and is your child tucked in?
Mine is, but sleeping NOT!! She's not quite figured out
that "tucked in and good night" means no more stuff... no more drinks,
no more books and no more trips for Mommy up the stairs.
Gentle reminders don't work, consistent patterns aren't working..ARGGGGGGHHHHH...
The housemate was kind enough to remind me that we went through similar challenges when zagatto
went on the last outage, which were resolved after a couple weeks of
consistency. All I can hope is that the same pattern reigns
here. At this point, she's shouting down the stairs "I'm thirsty,
I need some milk". I am studiously ingnoring her. Shortly
she moves into a singsong voice with the same chant.... eventually I
will get irritated, either cave in and get her a glass of milk, or go
up and explain to her (AGAIN) that when I asked her before I tucked her
in, if she needed anything else before bed that included a glass of
milk, and that I am not bringing her one now because she has been
tucked in and it's bed time.
Alternatively, I have taken the gate down, and she can make her own way
to the bathroom for a glass of water, and tuck herself back into
bed..... which appears to be the option she has chosen as I hear her
footsteps cross the hallway....
The insurance crew is due here by 9am tomorrow morning, and Katina is
due at the Pediatricians by 10:30. Hopefully we'll have
results. Her temperature has been down all day, and her behaviour
is back to normal. Frankly I'm thinking she has an inflated
allergic reaction to mosquito bites that pushes her fever up.... I'll
have to keep track. But I'm glad they took the tests and if all
goes well, she'll be back at DayCare by noon and I can hopefully get to
work. I hate being off like this...
So... I'm wrapping up to go draft an affadavit....
