Day 280 {pink eye}

Pink eye. Yuck. I got a call from the babysitter at work yesterday as Owen's right eye was running and by lunchtime it was half glued shut. So I made an appointment with the doctor. An hour later Ethan's left eye had started to run so I added him to the appointment. By the time Jason got the boys ready to go, Ava's left eye had also started to run. The diagnosis? Three cases of pink eye and as I type this I am pretty sure I've got it too. :(

Really not a big deal so far. Ethan likes getting the drops and would gladly take Owen's drops for him if you let him. Owen has the worst case with his eye still not totally open and the outside of his eyelid being a pink colour. Other than looking kind of rough he is still ripping around though.

It was a miserable day outside so the light inside wasn't the best. The light in this picture is hideous as it was a mix of light from the window and the pot lights but Ava and Owen were so cute playing with Ava's sunglasses and posing for me so I had to take it.

Ethan playing:

Did I tell you about the latest recipe I tried on Sunday? Mars Bar Squares. The verdict? Not bad. Very easy to make and the cleanup was much easier than traditional Rice Krispie squares because the pot wasn't sticky like it is with marshmallows. The result? Delicious but definitely not as good as the squares from last week. They were incredible.

Mars Bar Squares

4 Mars Bars
1/2 cup butter
3 cups Rice Krispies

1 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter

Melt Mars bars & 1/2 cup butter in a pot on the stove. Stir in the Rice Krispies. Press into 8 inch pan. Melt 1 cup chocolate chips with 1/4 cup butter. Spread on top. Chill in the fridge.

Here's one more picture from today. The boys are now playing and interacting with each other a lot more. This is their new game. One of them will lift their shirt up and the other will reach over and tickle him as he says "tickle, tickle, tickle". Then they laugh their heads off. It's pretty entertaining to watch.

And that was it. I'm calling it a night as my eyes are getting kind of sore. We're back to the doctor tomorrow to see how things are coming along and I'll find out if I actually have pink eye or if I am just a hypocondriac.

Thanks for looking!

Pink eye is not fun! I hope everyone gets over it quickly and that you don't end up getting it!

MonkeyBoy gets pink eye at least once a year. I'm a hypocondriac when he has it...I always feel like my eyes are itching too, even though they don't.

Hope it all clears up soon!

Pink eye is so contagious, so you probably have it too. Yuck! The drops should work fast though.
