It was the best of weeks, it was the worst of weeks. While we’ve been enjoying our recently found summer weather, Little Miss Maddie has also shown us just how strong her lungs can be in a very loud and shrill way. She has made her opinion of nap time known in no uncertain terms. Her thoughts: naps are over-rated. My opinion: I may go crazy unless she can start getting some more sleep in during the day.
Oh but the screeching! This girl can scream like a banshee, though I assure you she’s much cuter to behold. I’m just grateful that she typically reserves such noise for twice a day, to protest that which she believes to be blatant injustice.
But there is apparently more to the story than I first understood. It took me all week raging wars and constantly battling to figure out that the poor girl may be uncomfortable. Actually, it was Colin’s thought that her newly spotted upper front teeth, just beginning to break through the gum line, might be the problematic trigger.
Or it may be that she just doesn’t want to sleep.
Either way, I do hope that this level of screaming begins to find its way back to a more tolerable decibel.
