So last night my youngest was up at 3a.m., screaming and crying, with a runny nose and cough... which directly translates in a barely coherent Nick and Omi passing the baby back and forth trying to figure out what might comfort him best. He spit up on Nick , and on the way to the bath I got showered in a liquid, that belongs in the toilet, in the dark Nick cut himself on something and he was bleeding. To say the least, it was quite a night.
This long night dragged into a long day for my poor baby. I was picking up my daughter from school, and I got the "did you give him some sprite?" call. I don't know what made me do it. Maybe because I felt the few remaining strings of sanity slowly slipping, but I did it. I directly purchased some Sprite, put it in a bottle, just like all good moms do...(riiiight.) and LO and BEHOLD......the baby got quiet, started to jabber and a few seconds later he was out like a light. I'm not sure why I'm sharing this, aside from pure shock, and a little bit of confusion....but there you have it. SPRITE may just be the cure for all things. Try it. Why not?
