Piper Jane Month 9

Oh sweet Piper Jane, You have been sick lately with ear infections, colds, coughs, and runny noses. You are also sensitive to your immunizations. And have had a fever for a couple of days now.

 I remember when you were 8 weeks we took you to get your shots. You seemed fine until about two hours later.. We were sitting in Rubios, and all of a sudden you started not feeling well and you started crying. As I was gathering up our things to take you home your grandma went to the back of the restaurant with you to bounce and sooth you where there weren't people eating. I just about had our things gathered, and grandma comes back to the table to put you into your car seat. All of a sudden I hear an old lady (probably in her 90's) exclaim "shut that * baby up! We are trying to enjoy our meal"! I couldn't even believe it! Usually older women are so kind about young children and babies, but this one was not. I turned around and said "We are leaving right now, and she can't help it she just got her shots and doesn't feel well" The lady continued "well nether do I" and I retorted You must not have any children. You have the option to leave, and she is a helpless little baby. She mumbled a few more things to the effect of letting us know she wanted us out, and we left.
 That memory will forever be ingrained in my mind. I can still remember how I felt in that moment. I remember leaving and being so disturbed. I remember thinking of all of the things I should have said, but most of all I felt sorry that she had never had the joy of feeling the love and sympathy that having children gives you. photo 1D71_8746-natbluHaze.jpg
I digress.. back to the crazy that has been.. Lately you have been hard. You cry all of the time, and have big time mommy preference. Part of me loves that, and part of me needs to get something done without a pretty little lady sitting on my hip. Chloe had stranger danger, but you have never had it. Only a strong preference for me. If I put you down you scream. If I leave the room you scream. You never play on your own. It's really hard, but I really like that you like me so much. You find your comfort in me. We have a close bond, and always have.
