Bad Behavior

For anyone wondering if it is possible for children to be assholes, be assured, it really, really is.

The Prawn is not generally an asshole. In the traditional sense, I suppose it's not really fair to apply the asshole label until one knows how NOT to be an asshole, but let me just go on to tell you how tired I am of teething.

What kind of crappy design flaw is it to have teeth come in one at a time, causing apparently excruciating discomfort with every new gnasher? Surely, someone, somewhere should be working on a way to get all of the buggers to come in at the same time so that we could all GET A LITTLE SLEEP AROUND HERE.

Oh my god do I totally hear you. P is in a total asshole phase, and I'm hoping to god it's teething and not that she's actually an asshole. Teething sucks. Big time.

I'm also with you 100%. It's brutal as all hell, and it's making me INSANE (well more so than before).

Maybe we should invent some kind of baby dentures or something.

that's what mr. dd said; just knock all the fuckers out and replace with something titanium that can't rust, decay or split. good plan, says I.

Our Prawn has just produced his first miniscule tooth. I find it hard to tell whether he was unusually cranky in the run up to its appearance because he has been a little sod on and off for months. In the nicest possible way, naturally.

We are going through the same thing! No teeth until 12 months, and since then, it seems we've had one every fortnight or so. It's horrible!
