drum, drum, drum, infected drum

Argggg...........does mommy guilt ever quit? I let little brick #2 swim without ear wax/plugs on wednesday. He hates the wax, I am lazy, it seems a a logical conclusion. Wednesday is the day little brick #2 decides he will go under water all by himself(he got tubes in feb.) and under again. and again. So when we got home I thought I was being a good momma and did what I was taught at camp kachina in the early 90s, I dropped rubbing alcohol into little brick #2's left ear OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he screamed. and screamed..........evidently alcohol travels thru ear tubes and lands directly on the brain. He woke up from his nap with gunk in his ear, ewww...... After a LATE(thank you for staying, dr!) afternoon appt today we are good, we got some antibiotics, ear drops and more wax! Little brick #1 really wanted to talk on the phone tonight, we called Grammy, Poppy, Cousin Sarah, Aggie Sarah, LauraP, Granny Bailey, Jaci and several other folks, only no one was answering their phone tonight.........and #1 isn't too good at leaving messages yet.....however, she did want to press one tonight......we are learning! So, call us back! Lots of love from texas!!

Who would've thought that pouring alcohol in our babies ears would be bad?! Don't worry Brick mommy. This Signs Mama would have done the same.
