Sharp shooter

sick Bug

On Thursday when the Lorso and I went to see the first images of Bug’s brother or sister, Bug had a playdate with a little girl whose mom works with me at the PMO. When I came to pick him up, the mom said sheepishly, “I feel like I failed you. He peed in his pants three times!” He left there wearing his friend’s pink stretch pants and frilly purple panties.

But he had also used the toilet successfully three other times there, which was my first clue that something wasn’t right in Bugland. Then yesterday during his rest time he got up seven times to pee. Which (unless he is a NEWLY PREGNANT WOMAN APPARENTLY) is a lot of times to have to pee in two hours.

Then last night was just a pee-fest, with the Lorso and I getting very little sleep. So when Bug got up for good at 5:30 and told us his penis and back (hello kidneys!) hurt, we figured it was time to rush him henceforth to Ye Olde Doctor.

And bladder infection it indeed was, but can I just tell you? That boy peed in a cup like he’d been doing it his whole life. I’m strangely proud of that fact. Like “That’s m’ boy! He’s a sharp shooter, he is!”

I need a nap.
