The Shriek, revisited.


Actually, more like the shrieking, it’s a phenomenon and never just a single shriek. It is really, really loud and almost unbearable.  Your ears hurt.  Morning car rides are a common venue for the shrieking, I think because the toddler hates to be trapped in his car seat.  Older son and I try to explain calmly that it is for his safety, that we’re almost to our destination.  Nothing really helps once the shrieking has started.

Today older son sweetly tried singing, which did help briefly.  Then, when the shriek began again, he sighed and said, “Poor baby, I wish I could just pour love all over him and then he would always feel happy.”  

Me too.
