The above question from a fourth grader as I entered school at 3:45 for a co-worker’s baby shower.
The answer: my poor kitty needed a trip to the vet. Lesson learned: It is a *really* good thing I don’t have human kids. Sure, the official reason is that they are demanding, expensive, energy-draining, inhibit travel and spontaneity, and I have enough children already at school. This is all still true. But I think we have also seen that, based on the worry level induced by a sick animal, if I had a real human being to be responsible for keeping alive I would be a nervous wreck.
Fortunately, all will soon be well thanks to a good vet and some nice antibiotics.
The day off also (fortuitously) enabled me to finish the gift for said baby shower. The co-worker is going with cloth diapers. As another co-worker said (and I think it’s an advertising tagline), “These aren’t your mother’s cloth diapers.” Here’s how they work these days.
So, what better gift than . . .
the traditional “soaker” / diaper cover. Items finished and photo taken 5 minutes before I had to leave for the shower.
