Damon, the human crayon-maker!


Damon went for his annual check-up. He is healthy and growing well, but has been having a problem with his ear ever since last summer when he had swimmer's ear. I knew he had a problem with wax and dried up blood in there ever since, and he had started rubbing his ear in his sleep. I looked in it the day before his appointment and it was clogged. I asked the doctor to flush it. Damon was very brave as she stuck the tube into his ear. In an instant we heard a "CLUNK" as something fell into the bowl. The doctor blurted out, "What did you put in your ear?" Damon looks confused and just shrugs. I looked into the bowl and it looked like a 1 inch piece of a brown crayon. The doctor examined it a bit more and declared that it was impacted wax. The boy really couldn't hear me half the time! But now he has no excuse.

oh my gosh! That sounds like Josh. He always had huge clumps, poor kid. But he was never that brave. IT took 5 of us to hold him down..

Poor Damon, but now he indeed has no excuse!

OMG, the poor boy!!! That happened to Coli, too - she kept saying, "WHAT????" so I took her in & her ear was full of wax. Blech.
