E has had some adorable bottom teeth for months now. Can you spot them in there??
They're cute as a button and although teething wasn't exactly a walk in the park, it was nothing compared to 3 months of colic. I considered us pretty lucky. That was, until last week. Last week I noticed E was sprouting some fangs-- little dangle teeth on top without teeth in between. I thought that was cute and appropriate for the season. Visions of vampires and bats and other funny Halloween costumes starting floating through my head.
And then ... the top middle teeth made an appearance. I began to have dreams of a different sort... ones involving self-committed mental institutionalization. Those top two puppies are MURDER!! She's a crying, cranky, emotional wreck. She's sleeping in small bursts, refusing to nap and is drooling buckets. Forget stem cells, scientists need to figure out how to cure diseases with baby drool. I'm pretty sure Miss E could single handedly produce enough slobber to rid the world of cancer.
They've finally broken through and the torture has eased a little, but the poor munchkin is still feeling some pain. We've tried frozen wash cloths, frozen teethers, Tylenol, warm baths and anything else we can get our hands on. However, the most effective product to date in my very official scientific double blind taste-test....er....I mean survey, has been Teething Tablets. I know, I know, they were pulled from the shelves for a while because there was rumor that contained trace amounts of heroin or something, but they're BACK! (I'm kidding, it wasn't heroin, but it was something equally as bad I think.... if you're really nervous, Google it). I understand that they're unresearched and probably no more than an overly hyped sugar pill (with trace amounts of narcotic), but whatever the case, I popped one of those babies under E's tongue and she was out before her head hit the mattress. It was GLORIOUS! GLORIOUS! I'm not advocating drugging up your kiddos, I'm not even saying you should try teething tablets, all I'm saying is that before teething tablets I was considering shaving my head and living out my life in seclusion and after teething tablets I'm dancing through the tulips with rainbows and unicorns. Of course that could just be the teething tablets talking.
