It has been a bad week. I could try to pretend otherwise, but I'm just too tired for that. After 3 nights of J not sleeping, and 4 days of J not eating well, I was sorely in need of an intervention. I needed to push the reset button on this child. I've been trying to go to the grocery store for 2 days, without success. Yesterday I ate a frozen shrimp appetizer for lunch, that is how bad I needed to go to the store. I was also at the point where I was yelling because I was so tired. He finally dissolved into hysterics around lunchtime yesterday, and took a 3 hour nap. And so did I. It was a turning point, thankfully.
I decided that we needed a mid-week intervention. And I'm very grateful that I don't have the kind of problems that can't be fixed with guacamole. So we ate out at Chipotle, which we never do during the week. I feel compelled to tell you that I have no connection with this establishment other than that of a satisfied customer. Maybe a little too satisfied, as in I crave it day and night. Makes me wonder what they put in that stuff. J ate his entire bol, and I felt that the reset button had been proverbially pushed. Last night was better, not perfect, but an improvement. Is this normal for children to overnight become picky eaters? He isn't just picky, he eats 2 bites and he is done. It's like he has no appetite for anything. He doesn't seem sick or ill otherwise. I'm utterly stumped.
If you have put up with this post thus far, you deserve something good. Here are the layouts from the I inspire me blog guest spot I did. I have some new on the table now, just need to stay away during a nap time to finish them.
Susan Beth said that her husband tells her that they were awake for 5 years with their child and he is still to this day tired. Isn't it a shame that we are all too sleep deprived to fully enjoy our young children? Good thing I've got lots of pictures.
