle?
The Mama: Which circle?
The Kidling: The large one.
The Mama: My skin
The Kidling: The small one?
The Mama: My ovaries
The Kidling: The other one?
The Mama: My brain.
The Kidling: (gasps with alarm) You have brain problems!?!

We all do, dear one. We all do. Also? Why aren’t you concerned about my ovaries? I was sure the BCP would launch us into a newly detailed discussion of human reproduction. As soon as I think I know what’s coming…

    • Thanks, Mimi. She has been a stinker lately, and I’ve got to tell you, this blog is a really, really good reminder for me of how fantastic she is when she is well-rested. Fatigue will turn even the best kidling into a bear.
