Ah, yes, don't we all just love the smell of the doctor's office? Today was actually a planned visit for LP, it was to recheck her ears and eyes. And...she still has an ear infection. And her nose is congested. So tonight she will start a new round of anti-biotics and a decongestant. Yay for us!
And just so we don't miss the doctor/patient experience too much, I have an OB visit on Monday and LP has yet another recheck on Tuesday. There will be no problem using up all of our fflex-spending account $ this year!
I feel really bad for my little baby. She has been a bit cranky lately and not interested in putting her diaper on. We thought she just liked running around naked, but maybe she doesn't like laying down because it makes her ears and sinuses hurt? Who knows? To be honest, her nose hasn't even been running, I guess that is the difference between "congestion" and "snot".
Speaking of noses...
After the doctor we stopped at Stew's, our local the grocery store. They always have lots of free samples and the lobster bisque they were handing out in small cups was particularly excellent. As I was strapping LP back into her car seat after eating our way through the store, she starts rubbing my nose, "Nose! Nose!"; me: "Yes, baby, that is mommy's nose." Then I looked at my reflection: there was lobster bisque on the bridge of my nose! Lovely. No one said anything to me! One woman talked to me and LP for several minutes by the salad bar (2 minutes after consuming the bisque sample) and the cashier that checked us out never said a word.
To further my food-related misery, LP hit me in the head with an unwanted piece of honeydew (off of previously discussed salad bar) and then threw her yogurt-covered "schpoooon!" at my pants to close out her lunch. Ah, the joys of motherhood.
