Her Royal Itchiness

This past evening Hannah had an attack of the itchies, it was something awful!I've never saw a more miserable child in all my life. Between the after effects of the anesthesia (it always made me itch something fierce), the gauze wrapped around her head and then a polartec head band on top of it all...well I think that my head would be sweating too! Being a sympathetic Mom, I unwrapped her for a little while and rubbed the outside of her ears. I do have compassion for this poor child of mine and I was able to get her to stop crying. I know what it's like to be so itchy and unable to scratch, it must have been something awful to make her cry the way she did. Hannah and I have a new little joke between us, her latest nick name is Her Royal Itchiness, she seemed to get a kick out of it and it even made her smile (after all the tears were gone). And I have to let you all know that no amount of chocolate or ice cream can make the itchies go away...Hannah told me this.
