Sleepless in Las Vegas
Ahh the ever popular (hah!) teething fairy has found our home once again and is spreading joy all over the magic kingdom. Oh.....My.....GOODNESS! What a miserable night leading into day if there ever was one. Marin was up ALL last night just screaming in her crib (with Tylenol on board, might I mention) and has spent the day being cranky and uncooperative. These moments really test the limits of my fragile mothering patience, and I realize so very acutely that parenting is getting more and more difficult by the day. What was I thinking?! Did the words "Honey, can we have a baby pleeeeease?????", really escape from my naive lips a little over two years ago?! Ack! Truly, there must be divine amnesia involved when parents, mothers in particular, decide to have a second child. Sure the first kid sounds fun and all, but after all is said and done and you realize how insane being a parent makes you, why in the WORLD do you choose to go at it for a second round? Some may say there isn't a God, but civilization proves you wrong (for centuries) with the procreation of 2nd and beyond children, how else could it happen?! Mmmmmm, I do love my baby girl to the ends of the earth and back, she is my sweetheart and I wouldn't trade her for anything. I know it's not her fault...magical teething dust will make any kid crazy, right? I just wish there was a magical parenting fairy....maybe one that sprinkles mind-numbing dust to dull the pains of parenthood just a wee bit, with terrible two's lurking just around the corner (and a sneak peek now, I think), a mom can only dream.
