difficult child was going to spend a couple of days with a friend of mine, but she really wanted to be home. She has a cold and allergies. She went to the doctor with me yesterday and the doctor rx'd nasonex and singulair. difficult child came to me tonight complaining that her ears were hurting and her nose was running all day (but only at school so she has determined that school is what she's allergic to ). I told her we could use the numbing drops for her ears that her pediatrician doctor rx'd 2 weeks ago, use the nasonex, a decongestant to help the drainage and then take her singulair and her lexapro. (Between her medications and mine, it wouldn't take much to convert our house into a pharmacy.) By the time I finish saying that she's falling on the floor cause her ears hurt soooo baaaaadddd. Even the outside of her ears hurt. She spends a good 5 minutes on the floor. Honest to God, you would have thought she was dying. I finally asked her what she wanted me to do. I offered to cut her ears off...told her it was an option...she may not like it, but it was an option. She stays on the floor, so I put the ear drops away. Then I get yelled at cause she wanted them. So, she finally lets me put the eardrops in. She spends another 5 minutes or so worrying over the nasonex, but finally uses it (tells me...I can breathe now, Mom! ) She gets her pudding for the other medications (she takes them in pudding...makes them easier to go down). This whole ordeal lasted a good 30 minutes. Then she comes to me and says, "Now my chin hurts!!!" She's one of a kind, my baby girl!
