Dear Kate,

Teething sucks. That said, I have never been happier than the times that I find another tooth has popped through after weeks of terrible sleep. That pointy white tooth says, "its okay, Mommy! You don't have to feel bad for the number of times you've given your child Tylenol at night. Your baby hasn't decided she hates you, after all! Good job! You made it through another tooth! All the crying, all the thrashing about, all the not-sleeping-for-longer-than-15-minutes-at-a-time - it was teething! It wasn't that you are a terrible mother who is accidentally training her child to only scream and never sleep. It was just temporary! ....probably."

Talking teeth. I probably need some more sleep.
