We Need a Little Christmas

So my three-year-old keeps asking me "when is it going to be Christmas?" Enough already! It's January 24th! I can't decide if this is better or worse than last year, when we had to listen to the recording of "doggies bark jingle bells" until well into March.

In Your Eyes

I thought toddler #1 had conjunctivitis but it turned out he only had an ear infection. He woke up in the middle of the night on Monday and his eyes were all goopy and he's yelling "I can't see!" Like he'd been struck blind. So I carried him in the bathroom and propped him on the toilet and went to get the basket of washcloths and then he slid off the toilet and fell on his head! So then he's crying even more and it took forever to wipe all the goopies out of his eyes. That was Monday and he's woken up every night since then unable to see as well and crying "I can't open my eyes, don't drop me off the toilet!" As if the two are somehow related and perhaps the cure for eye goopies is a swift blow to the head.
