Cole is teething. It’s FUN!!!

Or not.

He’s been running a fever- anywhere between 99.6 to 102.2 for the last couple of days. I don’t know whether it’s related to the tooth he’s popping out or not. I’ve gotten conflicting reports lately.

My father, big “helper” that he is (HA!), keeps suggesting that I rub bourbon on Cole’s gums. Maybe it wouldn’t hurt him, but I’m still not doing it. STOP SUGGESTING IT ALREADY.

The tooth coming out is on the bottom left. I noticed a little “bubble” on his gums the other day. Last night I looked again and I couldn’t see it. Knowing that I had seen it for sure the day before, I wondered aloud about its disappearance to my mother. She said that, sometimes, teeth come through just a little , then go back down, then pop out again, and back and forth like that multiple times. In fact, she said, my father’s teeth came in that way. Fucking joy of joys.

So, he’s not the most beautiful bubbling boy that he usually is right now. Especially at night. He’s been so fussy that I’ve tried to keep him attached at the boob most of the night, just to get some sleep. He’s been sucking me dry which has caused my milk production to increase and led to more discomfort during the day when I’m at work.

It’s fun times in our house right now!

I need a margarita.

    Teething isn’t fun for anyone. I remember trying to talk my kids out of it. I mean, they’re not even going to keep this set of teeth.
