Yesterday Roo was super duper fussy.
So much so that I was freaked out.
She fussed from 12:30 until 2:00 (nap time). At first I chalked it up to the fact that she woke up early and sometimes when she's really tired, she's really fussy.
I tried everything in my power to get her to take a nap. I cuddled her, I bribed her, I tried ignoring her... Not a damn thing worked. Finally, I called in the big guns.
I recruited Daddy.
He tried to calm her down, he even took her outside to see the fishies in the horse trough.
This is just pissed her off more.
Her crying wasn't just a simple "Wah."
It was a "Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh-hiccups-hold breath-wahhhhhhhhh!!"
The kind of hysteric crying you do over your 12 year old boyfriend who just broke your heart.
But I have to admit, she was breaking my heart b/c I had NO. CLUE. how to calm her down.
We ended up calling the doctor and he penciled her in right away when we told him she kept shoving her fingers in her ears and crying more.
Turns out she has a S.M.A.L.L. ear infection. So small that he was surprised she was this fussy. She also had a small fever (which since has gone away).
Poor child was in a rough spot.
After her visit to the doctors the fussiness went away and only fussed a little bit when we broke out the rectal thermometer to monitor her fever.
The good news is that she takes her medicine without fuss and is happy spending the day inside watching cartoons. In 10 days, she should be back in fighting (and fussing) shape.
