I have said yelled that down the hall approximately 1500 times in the last week. Less than 48 hours after writing this post, Gabbers and Hammy came down with pink eye. When I took them to the doctor he asked Gabbers, "Do your ears hurt?" She said, "What?" And he repeated, "Do your ears hurt?" She said, "No." He said, "Because you have a severe double ear infection." Then he checked Hammy and he did as well -- with emphasis on the severe.
It makes me feel a little guilty about this past week when I thought Gabbers was ignoring me multiple times. lol She just couldn't hear.
Then within two days of that, Squdge and I came down with pink eye too. One more day and Q. Mouse had it. Bun joined in on the fun with an ear infection too. Just one ear for him though. phew! It has been an itchy eye-goopy week with lots of screaming and toddler torture. Okay, mostly just Hammy with the screaming and torture. And the most fun of all, the antibiotics are causing diarrhea. Sometimes I think I should invest in Kimberley-Clark stock, what with all the nose and tushie wiping that's been going on.
Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. And I've asked that Santa bring us a year supply of good health and sleep-filled nights.
Merry Christmas to you! I'll be back in 2010.
P.S. That's not me. That's my sister who just visited. And she has a good excuse to be passed out like that. ;)
