Day from hell

March 22nd, 2011 at 02:01 am

Today was a real doozy.

Kid 1 woke us up way early this morning, and was super crabby. He kept telling me he had an ouchy in his mouth. I looked and saw nothing, but suspected something was up because normally he points out his ouchy, then says "it'll be okay in a minute."

He and his brother went to the sitter to play with another baby. I dropped them off and went home to try to work. I was so tired and frazzled from trying to pack so much into every single day recently, that it was impossible to concentrate.

Still, I managed to make one work call, line up the homeowners insurance for the house we are buying next week-- eek-- and send more documents to the mortgage bank.

When I go to pick up the kids, things really go downhill. The sitter says I need to take kid 1 to the doctor. I take him, and find out he has an ear infection (the ouchy from the morning) AND pink eye in BOTH EYES.

Ugh. You try putting drops in the eyes of a 3 year old boy who is as strong as the hulk and fights every thing. AND getting him to drink 4 tbsp of pink icky antibiotic liquid a day. AND see if you can make it through the contagious phase without giving it to his 1 year old little brother.

On top of the exhaustion, it was just too much to take.

The only good thing is that the kid took the eye drops like a champ, although I did bribe him with a bowl of ice cream.

I am going to bed early tonight, just in case tomorrow is a doozy as well.

    That does sound like a rough day. I hope kid #1 gets feeling better soon, and kid #2 doesn't catch pink eye!

    Hopefully tomorrow will be better!!

    Your pharmacy may have flavored liquids to add liquid antibiotics to. I think ours offers it at no charge. We used to put that pink antibiotic in cranberry juice.

    I will say he is taking his medication like a little champ. I was expecting much more resistance.
