So, I had planned to tell you about going to the fair on Monday. It was fun. I'll show you some pictures later. But, that's not what's on my mind tonight. This week has been mostly rotten. After pumpkin picking, our attitudes (both Levi's and mine) took a serious nose dive. Tantrums and whining are at an all time high. The drama!!!! Levi is compassionate and loving and sweet and all sorts of wonderful, but he is also extraordinarily high maintenance. And, since Sophia's 5th week that aspect of Levi is outshining everything else. Yesterday, I thought maybe we were back to normal, but today proved me wrong. I'm trying to remember that ALL things must end....so surely this too will pass....surely.....right?
Ugh. In the meantime, I'm operating on very little sleep (thank you, colic.) and my ability to be a kind, patient, and compassionate mother is being seriously tested. Also, I am failing...regularly. Double ugh. I suppose it would be unacceptable to hang him up by his toenails and leave him there? Yeah. I thought so.
