Jocelyn: "But, Mommy, how can Robbie get pink eye when he's a boy? Boys don't like pink!"

We had an unexpected visit with the pediatrician this morning. Sometime between the end of last night's fundraising extravaganza and midnight, pink eye showed up in my little man. 

He's pretty miserable. None of us slept much last night as a result, and we're cuddling lots today.

If any of y'all have good tips for giving eyedrops to a little boy, I'd love 'em! We're going the whole having-him-close-his-eyes-and-putting-a-drop-at-the-corner-of-each-eye thing, but he still thinks we're torturing him. 


  1. The last time we had to give eye drops to Oliver it helped some if he thought he was doing it. So we would give him the closed bottle first and he would happily put it to his eye. Then it was mom/dad's turn. It still didn't go great, but better than pinning him to the floor while he screamed.

    1. I tried, and he said, "No, Mommy, you have to take to lid off." Ha! :) He's actually doing better than I expected :)
