The Calm Before the Storm

Posted in Buggle Bite, Motherhood, Parenting at 12:09 pm by Momma

After a successful implementation of Operation Shut Out the Dad-Oh and I thought we had died and went to Heaven! Friday night The Buggle slept the best he has slept in a very long time! He still woke up for his Bee-Boo session, but went right back to sleep and slept until 7:40! The entire night in his bed?! Did we win the lottery? He woke up happy and ready to begin his day….for like seven minutes.

Seems The Buggle is getting another tooth! And this pearly white is wreaking havoc on The Buggle’s happy-go-lucky world! 😦 Poor little guy was a mess yesterday. He didn’t want to eat because it hurt, he didn’t want to sleep because it hurt, he didn’t want play, be held, be put down, be read to, be cuddled, he pretty much didn’t want anything all the while wanting everything! I felt so bad for him! Usually his frozen app-cicle offers a bit of comfort, but this time it just pissed him off, in a how could you offer me that crap when I am in this much pain kinda way? I gave him a dose of Tylenol which allowed him to nap for about twenty minutes. We did everything we could to try to make it better and take his mind off the pain. Getting him ready for bed last night was a big challenge. Dad-Oh had to walk him to sleep. He slept long enough for us to inhale our dinner, before he woke up S.C.R.E.A.M.I.N.G. Dad-Oh and I felt so bad for our little man guy! He never screams like that so we really knew that he was in serious pain!

Poor little guy was trying his very best to go to sleep, he really wanted to sleep but was in so much pain he just couldn’t. Between screams I managed to smear baby Orajel on the culprit. This really pissed him off, and he went down in a tailspin from there. We sat on the edge of my bed rocking and singing before he finally managed to get some relief. I laid down with him in bed and he went in and out of little crying fits before finally entering his baby dreamland. Once he fell asleep he seemed to sleep pretty good, he was very needy and had his little pudgy toes wedged in between my ribs all night, but if that’s what my little angel needed for comfort I wasn’t about to rob it from him!

He slept until 4:30. We changed his pamper, had some booby, and a fresh dose of Tylenol before we both headed back to bed. We all slept soundly until 7:45! He’s doing mildly better today, but I think it’s because I am keeping up on his six hour regimen of Tylenol! This teething thing bites!

    You ain’t seen nothin’ yet…wait till he starts sprouting those molars. 😦

    Hey, you were mentioned in a comment on my site. Just so you know, I’ll expect the bigger cut because I did it first. 😎
