Molars are no fun

UGHHHHHHHHH have you ever typed up an entire post for it not to publish and blogger didn't save it!!!! Well it just happened.

Damn f**king blogger.

Wesley now has 11 molars @ 13 months. Crazy. And his molars have taken a toll on him big time. So today we took a little trip to Saratoga (about 90 miles) and he literally screamed bloody murder the entire time. Nothing helped...

So we get there and low and behold its a poopy diaper. We change the poops, give him a snack and drink and figure were good to go. And while we were there we saw the ducks (wesleys favorite animal).

The car ride home was a disaster. Normally he naps from about 1-3 or 4 but since we were out of town I thought he would sleep there and then back. WRONG. He slept 20 min there. And 0 minutes back. He screamed and cried the entire time. So I climbed in the back seat (and no I wasn't driving :P) and tried to rub his head, give him more of a snack and drink and keep his binky in, play with his learning book...NOTTA. I knew he was exhausted. And during one of his crying spells I noticed the 3rd molar that had come in on the bottom.

Well there is the problem. I knew the molars were painful. Poor kiddo.

So we get home just after 5p..Laid him down for a short nap (I figured he would sleep about an hour or so, then get up for dinner )...WRONG AGAIN. He is still sleeping...So many times I just wanted to go in there, and wake him to eat. I feel so bad but I don't want to wake him because that would just be a disaster ever more..
I would have given him teething tablets in the car to help or some medicine for the headache I'm sure he had...but I had nothing...PLUS all the medicine is recalled so I have to return it.

Sometimes there isn't anything I can do...and yes many times I just wanted to get out of the car and walk the 90 miles back home so I wouldn't have to listen to it....but I'm so glad hes in bed now so I can relax.

But I better set my alarm for 7am because I can guarantee he will be up STARVING.
