Birthday Blues

5 reasons to have the Birthday Blues on your 5th Birthday.
1. Stomach aches
2. Constipation
3. No bowel movement x5 days
4. Loss of appetite
5. Intense Bowel Regimen (stool softeners, laxatives, enemas)
You know it's bad when you can't even enjoy you special "Birthday Cake" pancakes

and you end up on the toilet as your fun, special breakfast sits alone

Luckily this poor kid had a few hours of feeling alright and insisted on making his Birthday trip to Disneyland as previously planned. He was able to ride the new Star Tours ride which absolutely made his day! Also, since it was just himself, big brother and mom he managed to get in The Matterhorn, Big Thunder Mountain, the Tea cups and a few others rides as well. It wasnt until the birthday boy attempted his most favorite Disneyland treat....
The Churro!

That his stomach was sent into knots once again and our visit to the happiest place on earth was cut short as we called it a day.
Luckily we were able to get this mess cleared up/"out" a day later and we had a fun Birthday Party redo.
To say it was an unforgettable Birthday would be an understatement!
Hoping #6 will be a little less crappy.

Yes.... The perks of blogging. The poor kid will always remember his "crappy" 5th birthday. I'm sure he will love me for this one:)
