The past few nights have not been fun for me at all. The boys are teething again, and this time it’s their top front teeth coming in. Omg! Malc started first about five days ago, with both front teeth coming in at the same time. Needless to say, he was not a happy camper at all. He was super cranky and super fussy. He ended up with a fever that was pretty stubborn for a few hours there, but it eventually went away. As a parent, it’s tough not being able to help your baby when they feel pain. Yes, the Anbesol and generic Tylenol works, but it doesn’t take away the fact that I felt powerless as a parent.
After a day or so of TLC and occasional meds, Malc returned to his normal happy self. The fever was gone, and all he wanted to do was play with his brother and sister. One day goes by, and the next thing I knew, Marc was feeling warm. I took a peek into his mouth, only to find out that his front teeth were starting to come in as well. He was not a happy camper like his bro, but he was no where near as fussy as his brother. Marc was still trying to play, still trying to smile, and was happy with a little TLC from mommy and daddy. The only time that was tough for Marc was during the night. he had a real touch time catching some z’s.
After a few rough days, the boys are doing fine. They feel better, and I feel better as a parent knowing that my boys are not in pain. Maybe I’ll finally be able to get some good sleep, oh I forgot, that won’t happen again until they’re grown.
