Dr. Mom tip

If your daughter complains of itchy eyes and you want to give her some eye drops, its important to look twice at the medicine bottle. Because “Otic” does NOT mean “Optic”. Ear drops in the eyes are not a good thing. After 5 seconds of screaming and thrashing(her not me), 2 minutes of flushing the eyes with water, 2 minutes on the phone with Poison Control, and another 10 minutes in the shower irrigating the eyes some more, all is well. Didn’t I just say that earlier about some virus I was glad my other kids didn’t contract? Stay tuned.

And the bad mother award goes to…
