Phoebe has been a little sick for the past week – she had a fever last week and missed a day of school.
Two nights ago, she woke up at 2am crying for us. I went up to check on her and she was pretty hysterical. I tried to calm her down and asked what was wrong.
[Crying] “My leg hurts!”
Me: “Why does your leg hurt?”
P: “Because I’m hungry!” [More crying]
I gave her some water to drink and got her to calm down after a few minutes. We rocked (standing up) and I got her situated back in her bed. I let her know that I would have to shut her door if she couldn’t be quiet. She really likes to have her door open. Once she got comfortable, she looked up at me and said, “Can you leave now, Daddy?”
I was back in my bed within seconds.
