So this morning at breakfast Danny was acting both cranky and devilish. At one point he was sitting at the table screaming at the top of his lungs for no reason whatsoever.
We tried ignoring him. but we do have a row house and thought it pretty unfair to the neighbors to keep ignoring, so we then tried cajoling and distracting him...you know, everything in the book.
Finally I looked at him and said (perhaps a bit crankily)
"Danny, are we going to have to start paying Jenni double what we pay her to put up with this kind of behavior????"
His face transformed into utter sadness and despair.
"NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!" he sobbed and sobbed until I scooped him up and held him tight.
So Jenni, sorry to let you know that Danny seems to not favor this suggestion.
Or maybe he thinks we should pay you TEN TIMES what we pay you now.
God love him.
Sigh. I shouldn't be so hard on our little lamb. He was awakened in the night by loud thunder which really shakes him up. Unfortunately I haven't yet figured out how to stop the thunder. No wonder he woke up on the wrong side of the crib today. Any suggestions on how to help with this fear gentle readers? -Monica
