For the last 2 months whenever you grizzled I would say ‘oh she’s teething’, I find a lot of mums do exactly the same. However when you were actually teething, I just thought… ‘what is wrong with you?’ People felt inside your mouth and went owwww her gums are hard, i’d feel and go ‘oh yeah’! But really I didn’t have a clue what I was feeling.
Your first tooth (front, bottom right) poked through on Thursday 11th May and it’s super sharp. You’ve actually marked me, because you won’t chew teething rings, only mummy’s finger will do, or mummy’s nipple. A friend recently sent me this picture…
And it’s soooo true!!!
Back to when I first found out about your first tooth… I was at a work do and someone pointed it out and said oh her first tooth is through, what a bad mum I hadn’t even noticed. It did explain a lot though. Your dad had been working away for over a week and you were driving me crazy!! Crying all the time, and I had no idea what was wrong. That drive home from Guildford after my work do (it was during the day) was the hardest drive I’ve ever had in my life! You literally screamed the car down, I stopped 3 times to try and calm you down but every time I put you back in the car you screamed again. I rang your dad just to share my pain, he couldn’t hear me over your screaming.
Your second tooth (front bottom left) came through about a week later, and was no where near as bad as the first (thank god). I think (hope) the worst is over.
Famous last words 😬
