A Gimp Foot, A Granny Sock, Unfabulous Drugs, and the Poop on the Bus (that made it all worthwhile)

So if you have a kooky foot fetish or a dude-that's-so-not-cool french bulldog fetish (ewww) get ready to be really turned on...


Long story short: my foot has been killing me for a week and I woke up today and it was 10x worse.

It turns out Urgent Care on the Friday before Halloween is 100% a freakshow. I wish I'd taken pics of the geisha who checked me in or the neon haired sexy kitty cat who took my blood pressure because, well, because.

I was excited that they were playing Taio Cruz's "Dynamite" in the xray room. I love that song. Oh, and no broken bones, another bonus!

Meanwhile, I was hoping the doc would prescribe me Demerol or Percocet. I mean really, I go to the doctor once every decade, I deserve a magic carpet ride. I got Ibuprofen - yipeeee...

The Poop on the Bus...

I went back to work, then had leftover pasta with Otto for dinner, we did bathtime and amazingly he was asking for a "nap" (aka bedtime) at 5:50pm. Like 30 minutes early, hells to the yes!

Every night at bedtime he makes song requests. Sometimes he'll ask for "The Digger Truck Song" and we have to make something up on the fly. We've got a mental library of songs we've made up like that, including "Otto is a Helicopter Pilot" which is my personal favorite.

Tonight he asked for "The Wheels on the Bus" which is like his go-to song of choice lately. He likes to prompt us with who is on the bus, then we get to sing. He'll say, "the daddy" then we sing, "the daddy on the bus goes I love you."

Tonight it was "mommy" "cat" and then "poop". Awesome. I definitely cracked a smile, but didn't miss a beat. So in case you wondered, the poop on the bus goes "poop poop poop, all through the towwwwn"

Love that kid! So. Much.

Ummm, is that your couch in your HOME? Cuz if it is, I really want to come sit on it-looks fun!

Get Otto the DVD "I Dig Dirt" online, Amazon, maybe? It's way low budge, and corny but an instant hit...swearsies!

Hope your foot gets back to better fast!

BTW, I have a secret stash of the good stuff if you need me to UPS it ;-) KIDDING!

Phyllis said...

Oh my goodness Lindsey. I hope your foot heals fast so you can keep up with sweet Otto!! We miss you guys!! Pan asks for y'all all the time. I miss my little handsome man. I'm very happy Otto is adjusting well to preschool. I wish Pan could go but Marshall wants them homeschooled oh well. We carved our first pumpkin last night and Marshall did a great job!!! I'm super excited about going trick or treating!!! I hope you can go too on a bum leg. Hope to see y'all soon!!! Tell Otto we miss him and hi.

Lindsey Muth said...

Tracy - OMG if you aren't kidding please fedex that secret stash to me right away! And you can come over any time to sit on the couch, it's from Ikea and needs a steam clean but I do love it!

I think we've seen some of the "I Dig Dirt" songs on YouTube but I'll definitely look for it. Kid loves digger trucks - it's so weird to me :)

Lindsey Muth said...

Phyllis, let's get the kiddos together soon! Otto loves preschool and I think a couple days a week coupled with home schooling might be a "best of both worlds" thing. Although every parent finds their own best balance - and honestly if we could, I would love to homeschool Otto, it really is my dream job!

I'm gonna double up on the dope if I have to, whatever it takes to got Trick or Treating! You guys have a fun and safe one and give hugs to your sweet little princesses for me! <3

I love that couch!
AND I love your dog! I have always wanted a French Bulldog. The hubs is not so keen!
Feel better soon. A bunk foot is no good. Especially because you have to use it like every single day!
Sending get well wishes from Cali!
xoxo

Try Acupuncture. It helped my whole body so my foot could heal. Get well soon and keep singing!

I was secretly hoping the story of the Poo on the bus was going to be you had a poo accident on the bus. Is that wrong? (YET, UBER FUNNY?)

How's the granny sock holding up to your bum foot? I hope your massively strong IBuprophen hasn't taken you too far out of reality. I know those can take care of a massive headache in an instant (and that's about it).

Hope you're having a lovely monday...I'm obviously catching up on my Lindsey Love today :)

Lindsey Muth said...

Thanks, Alana! Muah! Tell your hubs frenchies are great apartment dogs but serious napolean complex with bigger dogs #annoying

Kristin, omg I feel like acupuncture would be so helpful for this *thing (whatever it is). I did it for many months during our infertility journey and loved so many aspects of the process. And my leg/foot could seriously use some extra chi!

Jenny, you crack me up! Only you would hope I pooped myself on the bus! Love. You!

Poppy said...

Ibuprofen and a sexy boot? At least you could have been checked in or had your pulse taken by JT or a slutty fireman. Totally not fair.

I wonder what other verses of wheels on the bus you may have come up with under the influunce of demerol though. That may have been vlog worthy.

Lindsey Muth said...

Marie! Yay, your lurking just brought a huge smile to my face! I didn't know you had a little girl, awww, I'll ask you more about her on Friday <3 Maybe we could playdate some time? Is that against the rules or fine? Would be fun!

Poppy! OMG you are my favorite new find. You kill me! If I ever score some sweet demerol I'll throw it in a jello shot for you! But first I'll take a couple and vlog some lyrics just for you. <3 !!
