I was going to write a lovely blog today about all the things I love and adore about Silas, but after a week of him being a total grump, I’ve forgotten those things. Haha, no I haven’t. I’m just not in a mushy mood this morning. As I type this, Silas is having a little tantrum. He wanted to touch the buttons on the microwave and I said no. So he flipped, that was a few minutes ago (at least he obeyed though, right?). I try my best to ignore tantrums and it usually works. I think he’s done now. There’s something really disturbing about Silas when he gets mad though. He smashes his head on things. Hard things, soft things, daddy, me, etc. As I was starting this he was smacking his head on the desk over and over. Apparently this is rather normal behavior but it’s kinda terrifying. I usually ignore that behavior as well, perhaps put on his favorite music that relaxes him and maybe rub his head. I do not ignore it when he does it on me, he gets put down and he can do it on the floor. Since this has been such a bad week he’s been doing it rather often, he’s usually pretty good with calming down quickly, I’m really confused as to what’s going on or changing in him. I hope it’s just teeth and he’s going to go back to my easy-going little peach that he has always been. Lets hope this happens BEFORE our flight to Manitoba next week. Lets also hope that this new habit of waking up at 6:30 goes away too…a few week ago it was 7:30 and a few weeks before that it was 8:30….you can see I’m used to a more luxurious lifestyle. WOW, the song just changed and Silas FLIPPED!!! Ahhhh what’s happening to him? It’s just a song!! My poor boy 🙁
I’ve decided that I absolutely HATE fridays. It’s the end of the week, mommies are at the end up their ropes and daddies just can’t seem to get home soon enough. I actually managed to make an amazing shepherds pie (the best I’ve ever had) and a chocolate cake which I made WAY too much icing for, there’s the same amount of icing as cake. Brent though it was lovely though. Anyway, tantrum pants is back at it, the song changed again and he was headbanging on my chest. Time for the music to go off and Silas to sit on the floor. I wish Daddy wasn’t at work today. Now I’m past the end of the rope. I think it’s time to go to the walk-in and rule out ear infections.
Just got back from the Doc and he says it’s an ear infection. I’m sad. This is our first go with antibiotics so wish us luck. I made sure he was totally sure that Silas needed them. I hate them AHHH. Anyway, time to give the first dose.
