Sometimes there's a reason and sometimes we just can't figure it out. Logically I guess I can say that I'm sure it's just a phase. But, the timing is horrendous. She just got done being sick and cranky for about 10 days, my pregnant wife feels nauseous for about 20 hours a day, and now this. We're just not handling the screaming and stomping well emotionally. We're reacting the way we should with Hannah by just ignoring her when she starts, but man this is hard.

I'm serious when I say we're having awful thoughts about this second child right now. We're not looking forward to it at all right now. We've even had not-terribly serious thoughts that it's a really bad idea.
