I was holding Hope last night when she became fussy. I patted, rocked, all the other things we in mommydom do to soothe a fussy baby. Unfortunately, it wasn't working.
Then while I was getting up from the couch Hope proceeded to..well...toot. Or have "trouser cough" as one good friend of mine calls it. 7 year old Sis began to giggle. Then our conversation went like this:
Me: (exclaiming to Hope) Was that the problem? Do we feel better now? I think maybe we should give you some Mylicon Drops, huh?
Sis: Momma, what are Mylicon Drops?
Me: They are a special medicine that helps baby's with their gas. It helps her not have the toots so much.
Sis: (giggling) Maybe we should give Daddy some too!
I didn't tell her this, but I think it would take more than Mylicon Drops for Daddy. Maybe Mylicon Pints.
