There and Back Again: A Hobbit's Tale by Mama
The hobbit being Dinkeneh, and there being a fine, albeit slow, ER. D has taken to eating copious amounts of food--including first and second breakfasts, elevenses and afternoon tea--so we, in turn, have taken to calling him our little hobbit. This new love affair with all things edible, however, led to a very unnecessary trip to the ER this evening. Apparently something in the much-loved yogurt did not agree with little hobbit, he broke out in what can only be described as a very minor rash that completely freaked the parents out, and off we rushed willynilly to the ER. After waiting in vain for 1.5 hours (at 10pm) for a doctor to show, we reached the conclusion that since the rash had all but disappeared at that point, it was probably okay for us to venture home again. Award us 5 points in the newbie parent column. Sweet.
