Poor Little Guy
Jansen woke up REALLY ornery today. At first I thought it was all about wanting to go outside...which I was not about to do at 6:30 in the morning. We had all day to play outside. He cried and whined for a couple hours and I was trying everything I could to make him happy...popsicles, cookies, watch a movie, go outside, go on a drive (which we did), play games on the computer, etc. Nothing worked, which is very unusual. I wouldn't normally cater to him like this but I felt like he was out of control and needed some distraction so that he could get a hold of himself. He didn't have a fever or any other symptoms besides being extremely fussy so I didn't suspect sickness. But as the morning continued I could tell he was NOT himself and something was wrong. It was so strange, most of the morning he kept wanting me to take him out to the car. As I mentioned, I thought maybe he wanted to go on a drive or to hold the steering wheel or something. But he acted like he wanted to sit in his car seat and go somewhere. Again, very unusual. When I did drive around with him he was still very unhappy, so I was stumped. I eventually made an appointment with the doctor and it ends up he had ruptured his eardrum. Poor kid! I can't help but wonder if he was trying to get me to take him to the doctor this morning...hah hah. I guess I'll never know!
