Sandman Schmandman…Posted: March 3, 2013
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.
