Her tears leave my cheeks wet.

I had to carry my daughter to the doctor this morning with an earache. The doctor couldn't see her drum so he had a nurse attempt to flush the wax out of Ash's ear.

Does this sound pleasant to anyone else?

Ash took the first few squirts from this monster syringe like a champ, but by squirt four she was flinching. The nurse stopped and the doctor returned and gave the removal another \"shot\".

The crocodile tears started. She went first, I followed. The doctor stopped after two attempts. They removed enough wax to see that her outer canal was inflamed. We got our prescriptions, a hand full of tissue and flew through the automatic doors.
