Give me a minute.

Can we just take a minute to discuss that my 8 month old, has 8 teeth.


I'm mentally, physically and emotionally exhausted. 
 But how can I sit here and think about myself? My 8 month old is cutting teeth.
And I know , we have not gotten to the dreaded molars stage, but seriously.
I feel bad for him, because I can't even begin to imagine the pain he is enduring. 

I just need a second to breathe.

My husband is so wonderful at keeping my head on straight. I'm so thankful for him! 

I know I could be in far worse situations, and trust me I am thankful we are not and I am thankful we have a healthy kiddo.
And once we get all these teeth done with, days will be happy again and maybe nights will be spent sleeping again? 

I can't help but feel almost insane for wanting more kids.
Do I want to put myself through this again? Yes.
Because its only temporary, and the love I have on the good days makes up for it all. 

My child is not defined by his bad days.. And that goes for Life as well.
It's a roller coaster I tell you, and well.. I guess it's a good thing I like roller coasters.

  1. You are so much nicer than me...I may or may not have said to my small child last week-"Suck it up, kid. Everyone grows teeth. You're gonna have a lot bigger problems when you're older." LOL Bless them. It has been a little stressful around here lately, but I guess that goes with the territory, huh? You're a good mama!
    P.S. I can't find your button. Am I overlooking it? Send me the code if you have one and I'll put it on my sidebar. Thanks for adding mine. :)

    1. Oh thanks Doll! I'm trying to stay sane. Trust me though.. If J was a little older I may have told him to suck it up! Ha!!
      I think it's been a rough week for a few mommas! Hope things are getting better for you!
