With a Capital M

Tonight you put the M in Monster. You are teething and it sucks. I know it sucks because you whined and cried and banged your head on the floor. Not once, not twice, but numerous times. I thought at one point you had knocked yourself out, but you were simply trying to catch your breathe because you hadn't stopped crying since daddy picked you up from daycare at 4:00. You didn't nap well because you are in pain, so you were not only in pain, but extremely tired. The worst possible combination, aside from peanut butter and eggs. I felt terrible for you. (I write this in past tense because you are sleeping quietly in your room and oh the bliss) There was nothing I or your daddy could do to make you feel better. We gave you some Motrin and Oragel, but even that was minamally effective. It seems like you have been teething for the past year. I can only hope that this will end soon as you almost have all of your teeth.

So, for now, we will try to keep you as comfortable as possible through this process. Do you think you could cut us a little break too?
