I scared Jake today. He was screaming so hard when I was putting him down for his afternoon nap that I gave up, took him out of his cot, and put him on the floor saying, “Fine, do whatever you want!” He immediately stopped crying and just stood there, not knowing what to do. Then he fetched his bucket of balls, wanting me to play, but I was so tired and upset, I just ignored him. Then he made a whimpering sound and it hit me – how small and dependent he is and what a complete tit I was being.
