Small disclaimer (that could be a whole blog post by itself): Just because my child does something that seems rude doesn’t mean I’m not teaching them. Don’t judge a parents parenting based on one moment you witness of their child. We can teach all we like but they will mess up because they are learning hence the word ‘teach’.
So Caelum had pink eye last week and I had written a blog about it. Well his actually got worse and lasted over a week. This is 9 days of waking up after each sleep with his eye crusted shut, him crying ‘bloody’ tears and his eye being half closed and swollen, and him being grumpy and uncomfortable.
Come to find out a mother at the in home day care he attends had taken her child to day care the day after being diagnosed. It hadn’t even been 24 hours since antibiotics.
I know it’s hard when your kids are sick and you have a job but that comes with being a parent. I missed work last week and he missed day care (but I still had to pay).
He was put on stronger eye drops along with oral antibiotics and was told if not improving in 2 days he would need to see an ophthalmologist. Thank goodness it improved.
When your kids sick do what you can to keep them home.
