We had a really fun Easter despite 4 of the 5 kids having pink eye! Yes, really! Anne started it with a cold and passed it to the other 3 youngest. Seriously, I am so over having sick kids!
The doctor had previously told us that he recommended having her tonsils and adenoids out before doing the ear surgery because they were so enlarged. He was worried they might keep her ear from healing properly. We had opted to try the surgery without doing that first to save time, money and pain. She has never snored which her pediatrician and the ENT can't believe when they look her mouth.
I know all things work out and in the long run this is nothing, but still what a let down! The ENT gave her a nasal spray to try for 2 months and then if her tonsils and adenoids don't look better he recommends having them out this summer.
I put Brady down for nap time and explained that his paci had gone bye-bye because it makes him sick and is nasty. That really was my motivation for taking them away. Anne and he both seem to be sick off and on every other week, it's really getting old. I think the pacifiers increase the sickness and keep the germs alive. Brady is bad about getting Anne's paci since he isn't supposed to have one outside of bed.
When I wouldn't give him his paci he threw a fit and yelled at me. He eventually got out of bed, so I let him get up and gave him lunch. Round 2 went much better and he only cried a minute and then went to sleep. So far, we talk about it and he seems to be accepting the fact that there will be no paci tonight.
The following day my sister-in-law went with me, it was a good time together. My SIL grew up watching Lisa Welchel and was excited to hear her speak. The best part was she got to meet her and that was so exciting! The whole time spent with my family at the conference was a blessing!
Bedtime is about to happen here so wish me luck as I put my babies to bed without pacifiers!
