I have lots of rage today. Almost all of it directed towards a small (but getting bigger) human being who apparently belongs to me. A small part of it is direct to M, who I love very much, but seems to only see the lovable fun side of our darling offspring. He tries very hard to understand, but until he has lived this life for 3+ years he really can't, no matter how well intentioned he might be.

It has not been a good week for C. He is so over-tired it is not even funny. The child who has not had a potty accident in almost a year has had three in two days. He can't complete sentences, cries if you even open your mouth, and dozed off while watching his all-time favorite episode of Sesame (gee, thanks A for giggling at the funny part).

I just want to shake him screaming "YOU HAVE TO SLEEP." If anyone has any thoughts on how to get a 3 and 1/2 year old to take a nap, feel free to comment. We would all be eternally in your debt.
