No touch. NO TOOOOUCH!!!!
J and I had contemplated on taking EZ to the doctor but as all parents know, it's such a bitch to take time off work and drag your kid to a doctor appointment only for them to tell you it's a cold... you dumb, silly mom. So we held off thinking it would just go away.
Last night sealed EZ's fate with a visit to the doctor. He refused to go to bed, coughed all night, up earlier than the chickens, and rather than just lay with us and chill, he rolled all over our king-sized bed smearing snot on the sheets and then slammed his noggin' into my eyeball bone (that bone right below your eye, what's that called?). I seriously don't understand how people get punched in the eye and not cry. That is some horrible, face-numbing pain.
Come to find out EZ has allergies. Awesome. Aaand a sinus infection because we waited too long to treat his allergies and his sinuses got infected.
Now hold up. This is bullshit. If I took him in two weeks ago he would have just had a cold but because I waited, his face holes are filled with gunk and infected. I call shenanigans!!!
So after his doc appointment I stopped at Walgreens to pick up some toddler Claritin. I had no idea he could even take allergy medicine this young. I strap him back into his car seat (so he doesn't try to kill himself by running out in front of cars in the parking lot) and filled up his first dose of allergy meds. He thought it was water because it was clear. He took a huge glug and realized that it was not at all like water.
The sticky medicine started to quickly vacate his mouth. His hands flew up to scrap the rest off his tongue. Duuuuude! I ran to the other side of the car to get the wipes. My glasses fall of my head and the lens pops out as they hit the ground.
STOP GETTING THE STICKY ALL OVER THE PLACE!! YOU STILL HAVE TO GO TO SCHOOOOOOOOL!!!!! NO TOUCH! NO TOOOOOUCH!!
I wiped him down the best I could and tried to get him to take the rest of the medicine. He protested. Loudly. We have to give him the Claritin everyday until the first snow fall. AND for the next 10 days he gets an antibiotic morning and night.
Who said parenthood wasn't a complete joy?
