My kids are seriously draining me lately. All you out there ready for a complainfest? I cannot take them anywhere without them making a scene lately and I have no explanation for it. I suppose I could just chalk it up to then being boys, and I'm sure that's the comment that Diane will be leaving here in a few, but I need a better reason. Today I was at Joann fabrics and out of the blue Ethan decided he wanted to bite Cohen's hand, so hard that he left 4 big teeth marks. WHAT? Who are you? Cohen of course lost it, I don't blame the kid, it looked like it hurt, and I, while standing right next to the rack of very sharp scissors, wanted to grab a pair and shake them at Ethan - like, now let's see what you are made of kid!!...but I didn't...instead I put him in a shopping cart and parked him in a corner. I don't know what has changed in his head, but Ethan is constantly hurting Cohen for no good reason. It's like the jealousy that people talk about when #2 comes along has just begun. He never had it when Cohen was a baby. Why now?
Ethan's numbers have also been screwy lately and I can't get him back on track. They are hovering in the low 200's which hasn't happened since he got the pump. He spikes every night around 11pm for no reason. I have done all the calculations needed to figure it out and it's not working. So bugged.
Yesterday, I took Cohen to an ENT because the kid has had at least five ear infections since he was six months old. Of course, he recommended that he have tubes put in his ears. Anyone out there have experience with this? I guess it's just a quick outpatient surgery, but he still has to be put under. Freakkkkyyyy! I'm not a huge fan of toddlers on hospital beds. They always look like they don't belong because they are so little compared to the big beds. It will just bring back bad memories of Ethan hooked up to all kinds of monitors and beepy things. Nice.
