Keeping busy and trying to keep the momentum up to make sure that we are ready.
Jack has had a double ear infection, sore throat and a cold since the week before and one day home from school, some antibiotics, he began to feel better. And for the first time in his little young life, he didn’t get a good report at school. Acting out, throwing blocks, refusing to nap and just miserable. One day, he was described as a menace. Chris and I can not seem to figure out what seems to be getting him so upset and cranky. My top guess is that his top 2 year molars are coming in, as the bottom molars are in, but I just can’t be sure. I am missing my usual sweet, even-tempered boy.
Something has me wondering if he can feel the impending changes in the house. We talk about the baby coming home soon and read books about becoming a big brother, but maybe he is acting out for attention? I can see if it was just for Chris and I, but at school too? Any advice or ideas are welcome.
