I’m sure I’m not alone in this. You know, your kid never sleeps… until you go to someone else’s place. Or they don’t eat certain food… until its served by someone else.
DestructaBoy has been sick for days. Coughing, snotty, vomiting, diarrhea, high temperature, a rash, clingy and lethargic. Until we get him to the doctor of course, then he perks up, smiles, babbles and tries to play with the doctors equipment. The doctor looks at me and says in *that* tone of voice “Is this your first baby?”.
Translation “you’re paranoid and probably wasting my time”. He followed it by telling me that DestructaBoy is the happiest, healthiest kid he’s seen all day.
I didn’t bite his head off which I think is very restrained of me given how sleep deprived I am.
A Plunket nurse once said “your children will make liars of you” when similar happened and it seems like Murphy’s law that as soon as I complain about something to someone else they’ll do this.
So, on record, this is me complaining bitterly about no sleep!! Wonder if it’ll work…
