and yet again with the ear infection. I am pretty sure that it is just the same infection as the previous since I noticed her grabbing and squiggling her ear as I gave her the last dose of Amoxycillin last week. I wanted to give it a chance.
Really though? I'm pretty darn sure that this newest possession by the Sulphurous Demons from Hell of my sweet and dreamy youngest is a trifecta of ear infection, standard head cold, and teething. Two nights ago we also added repeated vomiting, but I think that was mostly due to tummy upset from all the injested snot. My poor, poor baby.
It is made all the harder by how frustrating it to deal with a screaming and miserable child. And the not sleeping thing, that sucks too. It doesn't help that I have virtually NO RIGHT to get put out with my Pearl because, not only is she SICK, but as the perfectest and sweetest baby in the world she has oodles of mandatory crying time to make up. Crusty mama... poor, poor baby.
On a happier note, we have entered into an all new era with LaLa even faster that I had hoped... last night when I asked her what her favorite part of the day was, her answer was "ummmm.... tsk, CoolCool." The translation? Cool School. Down the street a couple of kids have decided to run this Cool School thing for the summer. It costs a buck a kid and lasts for one hour once a week. They learn about stuff, do a craft and have a snack. Not one crapping pony in sight. They don't really take two year olds but they like LaLa so....shhhh. The plan was for me to do my grocery shopping in that one hour. Hasn't worked yet but I love to dream.
Mama's of sick kids are boring, have you noticed? All they talk about are the symptoms exibited by the wee sufferer. Enough of the snotpoopbarf. Soooo... here's a thing that Nobody does occasionally... you ask a question in the comments and I will answer it, within reason. Cause I aint telling you my bra size and stuff like that. Not that I think you care or would ask a thing like that... I'm just sayin'. So, ummm. Ask away!
