Well, the bowl of M&M's is long gone; I've moved to mint chocolate chip frozen yogurt. Still, no relief from whatever is bothering Acacia. Any ideas? Diagnosis? Tips?
She's fussy and clingy during the day, as though she's tired. But she won't nap for more than one hour during the day... no matter how long I let her cry. Yesterday she did take a second nap (one hour) and I thought we were back to "normal". Then last night I couldn't get her to sleep... she watched the State of the Union address with me. No ice cream for either of us... chamomile tea instead. So, she stayed up until 10:30 pm and woke up at 7:30 am (actually at midnight, 5:30, and finally 7:30). She took a one hour nap from 11-12 today. What is a mom to do?!?!
Oddly enough, my bedside devotional book had this verse for last night...
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
Although I don't doubt she is actually getting in a few teeth, and may have a tummy ache or something... I think we may be dealing with a discipline/obedience issue more than anything.
Oh, God... please give me wisdom to do the right thing and courage to trust you.
