Did I mention to you guys that Piper got ear tubes a little over a month ago? Seriously, my life is a tornado and I can’t remember what pieces of furniture land on the blog and what doesn’t.

So . . . after about 3.4 billion ear infection, little Pips got ear tubes at the beginning of June. We really thought that that was going to be life changing. That’s what everyone told us. That the crying in the middle of the night would stop . . . . but it didn’t.

You guys.

She went back to nursing in the middle of the night. She’s 15 months old. This is absolute insanity. It’s like she’s a newborn again.

So we went back to the ENT this past week and thank god she didn’t just write me off as a crazy mom. She believed me that life feels insane because Piper won’t sleep . . . or really eat. You guys. A toddler who doesn’t sleep and doesn’t want to eat makes for a tired, cranky, and hangry baby. It’s ugly up in here.

So they did a scope (i.e. we tortured her by sticking a camera down her nose) on little Piper and they found out that she has a chronic infection. And suddenly the reason she’s been such a hot little mess made sense. She was put on antibiotics and she is sleeping just a teeeeeeenie tiny bit better, but she seems a little happier! Hooray for small victories and here’s hoping it continues.

Why am I sharing all of this with you instead of some hilarious story? Because I am literally so tired from life right now that it’s just a good time to be real. And there’s nothing else my brain can come up with.

Lol!

    Hopefully all is MUCH better with your little one by now! I certainly feel for you!

    These bars sound absolutely heavenly. I have a question about the recipe though (I may just be tired myself and my brain quit for the day). Do you add the root beer extract to the 1/2 cup you took out or do you add it to the main part of the mixture? Thanks for the help AND the great recipe!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Yup, you mix it into the larger amount. The 1/2 cup you pull out is just to give it a fun swirl on top. And you were totally right, that was confusing. I fixed it :)
