Pre-Preschool, I shipped her off looking like this:

Pre School Pink Eye

Post-Preschool I got her back looking like this:

Post School Pink Eye

Damn kids and their germ sharing ways.

Share Animal Crackers, NOT PINK EYE!


  1. Oh no! That does not even look like the same child. What have those hooligans done with our moosh?

  2. Sorry! We didn’t try to, I promise! Do you still love me?

    Meghan’s last blog post..He said it!

  3. I hate pink eye. HATE IT.
    Trying to convince my kids that putting Neosporin in their eye will not kill them was always SO lovely.

    I hope Moosh gets better, soon!

  5. Ooooooh! Poor little monkey! That looks so painful. (I just got over pink eye myself but hers looks much worse than the case I had.)

    Jen’s last blog post..Ahahahahahahahaha!

  6. Aw, poor thing!
    I hate all those school germs…!

  10. One more reason to lock them up and never let them out of the house!

    Meggan’s last blog post..What did your kid do yesterday?

  11. Dude, you are going to hate me for this, but the incubation period for pink-eye is like 24-72 hours. The Moosh not only didn’t get pink-eye at school, she was highly contagious while she was there. She’s Pink-eyed Mooshie! Kick my ass at BlogHer.

    But as far as those other little monsters are concerned, consider it back-back-in-advance for all of the lice and strep Moosh will have to endure. Or a preemptive strike. Hoooya!

    But are you sure it’s pink-eye? Looks like some hooligan PUNCHED her. Monsters.

  13. oh yuck. Poor moosh. I HATE pink eye.

    Nic’s last blog post..Well now I’m just annoyed about Britney Spears.

  14. oh yuck. Poor moosh. I HATE pink eye.

  15. Oh no! We had pink eye 2 weeks ago. I wonder if they closed all the schools and if we quarantine our kids for 3 or 4 days while they bleach everything, if we would be rid of pink eye forever. Where else does it come from?

  16. My youngest had the pink eye this week too! We can’t let them smooch anymore… not until they are older 😉

    She is beautiful regardless!

  18. I’m just glad some little bully didn’t punch her. That’s what I thought at first. But get ready, this will be the first of many unwanted things she’ll bring home.

  19. Oh no! Poor baby.

  20. OH! Poor girl! Looks like she got it bad! 🙁

    Get feeling better sweet moosh. I think this gives you permission to not have to share your toys at school! 😉

  21. oh ewwwwwwwww. i HATE when that happens.

  22. oh that poor thing 🙁

  23. Holy Hell, that still exists? That is like wild fire! Kids are like bacteria dishes! They multiply and replenish the earth with germs! That is insane that it happened that fast. Poor little moosh!

  24. Gross. My kid got it at preschool too. Disgusting.

    Kimmie’s last blog post..Have you EVER?

  25. Poor Moosh! That is so sad. But I have to say, I LOVE that first picture. She is so FREAKING cute. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her curls. Good luck with the pink eye – and forgiving the stinking kids who gave it to her!

    Rachel’s last blog post..Ready to go!

  26. Aw. Poor thing!
    Mine got it last year like a week into Kindergarten, and pretty much looked just like that, but in both eyes. It was bad. The drops were worse.
    Torture, anyone?
    BUT, I will have to say that once we did start the drops, she was completely better in less than 2 days.
    Good luck!!

    Mandy’s last blog post..Let there be light – from a new chandelier

  27. Oh Poor Moosh!! We went through Pink Eye right before Christmas with all 4 of us. You and Moosh have my sympathies and far far away hugs 🙂
    There are homeopathic otc drops or drops from the doctor. The sooner, the better.
    Great kid drop trick (or squeamish adults)
    lay them on their back. close their eyes. put the drops in the corner of their eyes (tear ducts) when they open their eyes, the drops just roll in. 🙂

    I hope she gets better soon…and that you don’t get it.

  32. Poor Moosh! I hope she- and all her classmates!- feel better soon.

  33. wow.

    that might be the first picture i’ve seen of the moosh not smiling…the most memorable one anyway.

    get better soon moosh!

  39. AWWWWW Poor Moosh. I soo feel for her, because I too, am stuck at home with the red flaming eye of d00m!

    2 round of antibiotic eye drops have not cured it and I currently have the tinglings of cellulitis in my right cheek and the side of my nose. Bah.

  40. That is the saddest moosh face ever! Poor girl.

    Megan’s last blog post..Decluttering my file cabinet.

  41. Try the Similasan eye drops with belladonna . They are really soothing. We did the rounds this summer, and the eye drops helped. Of course, putting them in is no fun.

  42. That is terrible! Poor girl.
    I’m pouting too.

  43. Well you did say she likes pink…

  44. Pink eye was the bane of my existence when E was in daycare. I hope the Moosh is on the mend soon.
