Teething (And Other Earth-Shattering Achievements)
My eight month old daughter got her first two teeth! Yes, I know. You don’t care. But I care, and since this is my blog, I’m going to tell you all about it.
So my daughter is in her high chair and I’m feeding her some healthy pureed organic crap, and she opens her mouth, and there it is! A tiny, adorable almost-tooth! Then, a couple days later, another one!
This is huge! She started crawling a few weeks ago, but for some reason, I think I’m even more excited about the teeth, which is kind of weird since it’s not like I have any special interest in teeth. Actually, I generally prefer not to think about teeth because it reminds me of the dentist which reminds me of having cavities filled, which reminds me that I haven’t been to the dentist in two years which reminds me that I need to go to the dentist. Oh, and I’m afraid of the dentist. Did I say that?
Anyway, back to the teeth. If you’ve been within a 50 mile radius of me lately, I’ve probably asked you to look at my daughter’s amazing almost-teeth. For some unfathomable reason, no one really seems to care. Whatever. Nothing is going to kill my buzz.
I’m so excited, I almost peed my pants. Wait, no, I did pee my pants. Oh wait, no, nevermind, that was the baby peeing on my pants. God, can no one invent a leak-free diaper? Calling all engineers, astrophysicists, and all generally smart people. What is wrong with the human race? We put a man on the moon like forty years ago, but we still can’t keep the piss in the diaper. Seriously.
The Canadian Dental Association recommends that children first visit the dentist by a year of age. You better believe I’ll be following that recommendation- I get to hang out with someone who actually wants to talk about my daughter’s teeth!
So, yeah, my daughter’s teeth are awesome. But I’m not going to post a picture or anything like that because I don’t want to be one of those annoying moms who thinks that everyone should care about every little insignificant detail in their kids’ lives. Oh…umm..okay, wait, nevermind. But I’m still not posting a picture! And you should care! Because, my baby has two teeth, and it’s kind of a big freaking deal.
