It takes a lot for me to say that. When Brianna's new teacher (she starts next week) asked me what I do to find out if Brianna is hurt I replied with "I tell her 'you're ok, let's go play.'" And seriously, that's the general approach I have with all my kids- they may hurt for a minute, and I'll comfort them, but I don't generally sit and pour over them unless there really is a good fall or injury.
Well, Emma gets some "poor baby" treatment from me here lately, of course, but the first few days we were home she had only one crying spell so I really thought she was on the up and up and this was going to be pretty easy. I was wrong.
Last night was her third spell of out of NOWHERE crying for over an hour. Today was the fourth- but only for about 15 minutes. Each time it doesn't seem anything triggers her (no bumps, falls, etc.) but she gets completelyy inconsolable for a time then settles down pretty well all of a sudden and then even smiles and kisses.
Today I picked her up carefully and laid her on a pillow on my lap (on the floor) and just sat and stroked her hair while she cried and cried and cried-- tears soaking the pillow and my shirt. But when she was all cried out, she looked up at me after a minute and smiled. I know, weird... I had been kissing her forehead and cheek and I kissed her cheek again and she kissed me back. Yes, she's learned to pucker her little lips up but doesn't quite understand the "release" :) What's kindof funny, though, is that I said "thank you!" then kissed her again and just as I reached her cheek (right next to her mouth-- we're not big 'lip kissers' here...) she stuck out her tongue and licked me!
Well, she's got spunk even when she's hurting... Oh, and she'd had pain meds when she got up from nap at 3, so they should have been working and there wasn't anything more I could do. It did pass fairly quickly though, which I'm very grateful for!
