Reading the signs

Nigh on 2 posts ago I was talking about how good it was to be able to effectively communicate with Daisy and how I felt we were in a new chapter of this parenthood thing…yeah ok…um.

We are heading off for 5 days tomorrow which involves a 2 hour flight getting there. I thought I better get Daise checked just in case there was something wrong when we got there or whatever as I just pictured something going wrong and there being no doctor blah blah blah. Found out she had a raging ear infection. The doctor said she must be in agony with it. When she asked if she had been sleeping ok…well no…she said that might have something to do with it.

Perhaps I should have paid a little more attention to her a WEEK or so ago when she kept pointing to her EAR and saying OW! That might have been a clue. And I was about to start bad cop with her at night and let her cry it out – she wasn’t going to pull the wool over my eyes anymore! HA!

Poor thing. I feel terrible. Nominations are in for mother of the year and this performance could be worthy. And now…well now we have a plane trip where she will probably scream the entire time. At least she is on antibiotics for at least 24 hours before which may make a difference? Right? I am nervous. And guilty. At least there will be at least 7 people on the plane that we are related to that won’t stare at me too much. Anyway…happy holidays!
