It has also helped to know that "weird" is apparently the word-of-the-day for this other little boy and, from what we can tell, his comment towards Ethan was not malicious in any way. (Inappropriate, for sure, but not malicious.)
Who knew I could become so undone by a couple of four-year-olds?! That chapter was not in any parenting book I've ever read!
Today we're having a "lazy day", at Ethan's request. He woke up in the middle of the night with ear pain and, sure enough, he has an infection is his tube-free ear. His left ear still hasn't given up its tube, so after a quick chat with the ENT nurse about this new infection, surgery is still a-go for next Tuesday.
With that said, I'll leave you with some pictures in exchange for your prayers! Deal?

|Nothing says, "It's gonna be OK" like your four-year-old picking a flower for you.|
Thanks for checking in, and have a wonderful week!
