Over an hour later and $15 poorer...

The pediatrician tells me R possibly has something viral, but is definitely cutting some more teeth. Wow, thanks for your professional medical diagnosis. Glad I sat in your waiting room for 30 minutes and then an exam room for 45 more while my child ran around like a banshee, bashed her head no less three times, and I about died of a heat stroke. He suggested Benadryl at bedtime to help with some post-nasal drip so I gave her that last night with a shot of Motrin and it did the trick. She did wake up at 3:30 when I got up to go to the bathroom, but it was better than nothing.

DH wound up on my shit list after that incident though. As I was lying in bed, waiting to see if she would just whine/cry it out like I was hoping, he leans over in my face and hisses, "If you hadn't gone to the bathroom, she wouldn't be awake. Get a bigger bladder or some diapers." I swear I almost sucker punched him in his throat. Instead I told him if he was going to make dumbass suggestions to go sleep on the couch. So he did. And R and I slept in until 9am this morning. Ahhhhh. Slumber at last.

  1. His sensitivity was overwhelming - did you remind him you are carrying his child?!?!
