I was goofing around with a flashlight and my two year old, and happened to look in his mouth. OH my Goodness, his tonsils are all swollen, red, with little white dots all over them. Did he complain, or in any way identify he was uncomfortable? No. Thank God for being silly, or I would never even have looked in there. I'll be taking him for a strep culture in the morning. Question for one and all - why do I feel guilty when I take my kids to the doctor, as if I have obviously failed as a mother since I allowed a germ to infect my child. I get so nervous when I take kids in to the doctor. I hate that. When does the self assured part of aging kick in?
