It could be legit like teething or ridiculous like L (2y, 9m) crying because I gave her a choice between sandals or Crocs. Apparently, I was supposed to read her mind that she only wanted to wear Crocs.
Pip has been waking up crying the past couple nights because a donkey of a neighbor has been lighting what sound like professional grade fireworks (rattle our brick house even) after 11pm. Friday night we called the police (as did at least 3 other neighbors) because the donkey shot them off at almost midnight. They're only legal from 6/25-7/4 and only until 11pm here.

We had a heat wave this weekend, so today DS and I hunkered down in the basement to watch movies. We picked Paddington and only made it halfway through because DS was getting all sad and weepy over Paddington losing his home in an earthquake, then having to say goodbye to his Aunt Lucy, and then having a hard time finding a home when he arrives in London.
He was still upset about it when we were eating dinner later, especially the part where Aunt Lucy says she will be going to the Home for Retired Bears. The way this plays out in the movie it could be suggesting that she is going to die soon. DS was really upset about it. Told me he was sick and wanted to go to bed early.
Poor kid. I guess I should be somewhat glad that for a kid on the spectrum, he's able to feel a lot of empathy for a fictional bear.
ETA: he was also upset that the absence of Paddington's parents was not explained. I wonder if he has abandonment issues.

Nugget cried yesterday because I wouldn't let her bring all three of her blankies into my office when I brought her in for a couple of minutes to say hi to my coworkers when J dropped me off. Apparently just two blankies was not enough. These are not tiny lovies, they're fuzzy blanket, and she keeps adding to her obsession with them. I was glad at first that she wasn't crazy attached to only one blankie, but now she carries around three of them or wants me to hold her while she holds all three, which is super awkward. Toddlers, man.
