Fun night

We're listening to The Boy read his Batman book out loud. It's very cute, listening to the parts he's memorized, particularly the parts where I'm imitating the voices of the characters. Besides, how many kids, at 2 1/2, know the contents of the Batcave and can identify the Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, and Two-Face?

I'm more of a Marvel guy, so he's also got a good handle on Spider-Man, Silver Surfer, Wolverine, the Hulk (my fave), and Iron Man (my other fave). Super-heroes are awesome, and their modern mythology teaches good lessons.

Now he's moved on to Tubby the Tuba. Still cute.

Last night was awful. He woke up screaming every two hours. We're not really sure what caused it; the first one was likely heat. He peed through four diapers overnight, which is also somewhat concerning. We gave him Tylenol at 2am, which seemed to help, but not enough to prevent wakeups at 4 and 6.

We eventually capitulated and put on Mary Poppins and Thomas to help him calm down. It did help some.

This is the scary part: what's normal? What is appropriate for a kid his age, and what could possibly be cancer and chemo effects? Welcome to the new struggle...
