- 1May 15, '12 by ninja-nurseQuote from babyRN.Noo, honey. Kudos to YOU. I recently made my whole family laugh hysterically when, holding my 2 week old niece, I said that: "She's just too small. That's it, I'm never having kids, I'll adopt toddlers. She's just entirely too small."You know you're a NICU nurse when you cross-train a PICU nurse and say, "..and we have baby X, who is very old..." "How old?" "About 4 months" and the PICU RN bursts out laughing...
Kudos to you peds and adult nurses. I have no idea what I would do with anything that big.

about color and whether it was formed or more like tasty freeze.
- 3May 20, '12 by kmarie724You know you're a nurse when your newly potty trained 3 year old gets some poop on her finger while wiping herself in the bathroom and when she starts throwing a fit about the poop on her finger, you say "it's just a little poop. Calm down and wash your hands."

two days ago at the vet's. he isn't fat, they just grow very quickly. it can be a struggle sometimes to get enough puppy food into him to allow him good growth but not so much that he gets the runs.
sometimes i wish canine poop weren't such a main topic of conversation around here!
mannie is tan and ollie is black.

- 3May 21, '12 by StephalumpQuote from woohBahaha! When my then 10 month-old was in the PICU a couple months ago, I felt so badly for our nurses. When he was awake, our room was all alarms, all the time. And he HATED the pulseox. Completely hated it.
Just stick me in a room with an awake toddler on continuous pulse ox.
