Aprons and Tide pens and screaming babies with vampire teeth, oh my!

Sure as shit, today is just going to be one of those days...

So, Kaylee has her bottom 2 teeth in, right? The two top teeth usually come next, right? Well, uh - not so much with my kid. She's got her two little vampire teeth poking through under the gums and they are SHARP. I wish they'd just come through already.

Anyway, I'm officially declaring today Screaming Vampire Baby Day at our house because that is all that's going on around here. Screaming. And screaming. And screaming. I'll be screaming next - anytime now. Poor kiddo is only happy if she's being held, and it's really hard to eat, take a shower and dry my hair while holding a child. Hence the screaming child who cannot be held every waking moment.

In an effort to maintain my sanity and happiness, I am going to tell you about a few happy things that you really need to be aware of.

Let's start off with some giveaway news. Who doesn't love a giveaway, right?

First giveaway: It's week three of Mama Kat's apron giveaway. This week she's featuring aprons from another great seller at etsy.com. This is my favorite apron in her etsy shop. Isn't it cute? I think it definitely has my name written all over it. So, click here to visit Mama Kat and to enter the giveaway for yo bad self.

Second giveaway: Summer at Le Musings of Moi is having one of the coolest giveaways I've ever heard of. It's a care package, carefully selected and prepared by Summer herself. It's got skin care, makeup, a headband, nail polish, and more! It sounds so girly and fun and fantastic. I'm hoping I win that one, too. So, click here to visit Summer and check out her giveaway.

Third giveaway: I'm jumping up and down for joy over this one! Do you remember me telling you about how I was about to embark on a beautiful relationship with a little something called the Tide to Go pen? Well, a certain someone who works with Tide is overnighting me some of these little beauties to give away to my fabulous readers! So, hang on to your hats because that will be happening soon and very soon.

In other news, you need to check out April over at April Showers by clicking here. She was the featured blogger over at SITS yesterday and she's working with me to redesign my blog. I know, I know - I just redid the layout not long ago, but it's just not what I'm looking for, and I'm Photo Shop challenged. She's got lots of orders, so a bit of time will need to pass before the changes are up, but I'm totally excited about it.

Well, please excuse me and my ringing ears as I attempt to pry my squealing child off of me so I can go finish getting ready for my day.

Where's my damn chocolate!?!?

I feel for you.... hopefully it will be fast and not too much more pain(I mean, your death from the vampire baby)!

Great giveaways btw!

Fun news about the Tide pens! Love those things.... wonder where mine ran off to?

Poor Kaylee, I really hope those mean teeth give her a break. I'm sure you've tried Hylands teething tablets, right? Or baby orajel? Or a whiskey sour? :)

Hope you get a break soon. Hugs.

Tide to Go Pens work wonders for teachers as well. There have been many a time where I spilled coffee down the front of a white t-shirt. Hope Kaylee feels better soon!

I do NOT miss those screaming days. I feel for you. My oldest got his vampire teeth in first, too!! Except they were really his first, he didn't get the bottoms first. lol Thanks for sharing the give aways with us and I'm excited about seeing your blog redesign, even though I like yours as it is!

Cool! Your first sponsored giveaway! You hit the big time baby! And I'm dying to see what your new blog will look like! And I hope the Vampire Baby can stop screaming soon ... can you give her Baby Motrin or something? I also remember rubbing some kind of Orajel stuff on my son's gums when he went through this. Can't remember exactly what it is called though. Hang in there ... it will get better once they get through ... until the next ones come! ARGH! I feel for you!

Sera said...

Oh, yes. :) We are on an every 4 hours Infant's Tylenol routine today. We also use Hyland's teething tablets as needed in between. I was really hoping the orajel would work, but she FLIPS if we try to give it to her, so I'm thinking the numbing sensation just doesn't agree with her. A friend of mine just told me about these mesh feeder things that they can chew on, so you can put ice or frozen fruit/veggies in there for them to knaw on and it's supposed to help, too. Poor baby. It's gotta be painful.
