3, 4 & 5…not so easy

Tears

See those tear-stained cheeks? Teeth 3, 4 and 5, which have decided to make a simultaneous entrance are not as easy as 1 and 2. It’s been a rough reentry into the week. We traveled over the weekend–half of us going one way, half of us the other. And when we met back home, everyone was tired, Emma was throwing up and the house was a mine-field of partially unpacked suitcases and dirty laundry.

Emma was a prisoner of the sofa for most of the day, and didn’t perk up this much until very late in the day. A diet of Little House on the Prairie Season 2 is the only thing that got her through. We hadn’t revealed to her that the books were actually in movie form too, so it was quite the thrill when we pulled the television down from the closet and revealed a whole new version.

I was just thinking what a pretty silhouette this picture is. And speaking of silhouettes….

While we were away, something has rotted in my refrigerator and I cannot find it. It is driving me crazy. The smell lingers even after the door has been closed which sometimes sets me off my track and has me thinking the smell might be coming from somewhere else. My nose actually felt sore inside from all the sniffing and hunting around the house I’ve been doing. There’s probably a dirty diaper, long-forgotten shoved under something. Somewhere. And for the record my box of baking soda on the middle shelf, just behind the mayo,  is making absolutely no difference.

Also while we were away a large, black spider entered our medicine cabinet and carefully weaved(wove?) a web around the bottles of things that were left behind. And he has the audacity to hang there, out in the open while I try to carefully fumble around for the toothpaste without coming into contact with him or his web.

And for a last bit of randomness. I need to write a small bio about myself which has also reminded me that I’d like to do something with that empty "about" page on my blog. Could you help me out? What kinds of things should I write about? Any burning questions you’d like to know about me? What should I include? Ideas, anyone, anyone??

  1. We’re working on 2 year molars over here. The bottom are through but the top are still working. 2 Summers ago Tristan got a new tooth just about every week and that was really hard too. Hopefully this will just get your baby tooth pain over for a little while.

  2. oy! what a week molly!

    the bio thing is hard – i had to do that, too. i had fatty write it and then i edited it myself. well, actually, i re-wrote it, but he gave me a good starting point. just make it light and not too serious…wish i could help more.

    have a great thanksgiving, too!

  3. My third daughter had teeth like that, never one at a time. We lived on “teething Tablets”. They are homeopathic, and seem to do wonders. That and advil! 🙂

  4. That teething thing hurts! I have no idea how many teeth my 15 month old even has. He won’t let me look inside! I did spot molars the other day though and I was like ‘when did you guys get here?’

  5. oh Molly, i’m having one of those challenging weeks too; sewed my finger, laryngitis before my craft show on Fri, food issues with my toddler…Arlo got teeth 3,4,5,6 on Christmas day 2 years ago!! it was pretty smooth but not without ample Boiron brand Camillia and homeopathic Arnica 30c. life savers! The hyland’s teething tablets never worked for us but i know lots of others who swear by it. Let’s hope for a better tomorrow!

  6. Oh, that teary baby makes my heart ache. Hope your girls are better now.Way back and down in a refrigerator is a spot where water can run into (at least in the refrigerators I have had so far). Maybe something got into there ?As for the bio, I always enjoy reading silly facts about people. No idea why, but I love to know what kind of ice cream someone likes, what book he or she read and reread during adolescence and what they wanted to be when they were little.Sounds a little absurd, doesn’t it ?

  7. Start with a breath and maybe some tea. Then pick up a pile of magazines, preferably including Orion, and read the bio sections from them. Keep it simple.

    Perhaps now is the time to read Charlotte’s Web.

  8. Hey Molly,So glad you stopped by to say hello over on my blog. This is so strange, I thought I had just done the same, and now I realize that there are three of us (Molly’s) all clustering around the wisdom and wit of Lori at CCP. I love Lori, her writing and her ideas. This picture of your daugther deserves an enlargement and a frame to be placed atop the family piano. (Don’t know if you have a piano, but it’s a worthy spot.) Be well,Molly I.

  9. Poor little thing! Homeopathic stuff is good, you can take as much as you need. Arnica is like magic for kids.

    Have you checked under and behind the fridge?

  10. Oh poor little one 🙁 When my identical twins were teething they teethed at the same time. Their first tooth came down with three others all at once, *ouch*

    Poor little girlies and poor mummy who was dealing with 8 teeth while breastfeeding.
