Characters: Claire & anyone who would like to respond.
The day was hot and Claire was tired. She'd been going on very little sleep since Aaron's arrival and her frustration and fatigue were growing. She leaned over to change him pulling back the hair that fell into her face and tucking it behind her ears. He'd been fussy most of the morning and afternoon. When she finished, she picked him up, softly humming hoping it would soothe him. After several minutes he still cried and Claire looked around in desperation. She needed some help.
