Does your child's eyes...?<br><br>

Childrens?<br><br>
And also, dh claims he doesn't see a diff in the before and after pics. Do you see it? Thanks!

Grammar's perfect. What's the deal with going dairy free? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

I see a difference in the eyes. The circles seem more pronounced in the first photo.<br><br>
You could say children if you wanted, but child is fine.

Yay!<br><br>
She had these huge puffy shiners under her eyes, and everyone would ask me what was wrong with her. One day I went in for a prenatal and my midwife said, "Have you considered taking her off dairy? She has 'milk shiners' under her eyes." I kind of ignored it, and then later the same week I was at the chiro with her, and he said, "I think your daughter is allergic to milk. I can see her eyes are really swollen." I was like, OKAY FINE, I get it! I'll get her off milk!<br><br>
She used to drink tons. Now she drinks soy. I've noticed a difference, she doesn't have dark circles anymore! But dh says he doesn't notice. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

Yes, the grammar is correct. It's definitely "do."<br><br>
"Eyes" is the subject, and the word is plural. If you turn the sentence around so it's a statement, not a question, that might help:<br><br>
Your child's eyes do look like this.<br>
or<br>
Your child's eyes does look like this.

Actually those suggestions are both incorrect grammar. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br><br>
Leave it as is. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Very interesting about the milk allergy. We don't have an issue with that, but good information. I've never heard about "milk shiners" until now.<br><br>
