So Hubbs and I have decided to start potty training SweetPea. Now, when I say start, I mean do the research and prep work and all that junk. Like how are we supposed to do this unimaginable task. Our pediatrician gave us a handout, and we are supposed to start by teaching her toileting words, and how to tell the difference between wet and dry. Which all that means is I can't be so lazy and have to change her diaper more often.
Anyway, we also need to get a potty chair. Now since I love the internet I do all my window shopping and research online before I walk out the door. Consumer Reports is usually very helpful, but not as much this time. So I surfed over to Epinions, another goldmine of a site, and laughed so hard I had to literally get-up from the computer.
I mean, let's face it, kids are fun, pottty humor is pretty darn fun, now put them together, what a beautiful recipe (when you are reading about it and not involved in it of course.) I could not stop the tears from flowing. It was seriously funny.

Meth Has Ruined My Life!

So maybe it hasn't ruined my life....but for sure it has made some huge inconveniences for me. I am never shopping at Long's again. Or at least I am going to try not to. Whose lame idea was it to not allow parents to buy PediaCare for their sick child. Saturday at 7:45pm is not an unreasonable time of day to expect a "drug store" to sell drugs. I hate Long's. I hate the fact that it is the closest drug store to my house too. When I left Long's I drove to Walgreen's, which is where the clerk at Long's suggested I go, and bought the bottle of PediaCare there. By the way, does any one know how much Meth can be made with the drop of pseudoephedrine in PediaCare, and what the actual street value is? The clerk at Walgreen's didn't even know what pseudoephedrine was, nor was the medication behind the counter of the pharmacy. So I decided to drop $60 more on other lame junk I really don't need, but felt like buying to prove some undecipherable point.
I guess the point is, shouldn't a drug store be able to sell drugs while it is open. Seriously now, couldn't a manager hole a hot little key in their pocket for the RARE chance that a child, or adult for that matter, might get a cold outside of pharmacy hours. They can always tell the meth rats, "I'm sorry, I am only allowed to sell you one box of cold medicine at a time, you'll have to go to another store and buy more there to build up your stock pile."
Next time I am inviting the store manager over to sit with my daughter all night while she can't sleep so that I can.
