Only 17 More Years of This...

You know your 11 month old son is feeling better when he's back running around the house screaming like Howard Dean...


You know your son is feeling better when his Doppelganger comes out and becomes the Cheerio Bandit again...

You know your son is feeling better when he starts ripping them in his high chair with a very emphatic AAAAAAAAH afterward!!!!

You know your son is feeling better when he doesn't want you to hold him anymore...

You know your son is feeling better when he finally gets a taste of his formula that he hasn't has in a few days and guzzles it faster than Daddy drinking a beer with only 3 minutes left at an open bar...

One question though-

Why the hell has he become such a cry baby since he's been sick???

He seems to have become quite sensitive since his illness. From leaving him alone, to what he wants, to what he sees, to what he hears, to whatever... He's never really been like that before. Maybe someone out there can help me with this.

Is it because we catered to him and for the first time he got a taste of the good life?

Is it because he is still feeling a bit down, but won't admit it?

Is it because he wants to be independent but knows he needs us to survive right now and he's frustrated?

Is it because he can't reach the top shelf?

Is it because someone tipped the medical staff on how great our son was and somehow drained all the angel out of him and really put cry baby juice in the I.V.?

Is it because he knows his 1 year birthday is around the corner and he's upset that he's starting to look his age?

Or is it just because he's a baby and this is just the beginning of things to come?

My little ones (5 and 3) are never themselves when they're sick. The kinetic boy (the 5 year old) is content to just lay in bed and the 3 year old sweetheart girl is a demanding little lady.

Byaaaaah!

what is happening in 17 years?

In 17 years I no longer legally have to take care of him anymore.

Thats only if his angel juice doesn't replenish or if he turns into Jeffrey Dahmer...
