Mine does. This is a new thing and it bums me out. I really didn't think tantrums started until they got a bit older, but this is classic tantrum behavior. It stops the SECOND we do something entertaining.
Also? Jeff brought a cold home a week or so ago. We thought it was allergies at first, but eventually had to admit that it was a cold. Edie is now congested and yesterday it made its way to me and I now have a terrible sore throat and runny nose. This means we are missing Kristin's birthday dinner tonight so as not to get everyone else I know sick. BUMMER.
Another thing? The weather is lovely and I feel like we can't fully enjoy it. This is truly the most perfect gardening weather and all my pots are just begging to be filled with goodies. But I feel irresponsible spending a bunch of money on flowers and herbs when I just quit my job and am trying to extend my leave as much as possible. I did take Edie to the nursery yesterday afternoon in her Moby wrap, facing out. She loved looking at all the plants and we treated ourselves to a few cheap strawberry plants, but not nearly as many as I would have liked to fill my strawberry pots.
And speaking of tropical fruits - we started Edie on solids this week and she was real luke warm on the whole experience. I thought she would be thrilled to be eating with the adults, but she more or less hated the pureed mango we fed her on Wednesday. An the sweet potatoes today. Which was inordinately disappointing for me.
Lastly? Jeff took a face dive at a concert last night and spent half the night in the ER getting stitches in his chin. Lack of sleep+being too hot+dehydration = Jeff trying to take a nap on the Showbox floor. He essentially blacked out (note: do NOT refer to it as fainting as this is apparently very unmanly). He looks super hot today, sporting stitches and a giant scrape on his cheek. Also, this meant that I was on duty all night with Edie who woke up 7 times. She'd actually shown so much promise Thursday night, waking only twice - so last night was a disappointment on a number of levels... to say the least. Is it wrong that I'm fantasizing about chugging NyQuil and then nursing Edie to sleep tonight? I won't do it! But still... tempting. Very tempting.
I know it's all temporary and that in the grand scheme of things, life isn't so bad. But what can I say? I'm bummed out.
