Gawd this kid is funny when he's pissed off or upset. He sticks out… - Karen's Musings

Gawd this kid is funny when he's pissed off or upset. He sticks out his lower lip and sort of lets out these half sobs. Of course, then he goes into full-out screaming fits which isn't nearly as funny. But the screaming fits are interspersed with these bottom lip attacks. Like he's waiting to see if I'll pay attention. Heh. It's kinda hard NOT to pay attention. But I also can't seem to fix his lousy mood, so he's just going to have to work through it.

....

Oh look, he found a bag of new socks and a dump truck. He's over his lousy mood. Oh wait, I was wrong. He's back to being whiny boy. I think I shall have to dress him and take him outside. The shock of the cold should change his tune. On the other hand, it's likely to put ME in a bad mood. Well, that's no good. He shall simply have to remain in a lousy mood until he decides not to be.

Oh yeah, and it's all me. Seth is on his way to Orlando. The Rat.

Current Mood: tired tired, but amused.

This reminds me -- I have come across a couple of kids who go through a long period of thinking about crying before they actually get started on it. For up to half an hour, you'll hear occasional semi-petulant noises that sound like someone reading the word "wah" instead of actually getting into it. This accompanied by peiodic intakes of breath as if they're revving up for a full-fledged wail, but then they decide "not now" and wind back down. I find this amusing for some reason, even though it's nerve-racking when I'm the baby-sitter.

yeah, he does that sometimes. It's pretty darned funny. That's what he was doing this morning when he was sticking out his lower lip. Except that every three minutes or so, he'd let out an actual wail to see if I was listening.

How long are you and Julian going solo?? You want to meet me at Max's or Ben Yehuda's for an early dinner tomorrow night? Just us and the kid, Joel has to work late??

Seth is on his way to Orlando. The Rat.

Well, here in sunny Orlando it was in the mid 70's today. I think it's cooled down to the mid 50's by now, though... *grin*

Sorry we didn't see you on Shabbat, but I understand why you didn't want to wake Julian...

Actually, I hate Florida, so I'm not jealous. I called him a rat for leaving me with the kid. ;)

It wasn't just that I didn't want to wake Julian... I didn't want to wake me!! I'm teasing. He did wake up before Seth got home, but by the time I could have gotten shoes on him, shoes on me, him in his stroller, etc., it would have been so late as to not ebe worth it.
