not my intention

I don't mean to complain, just to ask - how long does it take for two year old molars to come in, anyway?! This has been, by far, the worst tooth emerging experience in our family thus far. I feel horrible continuing to pump Aaron full of Motrin, so we've been doing 1/2 doses except for at night. I also feel sorry for the poor kid, it's taking such a toll on his little personality that it has to be hurting quite a lot!

Such a tiny problem, with such far reaching arms. I sure hate all the discipline issues it seems to bring - I know how grumpy I get when I'm in pain.

I think it's nap time. For me.

oh boy. that's a tough one. Every kid is so different. I never ever knew when Rachel was cutting a tooth. But Abby was always grumpy and would run a little fever cutting her molars. Hopefully it will pass quickly. Enjoy your nap!

Its been taking forever for Jonas too! :-) I've never had to give him motrin or tylenol. I have only used the Hylands teething tablets. Have you tried those? They are homeopathic. Our CVS sells them.

I am such a dummy. AJ has been so difficult for the last few days, and after reading your post... duhhh his molars must be emerging too! He has all the signs, but I never put it all together. Whew! It's nice to know he's going nuts on me for a reason. I hope Aaron soon finds relief! Now, where did I put that Tylenol?

molars can be unpredictable - they start to move, then stop... etc. sorry he's having such a hard time with this.

remember part of the "issue" could also be the fact that he's had a big change in his family recently, too... on top of not feeling well.

When life gets to be just TOO MUCH for any one of my grandkids, it's time for a visit to Grandma & Grandpa's house!! A change of pace for the child, a treat for the grandparents and a much needed break for the parents. So there's an idea for you. I hope that Aaron is feeling better.
