Guess who’s the alligator now

See that second last photo on my previous post?  The one where she looks likes she having her eyes clawed out by rabid squirrels and noone will help her?  Everyone is just pointing at the squirrels and laughing?  Yesterday she looked like that.  All.  Day.  Long.  I believe the culprit is actually new teeth, not squirrels, but you never know.  Those squirrels can be tricky.

So, needless to say, Sunday at our humble abode was not a pleasant day.  When she wasn’t screaming, she was whining, and when she wasn’t whining, she was screaming.  If she asked for Dora and I put it on, she cried because it wasn’t Diego.  And vice versa.  Our only break was her two hour nap, from which she woke up just as cranky as when she went to sleep.

After I’d had just about enough of the grump, I started drugging her.  Nothing hard-core; just some Hyland’s Teething Tablets, but it had to be done.  It worked slightly, but anything would have been an improvement.  And short of pre-packaging her and putting her up for sale on Ebay (lying in the description, of course, because who in their right mind would willingly pay money for a teething toddler?), I was out of options.

And this morning, I saw signs of more of the same to come today.  So I packed the tablets for my mom, dropped her off, and wished my mom luck.  Because she’s going to need it.  Luck or whiskey.  A lot of it.  Straight up, no shooter.

    Packaging them in a bright bow at the end of the driveway works well, too…
