Well that was some week. My almost-two is having some separation anxiety issues (well at least that’s what I think it is!). As a result nap time has been a disaster for most of the week. And to top it off, he caught a cold so that made things worse. Sigh…
Most of my afternoons were spent sitting by his bed and getting him to nap.
It is Sunday evening and the husband is making sushi. Thankfully the little guy is doing much better today. Still a bit fussy, didn’t nap much although he’s tired. But at least there’s no fever and a far less leaky nose. Hooray!
We also managed to go out for some ramen at Santouka Ramen in San Jose. And checked out the Kinokuniya too!
