It’s Sunday. It’s Sunday already and Sunday again. I am just going to do a snapshot in the week of parenthood:
LM is a very passionate soul. She has definitely continued to develop her sassier side and I have gotten a lot of sass lately. Today, as a natural consequence, we didn’t go ice skating as we had planned. We are entering a new phase of, “how do we deal with this behavior?” and it’s unchartered territory for us. She has started to behave in a certain way for a certain period of time until she gets what she wants and then she is back to sassing it up. Longer term consequences may or may not make sense to her – I don’t know. We are having a treat-free week so we will have to see how that goes. I hate to be a consequence monster but she has responded really well to the limits today. I believe she (and all kids) needs them. It’s hard though.
LMJ has been so super sick L Her blood work is great (phew) but she’s been feverish for 5 days now (high of 104.0) and we’ve been to the doctor, the hospital, and the doctor again. We’ve switched antibiotics and once again we find ourselves in a position we never were with LM. I am sure she is fine and she just has a bad ear infection and virus, but it’s difficult to be in this place given what we’ve been through with her. I never even knew how healthy LM was, or how grateful I should be. She’s barely ever gotten a fever and then never over 102.0.
In any case – that’s parenthood this week. I look forward to hearing about yours!
