Manic: In addition to everything else that went with the very busy first week back to school, our cat ends up needing dental surgery, bless his feline fangs!
Managed: So, I did what I had to do (moms are really good at this mantra). First I got my son to his 7:15 am club meeting at his middle school, then dropped my daughter off to her school by 7:30 am and finally made it to the vet to drop off our sweet kitty by 7:45 am for his surgery prep.
Once everyone was where they needed to be, a happy me noticed something silly. I looked down at my feet and realized that in my focused state of getting everyone from point A to point B to point C, I had left the house in my son’s oversized flip flops! I realized this while walking through the grocery store several minutes after Tucker’s drop-off! And I can’t even say if the shoe fits….because my teenagers’ shoes are quite big on me! But hey, silly big shoes or not, I got everyone where they needed to be on time! This is why I call myself the Manic but Managed Mom!
Now back to my funny headline and cool cat pic. I was almost happy to discover that our cat, Tucker would need a week’s worth of medicine following his surgery, which involved the extraction to two infected teeth (poor guy). Why you ask?! Since most cats must be held down and forced to take their meds, our funny Tucker LOVES medicine and begs us for his daily dose! Take a look at my pet pic to see what I mean….
