Things are feeling at least a little better. I’ve caulked the tub, and bedtimes with Tadpole have improved. The “five-minute game” plan seems to be helping him stay on his bed and reading until he’s tired enough to go to sleep. Yay for our fabulous pediatrician! Tad even took a nap on Saturday for the first time in months. Which meant Roo and I got to take a nap. Saturday afternoon naps are glorious! Tadpole does seem to have caught onto our sneaky plan to call the new rules a “game,” though–every night he tells us, “but I don’t yike the five-minute game!”
In completely unrelated news, the telemarketer on the phone tonight wanted to speak with “the lady of the house.” Ummm….
a) in this house there are two “ladies,” and
b) I didn’t know anyone still used that phrase in a non-ironic way.
I’m working on a longer post about our upcoming trip to Italy, but thought I’d put this up in the meantime.
