Friday Mayhem and I did a little traveling and spent the afternoon visiting my sister and then stayed the night with my mama. I sorta had hopes that the curse would be reversed and he'd go back to sleeping twelve hours straight like he did the last time we stayed with her. No such luck. But we had a good time and got up early Saturday morning to drive some more to my stepbrother's wedding.
You know, I consider myself to be pretty funny, but when confronted with a blank Jenga piece and asked to write something to the bride and groom on it I just slap came up empty. Nothing! So I had to settle for just our names. The same went for the tongue depressors we were supposed to write date night suggestions on.
(My stepbrother...poor fella...knocked over the unity candle before the wedding even started! All he could do was laugh and smile and I kept thinking to myself, "SYMBOLISM!" Let's hope not.)
Mayhem behaved very well during the ceremony and I give all the credit to Goldfish. No loud MM MMMing like at my cousin's graduation though thankfully.
Target was having a buy one get one half off dress sale Friday so I bought three potentials to wear to the wedding without trying them on (that turned out well) and took them all back Saturday afternoon. Some interesting clouds blew up while we were inside and it wasn't long after we made it back to the car big ol' fat rain, as Forrest Gump would say, came down.
Mayhem was exhausted and just passed out right on top of his daddy!
Since nobody was sick we went to both services at church Sunday. When I picked him up from the nursery after the morning service the ladies told me that he'd been so good and played they didn't even know he was there. That night was a different story. They said he had social difficulties and fell apart when one of his little friends crawled at him too fast for his liking and then a little girl bopped him in the face for crying! I guess it's hard learning to play with others.
Monday morning we went back to the doctor for a check up on his ears. They seem to be about 70% better the doctor said and should finish healing on their own. They'll check him again at his 18 month appointment in September barring any trouble between now and then.
The doctor spent most of the time talking to me about his sleep problems- Mayhem's sleep problems, not the doctor's. I'll try anything once so last night I gave the Cry Yourself to Sleep approach another go. It took an hour and half and about six different times of me going in to help him lay back down, but he finally went to sleep and slept the next 7 hours!
The doctor said it should take two weeks but, if we're consistent he ought to be cured of this waking up every 45 minutes nonsense. I certainly hope so and last night was a good encouragement.
