I feel like I am stuck in a bad episode of Super Nanny.
Could it be the episode with the out of control tantrums?
Could it be the episode with the five year old that still uses a pacifier at night?
No, I have lived through the tantrums and the pacifier withdrawal. Those I could handle.
No, this episode finds the Yonekura household plunged into the harsh, cold reality of life with a jack-in-the-box. You know the type. Out of bed every few minutes for an hour or more with a whole lists of wants and needs and you-gotta-hear-this-right-now-before-I-forgets.
I am sequestered in the catch all/ computer room, waiting and trying not to lose my temper. The last thing we need right now while Sophie is sleeping so peacefully, so quietly is shouting and tears.
I wanna poke my head around the corner. I wanna open his bedroom door, but I am afraid of what I will find. At least, for now, he is in his room and quiet. Simple math, or is it wishful thinking?, tells me that :
In his room (plus) quiet (equals) sleep.
Now, how long do I have before his cold feet find their way into my bed ?
