Day 19 and 20...

Oohhhhhh the pain! You see... Olivia is 20 months old and this picture scares me. For the moment, all four of her canines are making their way through. It has been hell. She is miserable, cranky, and in so much pain. She was running a slight fever yesterday at daycare. It continued into the evening. Not to mention she was a bit constipated last night, so that did not help at all. About 7:30pm we went to her bedroom, I changed her diaper and put her in her crib. Normally, we rock, read two books, and pray. Not last night... I read a book to her while she was in her bed with her eyes half open and prayed over her tired little body. I didn't hear a peep more.

This morning I get ready to go to work (which I knew was a no-no) and woke her up about 7:15am. She was so hot. I picked her up, grabbed the thermometer, sat down on the couch (facing out, thankfully) where she proceeded to throw up any juice she had drank all night. Well, if you know me, I DO NOT do barf, for myself or anyone. And this was not any different. I was sick to my own stomach and couldn't hold her. I sat her on the floor while I cleaned up. She seemed far better off than I was! Needless to say, I didn't get her temp taken.

So, we are home today. And as I watch her dance around to Barney I knew she could have gone to daycare. But then when she is screaming, with fingers in her mouth, rubbing her eyes, and throwing a fit... I know she is miserable.

Now to the part that scares me.... if you look close you can see 2nd molars are not far behind... OY.

Sigh. The joys of Mommyhood.
