Greystoke has had a little bit of a hard time with the chaos of summer. He has been sort of anxious, stuttering a lot, peeing a lot. The older 2 are so loud and so fast, and he thinks he should be able to keep up with them and that's a lot.
I mean, actually it is a lot better than last year, IF I am sitting right beside him reminding him how to form each letter. But the minute I walk away and ask him to write it himself, the best that he can do it, it is all over the place, half of the letters are backward, some are random capitals, and they are spread all over the paper.
She mostly doesn't cry hard when I leave her to herself, but I don't even like to let her fuss long. Sometimes when she falls asleep easily after a few minutes of complaining, and when I check on her, I think to myself...she doesn't know. Shedoesn't know that her mother is a big softie who has not let any of her babies cry themselves to sleep and isn't about to start with her baby girl.
