Recently, Duplo has been kind of fussy. I think it’s because his molars are coming in. At least, I hope that’s what it is. Sometimes it’s because he’s hungry or overtired. Anyway, when he’s in a cranky mood, all he wants to do is to sit on a parent’s lap . . . four an hour or more. If you do him the injustice of standing up or putting him down, he starts to cry and throw a huge tantrum. This morning he screamed for about 20 minutes straight at the top of his lungs because I was doing dishes and making breakfast instead of holding him. Anytime I sit down for a few minutes, he almost always ends up on my lap, and I know the same is often true for Jon Boy. I don’t know why he’s suddenly needing so much cuddle time. Sometimes I’m happy to comply, but it does make it difficult to get stuff done when he’s in one of these moods.
