I actually knew when we got up this morning and decided to call the doctor that this is what she would say. It happens about twice a year now which is much better than every 4 to 6 weeks when she was a baby. After 2 sets of tubes and dozens of ear infections. I should have known last week when she didn't hear anything I said, but how do you know that they aren't ignoring you? You don't until they say the magic words..."my ear hurts". There is almost always not fever for her and for someone who can gripe up a blue streak about just about anything...she doesn't complain when she feels bad! Still trying to figure this kid out...9 years and counting.
On a funny note, I texted her dad while we were in the doctors office and told him she was wearing a mask. He asked me "what kind". I guess he was thinking she had on a halloween mask? Really? So I sent him a photo!
