Parenting is hard work, but there is a lot of joy that comes with the hard work and it makes it incredibly rewarding. Teething sucks the joy right out of it and makes everything (and everyone) miserable.
When Camberlyn got her first two teeth, it was really easy. Honestly, they both came in within 24 hours and she hardly got upset at all. So being a first time parent I naively assumed they would all be that way. I once again learned one of life’s hard lessons; never assume.
Over the past two and half weeks Cam has been teething basically non-stop. And it has been rough. Fevers, whining, grumpy, waking up in the middle of the night ( which she NEVER does), no appetite, runny nose… NOT FUN. But this morning the clouds parted and it looks like we might get a break for a little while ( Hallelujah!). Cam now has three new teeth, 2 on the top and another on the bottom. She is back to her normal, happy self and eating like there is no tomorrow.
What is the moral of this story? Never assume that because something went easy one time it will every time.
