Hey! Guess what we've got on tap for this weekend? It's super fun and it spreads like wildfire.
It's pink eye! Woo-hoo!
Poor Fiver is just streaming globs of goo from his swollen eye, and he is none too happy about the salve that we have to apply twice a day. I personally love the instructions on the tube of medicine: "Apply a thin ribbon of ointment to lower eyelid twice daily for five days." The part that they didn't have room to print on the teeny tiny tube is: "You may want to invest in some protective body armor because applying the thin ribbon of ointment to your freaked out child will be like trying to apply ointment to a rabid wolverine."
So we are raising the yellow flag of quarantine while doing our level best to keep Fiver's hands out of his eyes and off of the other kids. Especially the baby. I do not feel like applying any ribbons of anything to a four month old's eyes.
Maybe I'll just keep looking on the internet for more clips of movies with my new Pretend Boy Friend (PBF), also known as my Movie Boyfriend. Maybe I'll tell you more about him on Monday. Right after I break the news to Rob. And him. (Or maybe I should make you guess his identity?!)
Have a good, eye goop free weekend, my friends.
