What a Day!!

Have you ever just had one of those days where you couldn't wait for the kids to go to bed so you could have just one bloody moment of silence time for yourself to enjoy the quiet? You haven't? Me neither!

Yesterday my day was spent trying to keep a 6 yr old down ALL day because she woke up in the middle of the night and early morning with a sky high fever and shivering. That is not an easy task, let me tell you! She thought she was fine all day and tried to get up and play numerous times... needless to say she probably thinks her mommy is the devil for getting on her so much yesterday. She didn't run a fever the rest of the day (after early morning) so that was a plus.

Then in the afternoon... Addaline's eye started to get red and goopy (yes that's a word). Started when she got up from her nap around 3pm and by 5:30pm it was disgusting and I just knew a Dr's visit and pink eye were in order. So, we all got dressed at 5:30pm *remember we stayed home all day so we had no reason to be dressed and ready* and headed to Walgreen's Take Care Clinic for Miss Addaline and her eye. She HATES Dr's with a fiery passion and pretty much screamed until the exam portion was over and then she was the Dr's new BFF, my child the drama queen, wonder where she gets that from?! Come to find out, Addaline has her first ever ear infection, a double ear infection at that-go big or go home right? AND the infection spread to her nose and eye causing a runny nose and say it with me 'PINK EYE'. So I'm home another day today with the 2nd kiddo who is still sleeping and I'm enjoying every minute of the silence. She has to be away from daycare for 24 hours so she'll be OK to go back tomorrow thankfully. Macie was able to go back to camp today so it should be a little less hectic here trying to keep her down and resting.

Here is my sweet baby eating some cheese with her right eye almost swollen shut. By the end of the night my husband said she looked like a boxer had gotten a hold of her and punched her in the eye =( Hopefully this is our one and only bout of ear infections and pink eye (wishful thinking I'm sure)!!
