Mom of the Year I am NOT

So for the last few weeks Violet will wake up from a nap or in the middle of the night (no she is not sleeping through the night) and just scream bloody babe-let murder screams and there is nothing I have found that I can do to help her until she screams through it. Not everyday but probably every third day. I could not for the life of me figure out what was wrong with her. She has never been a good sleeper so her sleep patterns have never been "normal" to me. The other day I decided to feel around in her mouth to see if she was getting any new teeth since she had not gotten a new one since Thanksgiving. She has been living with the basic 8 for months. Well lo and behold she had 2 new teeth (not in order but scattered but this is normal for her). She also has a HUGE mound where a molar is coming through. All I could think is DUH MOMMY.....WHAT GOOD AM I????????? Of course she has been crying she has been teething like crazy. She woke up from her afternoon nap screaming and this time I notice her putting both her hands in her mouth while screaming. Poor thing was in pain. After a dose of Motrin things were back to normal. Just goes to show myself that I can read all the books and blogs in the world but I can still miss the obvious. I feel awful but I bought her some stuff from BabySteals to make up for it. And the Easter bunny is going to need a wheelbarrow to tote all the goodies she is getting.

Aww poor thing! I know it'll continue until they're all in, but I hope she's feeling better at the moment. Don't beat yourself up over this. I'll probably be a completely clueless mom when it's my turn! You just learn as you go along :)
