8/52 and the never ending ear infection

So we've all been sick, yadda yadda yadda, but Lissy has been a MONSTER for the last month. Just in the most sour mood and so frustrating. Seriously, I have been battling with some serious depression/anxiety because of it. We took her to the doctor early this month for an ear infection. Before she was even finished with the antibiotic, she starts getting sick again. So I took her back in on Friday and, low and behold, another one. Different ear even. ARGH! I am so sleep-deprived and just have no patience anymore. :( Not to mention that my oh-so-good-at-taking-medicine daughter of mine only likes Amoxicillin, NOT Augmenten, so I have to literally force the stuff down her throat. 

But on a good note, report cards are done! And I feel justified in planning on a laid back work week. 

Onto this week's photo...
Week 8/52: Simplicity

With all the chaos going on around me this week, I was feeling a bit nostalgic for the pre-walking, "simpler" days, where I didn't have to chase her all over the house cleaning up after her. I have hung onto these shoes. Plain white, boring, first shoes. There's just something about them. They're not exactly "cute." But  I just love them...simply.



  1. We went through this with Livie- rounds of anti-biotics, only to have it come back. They wanted to remove adenoids and put in ear tubes, which I did not want to do. Thankfully my friend told me to take her off all dairy and sugar for a month- and it totally worked! No more ear infections or runny nose. When I tried introducing cheese back in, instant runny nose. So when Ava did the same thing as a toddler, I pulled her off dairy right away, and it cleared up immediately. It's definitely worth a try with Lissy. :) xoxo

  2. Thanks's worth a shot! I think they're planning on tubes already at this point. They worked with Miles, but I'd rather not do the adenoids and tonsils and all that.
