Last week I gave myself a bit of a shock. kind of. After H’s lunchtime nap, she woke up, but one of her ears was covered in earwax, really nasty dark gunky stuff – I felt so bad, in an “ohmygodshe’shadanearinfection” sort of panicky bad mum kind of way.

So I cleaned her up.

It was only 10 or so minutes later I remembered we’d had Marmite for lunch, and actually, she’s rubbed her ear after eating some.

D’oh.
