The Piccups!

Dear Dumplin,

“I GOT IT THE PICCUPS!  I GOT IT THE PICCUPS!”

That’s what you yelled to me the other day while shaking your hands in the air.

“What?” I said.

“MOMMY!!!  OH NO!!! I GOT IT THE PICCUPS!!!”

I could not understand what you were saying.  You kept yelling this to me over and over as you shook your hands and looked like the world was ending.  I started to get worried.  You yelled and yelled and I did not understand what was happening.  Then I heard it.

“Hic… Hic… Hic…”

“Izzy.  Do you have the hiccups?”

“Oh my peas Mommy.  I got it the piccups.  What I do?”

And then I did the unthinkable.  I laughed.  I laughed hysterically.  I could not help it.  I laughed until tears came out of my eyes.  You did not like this… at all.

“Is not funny I got it the piccups Mommy” you said as you frowned.

“No baby, it’s not funny that you have the hiccups.  It’s funny that you are calling them the piccups.”

Then I gave you some water.

Love,

Mama
