Hmm ... What else is new?
Oh! This will shock you.
Patrick has an ear infection.
I KNOW, RIGHT?
That never happens.
It's all so ... unexpected.
Actually, I don't know if he has an ear infection yet. He hasn't returned from the doctor, but there have been indicators:
- Clutching the side of his head while trying to eat
- Random yelps of pain
- Waking up in the middle of the night, screaming
- Yes, I am trying to bore you to death. (It means I like you.)
And then, this morning, Patrick got out his doctor kit and inspected Larry's ears.
(Which are fine. Thank God.)
In other mundane news about my family, I'm very excited about the teacher Gus got for Pre-K. She has such a great energy and way about her, and I think he'll really thrive in her class.
Apparently a number of mothers requested their daughters not be put in this teacher's class, because she has (gasp!) a "lesbian" haircut!
We O'Briens are just risk-takers, I guess.
Who knows? Next year we may even let Gus make friends with black people.
