Notes From Motherhood: Happy Teething, Happy New Year!

For some reason I can’t at all remember when my first daughter started teething. Was the memory so horrific that I’ve blocked it out? That must be the case because my 3.5 month old has started teething. Isn’t this a little early? I’m assuming this means she’ll be an early reader as well.

Some of the symptoms are: eating around the clock, crankiness, not sleeping well…and that’s just me, the baby is having a hard time, too. 🙂

I’ve tried homeopathy, good old Tylenol (although she’s so young I’m keeping the amounts minimal) and lots of love. Of course I brought out her pink Teether Gum Brush for the occasion!

Bite as much as you want, honey! There are no BPAs! 🙂

She loves the feeling of the soft bristles against her ailing gums. Great mom that I am, I even popped it in the freezer so that she can cool down her gums a bit. Okay that’s not an original idea but I get points for remembering to do it, right?

Yes, I do keep flour in my freezer...Try to find the Teether Gum Brush!

Tonight I’ll be excitedly watching New Year’s Eve celebrations all over the world on television while tending to her little gums. Babysitters across the globe will be raking in the dough big time, too I’m sure.

I’m hoping that she’s not awake when the clock strikes midnight. Cross your fingers that I’ll enter 2010 with a peaceful, sleeping baby.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Notes From Motherhood: More Than Gifts?

The holidays are a big deal in my home. My eldest daughter knows she’s getting gifts. She loves getting gifts. Lately I’ve been wondering how to impart in her the spirit of the holidays rather than just the excitement from the potential loot she’s going to drag to her bedroom.

One way I’ve done this is by discussing why she is going to get presents before she can open any. I’m not sure this works, but it’s what my parents did!

How do you make sure your kids know the holidays are more about more than collecting presents?
