Lately Israel has really been difficult. He is growing up, but as is the case with most toddlers, he is not doing it very gracefully. In his newfound desire for independance, he throws the most spectacular tantrums when anyone tries to help him do anything, from putting on his pants to opening a candy wrapper. He has just started doing this in the last few days.
I began to notice a few other things about him, like excitability and aggression (mostly toward his brother, but he did bite me the other day), sudden mood changes (it's amazing how fast a toddler can go from smiling to screaming), excessive drooling (I don't even know what that's about), eating substances not normally eaten (why must everything go in their mouths?), and delirium (he keeps talking about seeing a green kitty in his bed).
While most would chalk this up to "being a toddler", as so many children act this way when they are that age, there is one other explanation, a disease which has all of those symptoms. The answer is quite simple.
They all have rabies.
