Had my first "losing it" moment last night. Nothing would make him happy and I needed to keep him quiet so the Mrs. could sleep...she works the night shift with him. Finally, after 2 hours, she came out and snatched him out of my arms. I then went into the garage and began funneling Makers Mark. After much consultation I now realize that I should have put him in his crib, closed the door, turned on the monitor (on low), and let him work it out. Instead I tried everything in the book to appease him. Lesson learned.
Ahhhh. Just goes to show. I'd have given the kid the Maker's Mark and put him in the garage to cool down.
