the kid is glued to me. i don't know if it's the holiday letdown or the meds, but for a while there it was a little crazy. he literally would not let go of me. i'd go to put him down and he'd just hold on tighter. he woke up in a sour mood, too, was cranky (really!) around mealtimes, and slept two hours this afternoon before i woke him up. it's only day two, so i know i can't draw too many conclusions yet, especially given the craziness of the past week.

in direct opposition to his turbulent emotional state, the kid is calmer overall. yesterday he stood and waited for me while i filled our sodas at a fast food place. then today he sat in the cart at the grocery store the entire time we shopped. and he is playing with toys a little more than usual -- and by playing i mean lining up blocks according to color rather than throwing them around the living room. so we shall see. i'm trying to make sure he gets to bed on time the next few days to prepare him (and me) for monday morning. but let's not talk about that....

interesting...i wonder what it is. There are times that my fraggles are just naturally clingy so it may even just be a phase.

Oy, Monday morning. I know. Kind of dreading getting back into the routine.... But, it'll be good to have Monkey back in school again.

He may be clingy because he knows the holidays are over and the routine is starting again. He can sense the transition.... Maybe?
