Can I vent?!
I have lost M, my happy, smiley, adorable little man has been replaced with a screaming, frustrated, angry, monster! It's teeth, I'm sure of it as he has bitten me numerous times and whatever he can get into his mouth, he will (including his sisters hand which results in toddler tantrums). I've resorted to Calpol today to help him sleep. He hates dentinox, will not take a dummy or chew on cold teething rings for very long, even Sophie isn't cutting it. I cannot get Anbesol or teething powders over here which were both a God send when E was teething. He will not go down, even when he fell asleep on me, the moment I moved to put him in the crib, he woke and screamed! This also woke E up from her nap, 30 minutes after I'd fought her to g to bed.
My house is awful! After a weekend away, there is stuff everywhere and a mountain of washing. Not much I can do about it though so the maid will be busy tomorrow... H has just called me and I've asked him to come home just so I can eat! He's leaving now thankfully but it means he will have to work tonight so we get no couple time. Plus, if last night is anything to go by, there will be more screaming at bedtime (Michael) which lasted for 3 hours and had me crying because I have never seen my baby like that- he was clawing at my face in rage Pesky teeth! I wish they'd hurry up and appear. I've just made a cuppa with M in the sling, not very safe but I'm a desperate woman. I have also let E raid the craft drawer and we are all covered in stickers, the floor is covered in glitter... Oh well
I hope someone brings my baby back soon!

Remember .... This. Too. Shall. Pass
But sending gin in the meantime. Teething is hideous.
And don't feel bad about making a cuppa with M in the sling, that's what a sling is for IMO! Xx

Glad I'm not alone! H came home, made dinner, bathed the children, settled M and read E a bedtime story! He's my hero!! He then told me he has to go away tomorrow boooo!!!

Teething is HIDEOUS. But thankfully, it seems the worse it is here, the shorter it lasts.
We had a night last of literally waking every hour. Gah.

Sending hugs! Can someone send you Anbesol/teething powder in the post?

It's a bit better today. He will at least go down for short amounts of time so ice managed to eat breakfast and not resorted to the sling yet!!
