The Looney Bin

You all are going to miss me when they ship me off to the looney bin. And if today is any indication, it won't be long now.

Ask any mama how things went when her baby was teething (as I have in the last few days) and she will tell you, 'Oh, it was hard.' Ladies and gentlemen, I'm here to tell you this is a lie. A BOLD-FACED LIE FROM THE PIT OF HELL.

Teething is not hard. Teething is HELL. With two big blue eyes and very loud screams.

Yes, it is sad to listen to your baby cry. But when that crying is an all-day affair, you will reach a point where you want to join your baby in kicking, screaming, and cursing that blasted tooth at the top of your lungs. NO SOLID FOOD IS WORTH THIS!

And the worst part of it? Looking into those sad blue eyes and knowing that you can't do anything to make it better. Except holding the teether inside your baby's mouth and cursing that tooth under your breath.

  1. Have you tried the teething tablets? My brother in law and sister swear by them. They are also 100% natural and have no side-effects. They are about the size of a Nerd candy and dissolve in about 5 seconds underneath baby's tongue. The brand I have is called Hyland's if you want to do more research on them. Good luck!

  3. Well...if it gives you any hope, we never had a big problem with teething, so each baby is different. Hopefully your next baby (someday) will be better! Or better yet...hopefully the rest of teething goes more smoothly!
