Teething is in Full Force Again [The Sunday Post]

Life Updates:


Why does teething have to be such a painful/terrible process for everyone? My daughter has been CONSTANTLY fussy lately. And clearly in pain. And it makes her nose runny and her diaper rash flare up and other rashes flare up. And then she doesn’t want to eat, so she’s overly hungry. And THAT makes her not want to sleep so she’s overly tired.

She’s just altogether not a happy camper. So no new pictures; there weren’t many good ones this week.

And I, therefore, haven’t had such a good week myself.

That said, we’ve had surprisingly gorgeous weather this weekend. So instead of writing and working, as I had planned, I did more yardwork. Which I am super proud of. Things are really looking good in our backyard — almost professional even! Maybe we could fool people into thinking we actually had a plan all along — ha. Haha. Ha. Yeah …

Camp NaNoWriMo has slowed down a lot for me this week too. I just haven’t been in the right frame of mind for writing. I mostly blame the small, fussy child, but work has had somewhat to do with that too. We’re getting to the last little pieces of the stats course I’ve been working on, and I’ve been spending a decent chunk of time building an excel-based model to do fancy statistics that excel can’t natively do. That kind of thing ALWAYS kills my writing mood.

This Week I Enjoyed:

I am SO far behind blog-hopping. I will be doing a LOT of catch-up over the next couple of weeks. Or early May. May sounds good.

  • Aw, poor thing. Life isn’t all roses and butterflies… I guess we all have to go through this. Good thing we don’t remember!
    We haven’t had good weather at all, it has still been literally freezing 🙁 meh!
    Hope you have a good week and drop by if you have the time 🙂

      Thanks! I am definitely glad I don’t remember teething, haha!

  • I remember that when my kids were little. The doctor insisted it wasn’t from the teeth but I knew…Mom spidey sense, I always felt so bad for them. Growing teeth is so hard but that picture you have is adorable! What a cutie! 🙂

    I hope you have a great week, Michelle! Happy Reading! 🙂

      Oh, the first time my daughter started teething the doctor insisted she wasn’t teething yet because her gums weren’t noticably swollen. And I was honestly kind of shocked. I may be a first-time mom, but even I know how to put several symptoms and behaviors together (drool, chewing, fussy over her mouth, etc) and draw a logical conclusion. I’ve decided that she just doesn’t show her teeth until well after they’ve already started to bother her.
