Last night Ben was showing symptoms of an eye infection. Sigh, it looked similar to the horrendous infection we encountered months ago. And sure enough, Ben awoke this morning with one eye swollen shut completely. He says it doesn't hurt but it looks like he was on the recieving end of a big fist. Poor little dude. You can only imagine how difficult it is to get drops in the swollen eye of a three year old who doesn't want you near him with a ten foot pole. After I sat on him and managed to squeeze a tiny bit of the drops into his eye I came in with the thermometer to take his temperature.
-"No mommy, don't poke me in the eye!"
Can you imagine?! Poor little guy, he was pleased to discover that I only needed to hold it in his armpit for a few seconds.
