I found out today how much I am needed in the office. The financials are a disaster, no one knows how we’re going to integrate the three databases that we are planning on purchasing, and training/quality control for the action network fell through the cracks. The good news is that I’m busy and I love it. The bad news is that I wound up staying late and being late for dinner with the in-laws.
Justin was fussy today. DH called because Justin had been crying for an hour and “wasn’t hungry” and nothing was working but I had to note that he wasn’t hungry. That’s DH’s first assumption when Justin fusses and it’s hard to get him past it. I reminded him that Justin just had his vaccines on Monday and this could be some of the after effects. Maybe he should give him some of the baby Tylenol. DH said that he wasn’t sure that was the problem and didn’t want to dope our kid up.
He continued to fuss most of the evening and nothing really worked. Finally DH put Justin on a pillow and gave him a pacifier. As Justin calmed down, DH informed me that this was what had worked in the afternoon. Then why for the love of all that is holy didn’t we try that first??!!!! It would have saved my hip from going out from walking him around the house (another good strategy for calming him).
Oh and I think we have thrush. Both of us.
