Is it or Isn't it?

I know its inevitable once your child starts school that he/she will get sick. Germs are everywhere especially in schools' classrooms. Andre is in his second year of pre-k (his birthday is in late June) so he's gotten colds/coughs before. When I picked him up yesterday I noticed his left eye was a bit red. My first reaction was that it was pink eye. But after talking to Andre to see how his eye felt, I dismissed the thought. He didn't complain of pain, itching, and there was no crusty sensations around his eye. I didn't know if I should take him to the eye doctor or not.

This morning his eye was still the same. I went with my mothers intuition and decided to call out from work & take him to see the eye doctor. Thankfully I have great friends with connections that work in the office that was able to squeeze me in since his doctor was in clinic today & not in the private office. She's great with Andre. She left the clinic to give him a quick look at.

No wonder I'm not a doctor because it turned out to be that pesky little conjunctivitis. But I did think it, right? So now Andre has eye drops to use for a week, no school for the remainder and DH & I are in need to call out from work for a few days. Andre is super thrilled that he gets to break some rules like playing with his DS, stay up past 8pm and just drive me a little more crazier.

Thanks alot Pink Eye!!

The kids! I started getting sick when my kids went to school...they were fine most of the time. I hope Andre's eye gets fixed soon. The drops usually work. I'm a new GFC follower from Where are you Wednesday? MO, USA! http://www.grandmasguidetolife.blogspot.com

Awwwww, hope your little one will get better soon! Oh and as for Rango, I have the same thoughts, it was a good movie for adult audience, not so much for toddlers or younger kids.

That is no fun though I'm sure your little guy thinks otherwise. When I started teaching preschool I was sick almost my whole first year. My second year I only had one cold the entire year. Hopefully he'll develop some good antibodies.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and following! I'm following back. Have a great day! www.ohsosavvymom.com
