teaching math never sounded so good....

This weekend has been awful.
Isaac has had a lot of trouble sleeping and it's made for a very unhappy Isaac during his waking hours. And very unhappy parents during Isaac's waking hours.

Friday night, he screamed for an hour and a half before he would go to bed. But, of course, he woke up at his normal time, bright and early, at 6:00 am. Then, he would only take 45 minute naps all day yesterday. And he screamed in between said short naps. I put him to bed at 6:15.

He slept until 6:00 this morning, but has taken even SHORTER naps today. He's currently screaming his little head off with Derek, so that I don't forfeit my sanity. It's been rough going.

And I'm not really sure why I am not going back to school...

Hang in there Sarah - It'll be okay and you and Derek will get through. I'll be praying for you both and Sir Isaac. ~michelle

No words of wisdom since I have no experienced with unhappy little ones (yet), but I just wanted to encourage you. I hope this coming week is much better for your family!

It will be okay. Before you know it, he will be going to school. Cherish the moments you have with him,even the tough ones. They grow up too fast!!

Thanks for the update! It must have been a HORRIBLE weekend for you to rethink teaching at this point in time...but, just in case, I'm sure there are still some vacancies out there!

It will be okay. I know that is easy for us to say because we are not in it but I'm seriously praying for you. If you need a break I'll jump in the car and help you out.

We found that any transition was hard for Benjamin, so he cried and cried in his waking moments, I asked Kevin if it was legal to put them on EBay.. :)
It will get better, I promise!!!
