I am That Mom

I am THAT mom that postponed taking my daughter to the doctor when she complained of an earache and when we finally went to the doctor he couldn't see anything because there was so much gunk in said ear and it was so swollen. I am THAT mom who asked the doctor if my daughter was OK to go to school even though her ear looked so bad (he confirmed she was not contagious and Chatty really wanted to go to school) . I am THAT mom who got a call from the school nurse saying her daughter was in the nurses' office complaining of an earache and had large quantities of fluid draining from said ear. I am THAT mom who was told by the school nurse that her daughter spit in another student's lunch because she didn't like what they said to her ... yeah that would be me! I am THAT mom who dealt with a cranky kid with an ear infection all afternoon while trying to work from home and clean the house. I am THAT mom who is having a beer and watching college football!

I think THAT mom needs more than one beer. Hang in there!

Oh boy, rough day. Hope Chatty's feeling better. I agree about the one more beer - if you didn't have it last night, definitely have it today.

YOU ROCK!!! Her ear will be fine and your beer will be cold. It's the weekend now so enjoy what's left of it. Next time it's D's turn
