Intentions . . .

I had every intention of posting today about a Simpler Life in 2010.  The photos are taken.  The thoughts are rolling around in my head.  But instead I'm taking two seconds to offer up my valid excuse.  I'm spending the day holding an inconsolable baby who's got two teeth bulging in his bottom gumline causing him much distress and discomfort. Today, caring for him is What Matters Most.

Hold that baby. That's what I've been doing the last two days with my feverish, snotty, baby here. Just loving and holding all day long.

Good for you, no one can fault you for holding that adorable baby of yours. Hope those teeth come out soon!

A day with your baby is a day well spent! Consider this a very productive day.

Poor Baby! Poor Mommy! Have you tried the frozen washcloth? Wet 1/2 a washcloth, ring it out really well , roll it up, and freeze it. Then when it's good and frozen, hand him the non-wetted bit to hold as a handle and let him munch on the frozen part. The cold numbs the pain, and the pressure of munching on it will help, too.

Poor Buddy! Give him lots of love.

Oh Ollie, bite those teeth through so you'll feel better.
