The Sad Little Bubby and his Tired Mummy

Eric bolted awake just before five this morning. Rich went into check on him and he shrieked "LIGHT ON!! LIGHT ON!!!" which means he's ready to get up. If I had checked on him, I would have given him a hug and a kiss and told him to go back to sleep, but R usually just sucks it up and gets up with him.

He's had a little eye infection over the last couple of days. For some reason it's been accompanied by a fundamental exhaustion. We sent him to school yesterday because he seemed fine in the morning and by the time I picked him up at five thirty he looked like he was going to fall asleep in his tracks. He crashed last night at seven.

So, this morning he was crabby and tired and I was going to try to bring him to school, when he crashed at 8. I popped him in the crib and lo and behold he slept nearly two hours. Then we walked over to Harrison Street where they are ripping my roof off to accommodate the dormers. This is SO cool.

But Eric managed to cry all the way home after an incident where I took his juice to fix the dripping lid. Somehow he lost it after that and wouldn't take the juice back. Over an hour later he finally seems to have fallen asleep.

Poor little bubby. I wish I knew what was wrong with him but the doctors can't see him until THURSDAY.
