Be true to your teeth, or they will be false to you



Two year molars – how we collectively hate you.

We hate that you have turned our little angel, who only became a happy person at 18 months, into a non-sleeping grump.

We hate that you keep her from going down to a nap easily – requiring sometimes 2.5 half hours of effort and then ultimately that degrading feeling of failure when I give up, am emotionally exhausted and have lost the effort or will to do anything else, and she falls asleep in hair chair.  At 4pm.

We hate that you keep her from going to bed easily, requiring multiple trips to her room for an hour to an hour and a half, causing dear husband and I to snipe at each other.  We she finally falls asleep, we smile briefly at each other as we start to doze off, nearly in mid conversation.

We hate that she and Mini-ion #1 are both waking up in the middle of the night, on random nights, to crawl into bed with us.  Preventing me from waking up at 5am to get a little bit of “me” time to exercise or be on the computer because I don’t want to wake them and because I’m so tired from being up with them in the middle of the night.

We hate that all four of you won’t come in at once, but instead come in one at a time, lengthening this process to well over a month.

Hey two year molars, I’d really like to throat punch you in the face.  But I don’t know if I have the energy.
