The last few days Paige has had a few rough times where she is super whiny and cranky. They are awful! I know the reason behind her being so upset and it is those darn molars that are trying their best to poke through. Can I tell you how much we hate teething?? Well, last night Paige had a little episode and was crying so but nothing seemed to help. After a few minutes and a few Cheetos, she was finally better. The whole time she was upset, I kept thinking, "I can not wait to be finished with teething..."
Do you ever find your self wishing things away or wishing time would go by faster? Whenever I do this, I always go back to what my Dad always said growing up, "don't wish life away"....or something to that affect. It is true...I was wishing life away last night, every time I do that I start to feel guilty and try to find the best part of life in this moment and it happened a few minutes later.....
Paige was over her meltdown and we were getting ready for bed, so I took her clothes off in the living room and told her to go get ready for a bath. Man, did she get excited. She started squealing and ran off just wearing her diaper and I swear...it was the cutest. thing. ever! She was so happy and excited. Why would I wish this away? If I wish teething away, I am wishing away this age. I am wishing away having a 18 month old baby running around with no clothes on so happy to take a bath. I am wishing away the sweet snuggles while she drinks her milk before bedtime. I am wishing away the cute hug and kiss she insists on giving me as we walk into her school. I am wishing away the clingy-ness she has started with me.... Why on earth would I wish for time to go by faster?
So now, whenever Paige has a meltdown or in tears over teething, I will wish for the pain to subside or for my happy baby back....not for no more teething.
