Daniel's having one of his turns again. Wild rages, wild laughter, wild behavior. This is after a week of being mean to his sister and generally pessimistic about everything.

I'm not disabling comments - I don't mind them - but this is more for tracking than anything else. I really need to keep better records about these mood swings. I'm thinking we need to at least see the pediatrician and possibly a child psychiatrist. Given my own mental health issues as well as my family history, it's not unreasonable to think that he could be depressive or bipolar...although I thought that onset in children is rare. Still, this seems an emotional reaction beyond normal for his age group. I thought we were doing better, I really did.

He freaked out completely - tears, screaming, a full blown tantrum that would put any two-year-old to shame...over having to turn off the TV to pick up Dave (we're down to one car - long story). So he's (and we're) officially TV-free (and movie-free) for the weekend; we'll see if that helps.

I'm so tired.
