Pulling out my hair!
It is 9:49 and my 2 year old is still awake. We went to the doctors and he has tonsilitis and has had a fever of 103 this evening. The motrin seems to be helping, but for some reason he does not want to go to bed at night. I think it is Andy being gone again. I know he doesn't understand that Daddy will be back. He just sees that Daddy is gone again. Tonight was a very trying night. Both kids are feeling sick and clingy and with only one pair of arms that is really tough. It's times like this that I think adding a third child into the mix would be sheer craziness on my part! I am so tired, but he doesn't want to sleep. I tried letting him cry, which usually only lasts few minutes if he does it at all, but tonight he screamed bloody murder. I don't want the neighbors to be bothered. Now he is laying in my bed watching Dancing with the Stars. He's looking pretty sleepy. I think it's a combo of tylenol, being sick and screaming his guts out. Please go to sleep!!!! I'm sure Ava will wake up within minutes of him going down. That's just the way it works.
