Hope hope hope
This weekend everyone seemed a bit out of sorts. We went to see my Mom on Saturday and she was sick as a dog. Mark started feeling a bit under the weather and I felt just exhausted, like a rung out dish rag, but not really sick. And Noah… something is up with him. I hope it’s still the teething. The nonstop evil teething, and not the beginning of a new phase. Please NO. He has of late become more obstinate – letting out a little shriek if we take him away from something and whining more when he isn’t getting his way. And for the last two days he’s even been a bit tantram-tastic. We’ve had a couple of prolonged loud wailing episodes that included throwing himself down on the floor. Now I know he’s not feeling great because his sleep last night was piss poor. In fact it was one of the most sleep distrurbed nights we’ve had in a long time – so I’m holding out hope that the sleeplessness and whatever is causing the sleep disturbances is also responsible for his short fuse and emotional outbursts. And I am praying that it isn’t the dawning of a new day.
