Moody Babies don't like to "Nite"
My littlest, Violet, has been sick lately. It started with fever and diarrhea and has since morphed into a nasty little cold. Needless to say, she been very crabby. And to add insult to injury she hasn't been napping.
Last night at dinner time was tough. She was very tired and crabby and was prone to crying at anything. After ten minutes trying to decide what she wanted for dinner ("Mac & cheese?" "NO, THAT!!" "Chicken?" "NO, THAT!! *sob, tears, snot* "Potatoes?" "Yuhuh..sniff..sniff") Violet was finally sitting quiet and eating. Jasmine and her friend were getting their dinner so I quietly walked up behind them and whispered:
"Ok, nobody talk to or look at the baby. She is very tired and sick and is finally sitting still. I just want her to eat her dinner so she can go to bed."
I'm such an idiot.
"NOOOO! NO NITE! I DON'T WANNA NITE NOO NOOO!" I'm pretty sure the sobbing and screaming could be heard across town. "I DONE! NO NITE!!" More sobbing as the plate get thrown to the floor.
"Ok Violy, you don't have to. Calm down, calm down." I tried to soothe, but it was all over.
That, my friends, was a rookie mistake.
