Worried/ Blue

My little Wildman has an ear infection. This is our first brush with ear infections, as Supergirl has managed not to ever have one. But somehow, either through visiting with another child weekend before last, my sick co-workers or (irony) our trip to the doctor for his 15 month check-up last week, little man came in contact with some funk. I had it first (still have it, of course) and at first I thought it was a sinus infection, so I let him snuggle all over me last weekend. So I'm wracked with guilt that he might have picked it up from me. Worst Mother Ever, right here! So any advice y'all have about dealing with ear infections is more than welcome.

oh man, that sucks. i can vividly remember waking up screaming when i was only 2 or 3 from ear infections. although ear infections also meant the yummy pink bubble gum antibiotics when i was growing up.. :-)

Aww, thanks Alice! And I'm glad to hear that my kids aren't the only ones who think their medicine is delicious! I was starting to worry that they were going to grow up to be junkies. I swear, we practically have to hide the children's tylenol or they'd drink it straight!
