Not so mysterious behavior
Nine kids. I have never had kids who have been so plagued by ear infections as the youngest two have. Ingrid, bless her heart, has the two yuckiest, red ears I have ever seen. That explains a lot. I took a peek at them at the doctor's office and they looked pretty blood red to me. I am not expert but have seen what a normal ear looks like and that is so NOT what I saw. Sigh. I suppose this kills my pride of having kids who don't struggle with these things. She spiked a fever and was laid out this morning and still is fighting the fever even with ibuprofen. I guess I feel like I should have known something was up from her basic behavior. It brings back memories of encouraging kids to eat who actually ended up losing their cookies. There was a reason they wouldn't eat. There was a reason SHE wouldn't eat which didn't include the losing cookie part but still, she was pretty miserable. Sigh. She did sit still for many a book today. That was good for us both I think. Praying she feels better in the morning.
