Today, I’m breaking the “rules” and posting a video instead of a few pictures. It was taken on Tuesday, but I feel it a very accurate representation of our week at home.
This ^ is what happened every time I put my son down on the floor since Monday. Every. Single. Time. At first, I thought it was separation anxiety, but he doesn’t burst into melodramatic tears when I drop him off at daycare. Nope, he just does it when he’s at home and it is driving me bonkers! He seems to find it particularly annoying that I am unable to have him in my arms at all times and he is very good at expressing his annoyance towards me. It’s actually pretty funny (except when it’s been going on for half an hour), he’ll start by sitting there and looking me as he screams bloody murder. Then he’ll crawl towards me and hang on to my legs and continue to scream and cry if I don’t pick him up. I try to distract him, but the distractions are usually short-lived (although 5 minutes of calm are better than none).
Usually, his fussy periods last a week. We’re on day 5.
I will not survive this.
