Sandman Schmandman…

Dear Mama,

Well.  Let me just come out and say it.  Stop sticking crap on my hot baby bod.  It really displeases me.   And let me remind you, I don’t cry.  When my sisters plaster me with stickers, scream in my face (lovingly), you forget to feed me, I have to do tummy time… I am very understanding of all these things.  My extra chromosome really seems to have you all in a tizzy so I figure I’ll cut you a break on some stuff.  

But… I hope it was noticeable to you that I cried my head off while you put that weird gunk all over my head and made me look like a living computer chip.  And that thing you call a cannula, that goes in my nose???  WTF, mom?

Ok, so maybe I’m being a little dramatic.  After I filled up on milk, I did fall asleep, after all.  I hope you get whatever so-called  “information” you’re looking for during this sleep study.  I get it, kids with Down Syndrome often have sleep apnea, I snore and sputter a lot in my sleep, you’re worried I’m not oxygenating my brain, don’t want that to affect me in the future, riiiiight.  It’s cool, I get it.  But… I take secret pleasure from knowing that you’re sleeping in a super uncomfortable pull out couch next to me.  It is punishment for sticking all that stuff on my bod.  Love you, mama.

Your son,

    Awwww…poor LP! I hope the study went well and that there were no issues. The things our poor kiddos have to go through…just not fair!

    LOL…A living computer chip, love it! haha

    Hope the test results for the little guy came back good.

    He is so cute! When he’s older, he and Kaya can share baby pictures. We have plenty of her with all the wires and tubes. Hope all the test results are excellent. AK

  4. I snore too. Pretty sure my wife would prefer to put me on the couch though.
