Wikipedia defines Teething as: The process by which an infant's teeth sequentially appear by breaking through the gums. Let me repeat the part of that definition that is really affecting me at this moment... breaking through the gums.
Are you kidding me? After all I've been through in this short life of mine you're telling me that now I have to endure the sensation of my own teeth ripping through my flesh?
Really? And it didn't occur to anyone out there to warn me about this?
Good grief! My entire body hurts. I'm cranky all the time. I'm not sleeping well. I cry all the time. This... is not good.
Mommy and Daddy are doing the best that they can. They are numbing my gums with Baby Orajel and that helps a little but it been really tough treading the last 24 hours around here. Abuelita Angie says that once my teeth break through it'll get a lot better but for now... it is what it is.
It is what it is? Listen Grandma. That kind of half-baked advice might fly in Puerto Rico, but not here! you feelin' me soul sister? I need concrete ideas on how to lessen the pain, and I need them now!
I'm sorry Abuelita Angie... I didn't mean to snap at you. It just hurts so much! I love you so much!
Anyway... I can't blog tonight. I need to find a way to get some sleep. My head hurts so much I can't even see straight. I've been so cranky lately that even Daddy has started hating life a little. The following is a list of things my Daddy misses most after 2 weeks in Colombia.
2) Air Conditioning
3) Traffic Lights and laws that people actually follow when out on the streets
4) Sports Center
5) Sweet Tarts
8) Noise Ordinance Laws
9) Not constantly sweating
10) Not being worried to death all day long because his brand new baby boy is hurting
Hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow. If not... Mommy and Daddy will be the first to know.
I guarantee it.
