end of my...tether

So this week has been a trying one to say the least. And it couldn't be coming to an end any sooner.

On Tuesday Theo woke up with really gungy eyes, so I rang up the doctors and got an appointment for the afternoon, the doctor said he had 'sticky eye'...is that a true medical term? Anyway, his eyes are extremely sticky, crusty and pussy. We got some eye drops which seem to be helping, but his eyes are all swollen and sore. He also had bright green snot dripping down his face, all the time.

But he's pretty ok in himself, not really acting ill, which means he his still full of energy, but as he is leaking from his eyes we can't go to any of our usual playgroups to try and expel that energy, so we've been stuck inside most of the week, slowly going mad. He seems to be extra naughty because of it. I know he's just doing things so he can get attention when I'm trying to have a moments rest, and I'm trying hard not to get angry or raise my voice at him, but gah he is really pushing it today! I don't want to be one of those mums who just yells at their children and constantly says no, but sometimes on days like today, when I feel rough myself, have had a little amount of sleep the night before my patience seems to running dry. And you know what I keep hearing in the back of my head...it's only going to get worse.

If anyone finds my sweet, happy non tantruming baby boy, can they bring him back please? There seems to be a monster in his place...
