Gluten,

Give me back my boy!  Take your wily clutches off of him!

Our nights have been endless — not being able to fall asleep and then waking at 2am.  Why?  Please, please, give us one good night of sleep this week!?!?!?  This mama’s brain can’t function on a few hours here and a few there.

The tantrums have been enormous — seriously, a hitting, crying, throwing furniture fit for 1-1/2 hours because I couldn’t find the right movie for him at the library???  (He’s into “Wow Wow Wubbzy” at the moment.)  Don’t you think that’s a little excessive?  I have to sit here hopelessly watching/holding my son as he works through this and not knowing what I can do to ease his disappointment and/or pain.

The screaming is deafening.  Could you at least give us some earplugs until you pass through his system??

Oh, and I beg you, ease up on the toileting issues, please?  I can tolerate/understand this for a couple of days, but really, it’s time for you to leave!

Gluten, you are not a welcome guest in our house.  Don’t plan on ever returning!

Sincerely,

Christian’s Mom
