Vista is slowly coming down from the two weeks of oral steroids she was on over Christmas for her asthma. It’s hard to say when she’ll be back to ‘normal’. But it’s definitely showing in her behaviors.
Her teacher commented on it at preschool on Monday. When ever one of the kids would approach her she would scream and throw a fit (see: How to win friends and influence people).
Aaaaand that would be why we’re thankful she has an aide in class with her. To deal with the situations like that.
At home, though, there’s no aide. Just us. It makes for some long days. Add the fact that the steroids interrupt her sleep patterns and you have long nights too. And I’m one of those people who NEEEEEED to sleep. I love my sleep. I covet the sleep I used to get pre-kid. Lack of sleep = very cranky Jenn.
And that in a nutshell is why I haven’t been on the interwebs lately.
Cranky kid + cranky parents = not fit for human interaction.
But we’re slowly getting back to normal around here. Whatever normal means. If someone figures that out, let me know.
