a mr nice guy exclusive
mrs nice guy and i have been mystified lately. the kid went from dozing peacefully all night long just a couple weeks ago to waking up at least three times a night, every night. it sucks. i cannot tell you how much it sucks. we have tried nursing her, changing her, ignoring her ... nothing seems to work. (this morning mom was irrationally angry at a 6-month-old infant, stomping around the apartment slamming cupboards and murmuring under her breath "mumblemumble dumb baby mumble exhausted mumblemumble meetings today," which was funny.)
so what's going on? the kid might be teething, she might be gassy, she might just be figuring out that if she cries, we will come. these are the main popular theories.
i have my own hypothesis, a mr nice guy exclusive, and i am going to share it with you: it's the diaper champ. seriously, you have to feel a little sorry for the kid. how well would you sleep every night knowing that sitting at the foot of your bed was a big bag -- twice as big as you -- filled with your own steaming offal?
