it's baaaaaaack...

again with the ear infection? Seriously?!

I leave work AGAIN early yesterday to pick up the minis for a lab visit at the pediatrician. Little One to get her monthly Synagis vaccine and flu shot and Big One for her second Flu Mist. The pediatrician decided to check out Little One because of the recent ear issues and chest infection to give her the all-clear for the flu shot....lo and behold the GD ear infection is BACK....AGAIN...

FUCK!... I say....OUT LOUD in the pediatrician's office......

Mom of the Year.....right here....

We see the ENT on Monday. I don't know why I'm shocked, I've got allergies that require weekly allergy injections and Big One had (is growing out of...thankfully) allergies and constant ear infections as a baby. She ended up with 3 sets of tubes and adenoids removed and finally outgrew it. Extremely small ear canals run in my family big time.

De ja vu

sick of the sick....

All of this late-afternoon early-evening doctor visiting with no Husband to watch after Little Sick One meant Big One missed Daisy's (Girl Scouts) last night. Holy motherbitch you would have thought someone took her out back and shot her puppy in the head (relax, we don't have a gun....or a puppy...). It was that kind of drama. The kind this Mom wasn't into last night. It was not a good night at the Said So house.......but there haven't been a lot of good nights for me in, let's see, how old is Little One....8 months

I am completely over the pacifier round-up at all hours of the night. She CAN get it in herself now, she just doesn't do it. It's more fun to make Mommy insane I guess......she's close to successful at forcing me into Dorthea Dix

I remember this stage with Big One.....how I'd wished maybe I'd just let her suck her thumb instead....and before you launch the 'thumb sucking' 'pacifier' orthodontic brigade.....I KNOW

but dammit I'm tired and it might be worth the $5000 for braces later for a little sleep tonight...

You ain't kidding! The pacifier crap is SO annoying! I had one who wouldn't give it up until he was 4 YRS OLD! I decided if he showed at Harvard with it on his 1st day of college, I'd stress about it. I got so many comments from people - Guess what? *My* kid - you may now shut up, thanks. And then, the baby wouldn't take the damn thing from 8 months on- EVER. And she freaking NEEDED it! But, nooooo... I'll just whine myself to sleep instead, thank you. I considered duct tape, but thought better of it. Good luck with the ears.

Still making me laugh....

Holy Amoxicillian, I feel ya. Diva princess went to the ENT just this morning, just as we thought, tonsils and adnoids have to come out, and shes all of 3. Princess in training just saw the fam dr a matter of hours ago, with double ear infections. I feel for ya that you have to deal with it so often it sounds like. Little one has been such a trooper, she barely has fussed about the ears at all, but has been really sick from a bastard cold that wont let go. I wish you luck.

Poor Little One. Why can't we keep these kids well?
