Today is a weird day. I’m already sleep deprived since the Binkster woke up with the ominous barking seal cough at around 9pm last night. Which meant no sleep for me as I set up his humidifier and listened to him and BC Man cough. ALL. NIGHT. LONG.
First thing this morning I called his pediatrician and got an appointment to bring him in and get the ol’ croup diagnosis and steroid prescription. On the way to the doctor, my month-old daughter decided to take an epic poop and covered herself and her car seat in more poop than I could imagine. Next to her was my barking, crying son who doesn’t understand why he can’t breathe. Meanwhile, I’m trying to safely drive and get him to cough into a tissue and away from his sister, because I know it won’t be good news if the newborn catches his funk (who caught it from BC Man).
As I get ready to pull into our doctor’s office I see this mess:
It had just happened. That is a deer, sitting in the backseat of a car (still kicking when I saw it) with the elderly passenger sitting there, covered in the GIANT deer’s blood. It was one of the most bizarre things I’ve ever witnessed. I got there shortly after the accident and the ladies were fine. A few people stopped, including the dude who set up his tripod to get these pictures*.
I’ve seen accidents caused by deer in this area before. However, I have never seen a big buck actually jump into the back seat of the car (and survive). Those poor ladies! Despite having a sick toddler and poop-frosted newborn, I was thankful that I had to stop on the way to put the baby’s binky back in, otherwise that deer could have leaped into my backseat where my kids sit. Thankfully, nobody was hurt (except for the deer which authorities had to euthanize).
Anybody else having as weird a Monday as me?
