    OMG! That’s too funny. You gotta do what you gotta do!

  2. Poor you … NOT … I LOVE “my kid is sick days” (assuming she’s not puking or anything really bad).

    Once I was sooooo sick, and being a single mom with no help whatsoever – I was laying on the ground in tears because I couldn’t actually get up to take care of Benjamin. He was fed and everything but I couldn’t move.

    He was 18 months old – and he came up to me, and gave me a hug.

    It was worth the entire sickness, just for that moment.

  3. Hey,
    I hope MP is feeling better! Missed you today! I wish I could beam you some toilet paper. Oh, and this just shows how much you should lay off the tacos. But really, no need to joke in this situation.

  4. Hey, if it weren’t for all those tacos, I wouldn’t have HALF those fast food napkins …

  5. awww, hope the MP is feeling better. and i’d call that ingenuity.

  6. Oh, yes, the skill of being a parent. You rock! Hope she’s better soon.

  7. What a great pic. I wish I could run to the store for you, though.

  8. Poor mommy, poor girlie. Hope you are both well-fed, well-rested, well-oxygenated and well-wiped SOON.

  9. this must also apply to:

    Cheap Jewish Husbands

    because i’ve been here, done this.

  10. Is it sad that I could peg those napkins as coming from Subway in half a second?

    Survival…. the mother of invention? Or is that necessity? Well, whatever, we single moms have it down!

  11. that’s awesome – which btw, $5 footlongs on the menu – permanently?! – how cool is that?!
