Laying on the couch this morning with one lanky kid to my side and the other little squirt sitting on my shins, I was completely enjoying myself; as were they, evident by their constant giggles and wriggling around. We had a heckava night with Judah last night. Right as Josh and I were heading to bed, he woke up in a massive tantrum, but this time, we couldn’t get him back to sleep. Finally after off and on tantrums intermittently broken up with quiet moments, we moved Jacob into our room and let Judah do what he wanted. It was about 4:30am and I guess Judah decided then was as good a time as any to get up and play. So play he did and we slept for another few hours. I couldn’t figure it out. What had bothered him enough for such an upset night and an early morning?

As we were jumbled together on the couch, giggling and looking out at the melting snow, I reached for Judah’s pacifier. Low and behold, I had given him the pacifier with a hole in it. !!! Enter rush of mom guilt and apologizing profusely. Lately during the day, Judah has been content to chew on his “chewie” (technical name: Ark Grabber) but for naps and night time, he must. have. his. pacifier. Somehow last night in the mesh of our bed-time routine, I clipped the one with a hole in it to his nighty.
As soon as I replaced it this morning, I could see in Judah’s face a relief that FINALLY mom understands! What a sweet boy I have! I have since thrown away the offending pacifier and will double check each one from now on.
I just want to take a moment to say how great Josh is. Seriously, he got up with Judah last night, he spends even his tired moments with the boys and his love for us shows in all t he sacrifices he makes.THIS POST from 5minutesforspecialneeds.com is exactly who Josh is.
