Baby still sick; we are still exhausted

The poor little guy cried from 10:51 until after 12:20 last night until he finally fell back asleep. He is bunking in with us in our room while my sister in law has claimed his room, formerly the guest room. We let him cry himself to sleep after he demonstrated an unwillingness to be terribly soothed. I kind of insisted on that over my wife's objections. I think it was for the best.

But the thing is, you see, I am so tired that, among other things, I even left my tie at home when I left for work this morning. Good think Brooks Bros. is still running their big sale.

This is not a good week to be tired. I have a dinner and committee meeting tonight -- first of the year, first with a new committee class, gotta set the right tone as chairman and have to drive the agenda. Tomorrow, a board meeting at which I will be front and center on a critical governance issue in order to resolve a sticky IRS tax situation that the organization is faced with. And then on Thursday, I am the MC at a dinner for 125 people. Sometime in there, I have professional responsibilities and a couple of other things to do.

Please let the baby sleep tonight. If not, shoot me now, please.

Ohh, I totally sympathize. Fortunately for ME, thus far, Babylove has sensed complete exhaustion/nervous breakdown on my part and has given me a chance to catch some sleep when I need it most.

Hope your little guy does the same for you. :o)

Well, if yer so busy then why are you the one trying to soothe the baby?

Babies don't make decisions. They cry for a reason. If cuddling him doesn't stop the crying then he requires something other than cuddling.

Food? Nah, he just ate a little while ago. Potty? Nah, he's dry. Lonliness? Nah, he's being held by a stressed out daddio with twelve-and-a-half other things on his mind.

Oh, wait...

That's when Daddy yells: "Mo-o-o-o-o-m...!!!"

He's still reading the Times, I see. :)

Hope things are looking up now.
