Kind of sick story

I really never do "pictureless" posts, but i just had to tell everyone this story, even though it makes me look kinda bad. This week Wes got sick for the first time he has a really bad cold and an ear infection. On Tuesday he felt kind of warm so I took his temperature. I don't have one of the ear thermometers so I decided to take his temp in his bum (it is the most accurate spot). He did have a temperature of 100.7. Well he had been screaming bloody murder for over an hour and I was going crazy. I finally got him to sleep and I wanted to check his temperature again, but this time in his mouth since he was laying still. So I put the thermometer in his mouth and took his temp. After I took it out I realized i never washed it off after I had it in his butt. Yes, I put the thermometer in his butt then in his mouth. How sick is that? poor Wes. Am I the worst mom? In my defense his screaming had me totally frazzled and I wasn't even paying attention to what I was doing.


  1. I just love your honesty! I love that you could make a mistake (like I'm sure EVERY mother does) and share it with the rest of us since it's a great story!

  2. Oh my gosh I just laughed so hard. Thanks, I needed that!
