Ear ache

There is something so special about being the only person who can make my little baby feel better.  Yesterday was my day to sleep in.  All of a sudden Jax comes in the room crying and tells me his ear hurts.  He was just whining and crying It Hurts! It Hurts!  I had never seen him like that before. My heart hurt for him.  I asked him where it hurt and he said his ear.  I asked if it hurt inside or outside and he said inside.  He just kept crying and putting his head on the pillow and rolling closer to me.  I felt so helpless but I cuddled him the best I could.  I picked him up and gave him some Tylenol hoping it would take away the pain quickly.  I rocked him as he cried.  Tony tried to see if Jax wanted him to hold him and Jax said no, mommy hold me, make me feel better. Once the medicine started to kick in, Jax looked at me, still crying a little bit and asked for some Scooby Do snacks.  I said, do you think that will make you feel better?  And he said yes (of course).  So I gave him some Scooby snacks and he was fine for the rest of the day.  What is funny about that is this morning, Tony said he complained about his ear a little bit and asked for the Scooby snacks again, not the medicine but the snacks.  I guess in his little mind that is what made him feel better, plus he gets a snack. :-)
