Head Dance Explained

You know how parenthood can sometimes make you feel real stupid? I know what you're thinking. How can I tell the difference? I must feel that way all the time. Though that may be true, we now have a clue as to why Alondra does the head dance (see earlier post). She has fluid in her ear canal and likely needs tubes. Our pediatrition suspected this because Alondra's ear canals are so small she's never been able to examine them as well as she'd like. She suggested we take Alondra to an ENT specialist. Suspicions confirmed. We're scheduled for surgery on May 2. It's a simple out patient procedure, and we've been through it with Matt. So no major concerns. The procedure does require anesthesia, so we won't take it too lightly.

Now even I can put 2 and 2 together. I bet that head dance causes all sorts of sensations with all that fluid in her ears. No wonder it's so funny.
