Oh last night was a bad one again. He screamed and screamed. I could do nothing right but he wouldn’t volunteer any preferences. Just screamed NO! at anything I said. Finally I had to carry him screaming out of his room and sit in the dark in my room on the bed next to him until he finally drifted off around 10.
Then Sophie woke up screaming in the middle of the night which woke Ben up and he screamed hysterically for a long time. Until I desperately took him out the door and refused to go back into the house until he stopped screaming. I thought the shock of being outside might break through when nothing else I was doing or saying could calm him. He did stop screaming and then fell asleep in my arms in the recliner. I had to wait till he reached deep sleep before moving him. I’ve made the mistake of moving him too soon before.
I’m starting to think we might need to go back to the pediatrician to make sure the antibiotics really kicked the ear infection.
Tomorrow we’ll get out the toddler bed from the shed and see if having a new special bed doesn’t help a bit too. I’m thinking maybe new crib sheets too with cars and trucks…. if I can find any that aren’t super expensive. Target and Amazon are both pricey.
