Prop 8 makes babies cry

Poor D looked mighty miserable last night. Thankfully he slept better overnight, and today while still being quite, um, touchy, he seems to be feeling better overall. I didn't take his temperature before bed but he felt much closer to normal, and while his eyes still look pretty tired (nasty-looking dark circles) he was also running around the living room with Zach before his bath. He kinda had this funny cycle of moods that he went through over and over today-- he'd be playing and then get super frustrated over seemingly nothing, cry cry cry, eventually settle down in my arms where he'd rest with me for a while seeming almost ready to fall asleep... and then he'd all of a sudden pop up and look at me with a devilish grin and do something super cute. Then that good mood would last about 5 minutes before something pissed him off again.

My personal theory is that, while he's still not feeling quite 100% and that was part of what fueled today's tantrums, he was mostly reacting to the news of the California supreme court ruling to keep Proposition 8 in place. Can't say I blame him.


  1. a sweet sensitive and politically aware child, how could he be feeling himself today...
    poor baby...

  2. The US just isn't close to Europe when it comes to being progressive... I also think that is why there are a lot more expats these days.

  3. I feel your pain, D.
