A note on crying, screaming and such.

Reading back over the last few days entries I came to realize I'm now officially a parent. The reason? I can problem solve due to auditory stimulation.

Jack's yells, screams, cries, etc. are now clear indicators to me. I can tell his yells apart and know when they are good or bad. When he cries it's usually conditional, a la diaper or hunger, and easily solved. Screams are drop everything and run. They aren't normal and a huge indicator something has happened.

When Jack had the scary dream the other night and wanted mommy it was a cry. When Jack screamed the night before last it was big, bad mojo.

I hope it makes sense. I realized I had said that I had heard his worst cry and his worst scream this week and there's a difference that may not be appearant to you but is as transparent as glass to me.
