Rachel has terrible allergies. I took her to the pediatrician to get her some relief. As we drove to the drugstore, script in hand, she complained of a headache.
Rachel: " I have a headache, Momma"
Me: "Take some Tylenol when you get home."
Rachel: "I love Tylenol. Lasts for hours and really gets rid of the headache. Except when I head-bang. Then it feels like my brain is shaking back and forth."
Me: "Well, then don't head-bang, silly".
Rachel: "Mom, you can't ask that of a teenager. It's like asking a monkey not to throw poo....it's just not gonna happen."
