Today’s post is an apology.
It’s an apology for not taking you to the doctor for the past week when apparently your eardrum was bulging. (I had no idea.)
It appears that you haven’t been sleeping well and have been grumpy because you have more than a cold and a runny nose… you have your second-ever ear infection, and it’s a doozie.
I don’t have a ton of photos of you for this Lila Lunes either. Why? Because you’ve been sick off and on (mostly on) since you started pre-school and sick toddlers don’t like their pictures taken.
And, as a general rule, most people don’t like to look at sick toddlers. It makes them feel badly.
So, at this point you are on an antibiotic and a series of nose sprays that you HATE but suffer through so long as I reward you with M&Ms. (Oh, you’ll do anything for an M&M.)
You’re starting to show that you’re happy again.
See? You’re putting meat on your forehead.
And you’re smiling. And laughing. And hugging me.
And playing again.
Through all of this, we learned a valuable lesson: when you’re a grouch, there’s a reason and you need some help.
I promise to do better next time.
