Sometimes, despite our magic powers, there are things that even Mums can't kiss better.
Kit has been sick for the past week. He had a cold last week, which by the end of the week had managed to spread to his eyes and he had conjunctivitis (the worst episode he has had so far - his eyes are still sore from it). When the gunk in his eyes had cleared up and I thought he was on the mend he was sick, most likely from the mass of snot and goo he has been inhaling, swallowing! He seems much better now (apart from the redness around his eyes and a flair-up of ezcema on his cheeks), but there is no easy way to make a toddler with conjunctivitis feel better. In fact, I've spent the best part of a week tormenting him trying to wipe goo out of his eyes and keep his face clean. Sometimes kisses aren't enough, sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind.
