I took the day off again yesterday as hubby and I brought Dash to the peed to have his left eye checked and then the peed referred us to an EENT. Anyway, turns out it was bacteria that infected his eyes so he was prescribed an anti bacterial eye drop which is the hardest to administer to an 8 month old baby who just want to grab it when he sees me holding it over his eyes. But his eye looks better already although this morning when he woke up, there was still secretions coming out. Hopefully this disappears soon. I really hate it when my kids are sick. It's the worse feeling in the world. I am glad I was able to spend a whole day with the kids again. I got to bring Josh to school ( I am rarely able to do this, which sucks, I know) and I was able to pick him up. I so love the reaction of Josh when he sees that I am the picking him up. His eyes just light up. Love love love his reaction. In the afternoon, hubby and I took the kids to the park. It was Dash's first time on the slide, looked like he enjoyed it. He must have had butterflies in his tummy hahaha.
Josh turns 5 in 17 days. 5!?! Eeeesh. This is what I have been dreading, another year older. Last night, I asked him "Hey Josh, how old are you going to be on your birthday?" and he says " I'm turning 5! Mom, I can't wait to be 20." And I asked him "Why?" and he said "Because I want to be a big brother to Dash." And I said, "But you are his big brother Josh, no matter how old you are" and Josh stopped to think for a while and said "No, I want to be a big big big brother. Bigger than I am now."
Oh no kid, I don't think you'd want to be 20. Don't equate age with size please. Haha. But of course I didn't burst his bubble.
Kids say the darnest things.
