The gift wrappers, trimmings and all items that remind of Christmas 2006 have long been put away. The party of 5 is now back to the regular grind. January 3, first day of school, was a “dreaded” day for the boys who still wished the vacation wasn’t over yet. I could only commisserate… I felt it was just too soon.
As a sign of “protest”, their bodies (or eyes, to be more specific) developed some kind of reaction to the sudden change of schedule (from laid back to hectic), that a few days into the school week, both had the pink eye/sore eyes or what is clinically known as conjunctivitis!
The pediatrician prescribed two types of eye drops to be administered 3 times a day. It was effective. The infection didn’t worsen and contaminate any other member of the household. Thank goodness! They didn’t even have to stay home to rest… much to the boy’s dismay I guess…
