So, this morning I took Morgan in for her 4 month checkup and was surprised to find out that she has an ear infection in both ears. She’s had a bit of a head cold: runny nose, a sneeze here and there. But she certainly hasn’t acted like a sick baby.
I haven’t decided if this makes me a good parent, that I have such a happy baby even when she isn’t feeling well, or if it makes me a bad parent for not seeing the signs that she was getting sick. Either way, she starts a course of antibiotics today that should clear things up pretty well.
Near the end of the appointment I’d grabbed a tissue and started to wipe away some of the snot that had started to pool under Morgan’s nose when the doctor laughed and said “She just rolled her eyes at you! I’ve never seen a baby roll their eyes like that!”
And then, as she turned to leave, she laughed: “She certainly is her mother’s daughter, isn’t she?”
I’m still trying to pretend like I don’t know what she was talking about.
