2 birds with one stone....kind of

2 things we are not currently short of in this house are pink eye and coloring markers. See, 3 of the 4 have pink eye. Only BabyGirl remains white eyed (well and blue too, but that's normal). We also have every kind of marker imaginable and I think Curly's birthday sent the Crayola people into overdrive. We have Color Surge markers, Fancy Nancy markers, Princess markers, markers with dual tip, markers with fine tips, marker with fat tips, markers with paint tips and markers with stampers on the other end.

I have been cooped up in this house with pink eyed kid for days. And days. And days. I have been administering drops and breast milk to the eyes like you cannot imagine. And in an effort to avoid an abundance of TV, we have been coloring A LOT.

So today, Peanut found a marker and colored Babygirl's eyes while she slept in the bouncy chair. She was quite pleased with herself. I was less pleased. But she said "All better" when she finished, so I guess in almost 2 year old world markers to the eyes = pink eye remedy.

So now, Baby Girl should be immune to pink eye and I got to throw one marker away. Everyone wins!
