Wildflowers and wheelbarrows
Brady took over her wheelbarrow. He has become very attached to it and pushes it all over the yard, transporting his treasures of limbs or dirt toys from one place to the next. I found the same wheelbarrow at a yard sale, for $10, last Saturday. I brought it home and he was so excited, it was like he got his first car. He told me the next day, "Mommy, my dream was to have my very own wheelbarrow. So this is my dream come true!"
The wheelbarrow now has it's own "parking space", outlined with rocks, next to his dirt pit. It gets lots of washing and shining and the wheels even get oiled. He asked if we could take it to Bernheim!! I love his little boy heart so much. Dirt under his fingernails and between his toes makes us both happy.
Last week was a long one, and this Monday started off alot like last Monday. I had terrible ear pain again but thankfully had my long awaited appointment with an ENT. The doctor said all the bacteria is killed off in my ear, good and bad, so now it is growing yeast and fungus. Lovely. He said this can be hard to get rid of and after cleaning it out, gave me an ear drop, used for athlete's foot, to use 3 times a day for 3 weeks. I also have a follow up appointment to clean it out again next week. Honestly, I am glad it's just yeast. After finally googling it because it has been a long time dealing with it, I was worried it was something more serious. Thankful it's just a nuisance and hopeful to finally get it better, even if it does take a couple more weeks. Ear pain like most pain, is no joke and sets my nerves on edge. It has made mothering harder than usual. I've had a hard time hearing and though you'd think that would be a good thing with 7 kids, it hasn't stopping the constant calls of, "Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!" Have a nursing baby to care for has been an added demand when I haven't felt well. I will be glad when this crazy fiasco is behind me for sure.
