Poor Punkie – he really hates Mondays. And teething. And being tired.
Last night, Punkie didn’t sleep very much. It’s hard to say what was bothering him. He woke up 3 or 4 times earlier in the night and allowed himself to fall back asleep pretty quickly. If it were teething pain, I think it would have kept him up longer and we probably would have felt the need to give him some Tylenol. I wonder what was bothering him.
Then, he woke up for a long stretch at 3:00AM. I think THAT was his teeth. We gave him some Tylenol, but he was hopelessly wide awake by that point.
Punkie and I finished the night snuggling and trying to catch a little more sleep on the couch together, Punkie in the cushion* and me using the side of the cushion for a pillow. Essentially, Punkie whacked me in the head and pulled my hair for 2 hours while I tried to sleep a little.
When my husband came downstairs to join us after the whacking-and-hair-pulling-nap, Punkie didn’t give him the usual big, toothless grin. He really doesn’t like Mondays and he was off his game from the rough night we all had.
When my husband dropped him off at day care today, Punkie cried big tears. Poor guy – I wish I was there to comfort him. It’s days like these that I feel especially bad for not being there with him.
I called his day care room to check in on him – they said it was rough going at first, but he took a long nap and drank a bottle and is now doing great. I hope that’s true. I didn’t hear him yelling or crying in the background.
