He cries every second of the day I’m not holding him so I try to take him outside as much as possible. He’s less cranky outside. Sitting in the grass. He’s still cranky in a stroller so that’s my favorite place to put him. Problem is with all the rain Colorado is getting the mosquitoes are insane. After just a few minutes outside there were too many mosquitoes and we were forced back indoors.
I’d been holding him, literally, every second of the day. It was the late afternoon by this time so I attempted to put him on the recliner while making dinner. I can watch him on the recliner from the kitchen. But after one minute he was screaming again. Back in my arms he went.
Allan was in Nevada then and my life (holding Everett alllllll day on top of everything else) felt like it was falling apart. I took the kids to McDonald’s and rented a movie (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) and got them food and we ate in the living room. This is as lazy as it possibly gets and thank goodness because I was seriously at the very end of my rope. A fast food dinner makes life a MILLION times more bearable.
