well, lord. after that last tantrum, i picked up violet and kind of bounced her a little and she was all droopy and when i would look at her face, she would produce this slow, drugged out smile. and so i had her lay her head against my chest and she went right out. i even managed to pull the floaties off her without her really coming around. after letting her sweat on my chest for 10 minutes, i really needed to pee and i was able to carry her and her drugged out, quarter-opened eyes to the bedroom and deposit her in her crib next to the noisy cat i guess i forgot to feed.
