Bees, Water, and NyQuil

Posted by jon on November 18, 2010 in not so deep thoughts |

I know everyone thinks they have the smartest kid in the world. I don’t know about that but I do know that I have a kid much smarter than me. Let me tell you what happened a few nights ago.

Everyone had gone to bed and I’m up just relaxing when I hear my wife get up and go to Cee’s room. Not that it is that unusual to have to check on a 3 year old in the night, but after a few minutes Tiff comes out to get me. Apparently our poor little girl is laying in bed covering her ears because “the bees are getting in her ears”. So like a good parent I go in there to try and calm her down and assure her there are no bees. I failed. The best results I got were she let me cover her ears.

So since compassion came up short I decided to go with the next best thing…bold face lies. I asked Cee if she’d like some medicine to help get rid of the bees. She was very pleased with my suggestion and seemed to wonder why it took me so long to come to what should have been an obvious solution. So I went out to get the “medicine”. What I got her was some water in a medicine spoon, that just between us.

*On a side note I told this story to my mom and her response was that she would have just given me real Tylenol assuming it would help if something was hurting and help me go back to sleep. I thought it was good to know how liberally the meds were whipped around when I was growing up. Just kidding mom…I love you!*

When I got back Cee was happy to see her “medicine”. She took it and shot me a skeptical look asking, “Is that water?” So I was faced with a dilemma…I’ve just been called out by a half asleep 3 year old…what do I do? I assured her it would keep the bees away and she could go back to sleep. Then I got out of there as quick as I could before she started asking any other questions. Next time she wakes up in the middle of the night I’m going straight to the NyQuil (for both of us) to avoid any of these awkward moments. Just kidding.
