Worn Out


It was a tough first week "back to the grind" for Thing 2. The poor little guy contracted pink eye and was overflowing yellow-ish goop from his left eye earlier this week. Not a fan of the administering of eye drops, he fought ferociously each time his father or I inched close to him with the dreaded Polysporin bottle. He's got spunk, that one, and after experiencing some of the eye-drop-fights I'd say this young man may be headed for UFC one day . . .

Strangely, as his eye began to clear up, Thing 2 became increasingly miserable and was having round-the-clock bouts of crying and screaming. I eventually took him to the doctor one night, sensing that something was just not right. Luck was not on his side this week and he ended up being diagnosed with a nasty ear infection.

He was so tired and worn out that he literally passed out one evening while lounging with Daddy. So utterly unlike him, I had to capture the moment so it would stay with me. I'm hoping the rest of 2009 brings calmer waters for our little tough guy!

He sounds a lot like mine. He could stay up for days if he's not in his bed. Your poor little guy. I hope he's feeling better. It is sweet when they tucker out right on you, though, isn't it!?

Sometimes kids just need their daddy! Sorry to hear that he was so sick, Mine has gone several rounds with pink eye and eye infections. A new one for her lately....she got an upper respiratory infection. Translation....Viral pneumonia. Not fun!

Awwwww poor thing. Pink Eye and ear infections are rough. Imp hates eye drops. Last year she got pink eye three times and it was such a miserable job getting her to be still so we could put the drop in. I felt like we were torturing her! We eventually had to wrap her like a burrito in a soft blankie in order to get the drops in. Uhg.

Hope your little ones are feeling better soon.
