Guilty Pleasure

Three days ago I noticed Jaliyah’s left eye was red underneath and in to the corner with a little puffiness. I instantly panicked because we have been going to Gymboree classes and figured one of those kids gave her pink eye. We washed our hands every 5 seconds and I got her into the pediatrician the next day to find out it was allergic conjunctivitis, not bacterial. Okay, so a little sigh of relief and was instructed to give Jaliyah some Benadryl for a couple days. I’m a little weary about giving Jaliyah medicine so I as a little iffy about it.

Normally our bed time routine consists of bath time, chill out time, cup of milk, brush teeth, lay down. We did all the normal things in our routine but added ‘take Benadryl’ right before the last hour of our routine –right before milk and brushing teeth, then we hang out, lay down, read a book –stuff like that. Well after brushing teeth, I ran to the potty real quick (yeah, I said potty) and the 2 minutes it took to do that and walk back in to the living room, Jaliyah was out cold. Asleep, so easily –for the entire night! Hmm…this Benadryl wasn’t such a bad idea.

Is that so bad? I was actually happy I decided to drug her this time. Not only is her eye infection gone, but mommy got two nights of uninterrupted sleep. Thank you Benadryl.
