Also, I've been struggling with my ADHD (go ahead, give me the standard eye-roll and lecture on how overdiagnosed it is, and how overmedicated we as a society are. What you don't know is that I have research to back up the fact that women often aren't diagnosed until early adulthood and even then, sometimes never diagnosed, so nyah, nyah, nyah). It's hard, because while nursing I can't resume my medication, and thusly really struggle to stay orgnanized, or at least maintain some semblance of organization. So, hence the visit to my family doctor in a few weeks to discuss options (giving up nursing? or stay off the meds?)
Anyways moving on... so last night, we resumed the rice cereal. We had stopped for a while because Shepherd was being so fussy at night, and I didn't know if it was the cereal or something else. He continued to be fussy after a week off of the cereal, so we determined that it wasn't that. So last night? We started over. And 'lo, how happy he was to be eating the gunky rice cereal again. So happy that he'd wave his arms in excitement and try to grab our hands or the spoon to pull it to his mouth... resulting in lots of cereal everywhere (including his hair). But all in all, it was grand.
And after dinner, we had to give him a bath, because seriously, rice cereal in the hair.
Then it was off to bed. I don't know if it was a result of the rice cereal, or if it was just a stroke of luck? But Shepherd went to sleep around 8:45 (he ate at 7:45) and didn't wake up until 4:45 this morning to eat. Sleep glorious sleep...
So today? Is looking like a wonderful day... shooting rainbows and gumdrops out of our butts kind of good.
