For Mr Bee

Tonight I write a note to my little boy, Bee.

Hey my Turkey-
Last night was one of the hardest nights I've ever had with you. You were up every hour, if not twice or three times. I couldn't figure out what was wrong. I changed you. I rocked you to sleep. I sang to you. We tried drinking water. Nothing worked.
It didn't help that your dad was out of town, hunting for moose with Grandpa Waggoner.
I prayed that I would know what was the matter with you. I prayed hard. Then the next time I woke up, you had a stuffed up nose. You don't get these very often and when you have in the past, you have been teething.
Sure enough, we turn on the light and you are pushing through not one, not two, not even three teeth but FOUR! All at the same time. No wonder you were in so much pain. You are making your 'stomach' teeth, as some call them. No wonder you threw your beloved Goldfish crackers on the ground. Poor fellow!
I'm not sure why you decide to push your teeth through when your dad is gone. It happened when he was gone in February too! It's hard on your mom to do it by herself.
So now I know what your crying is about, we went to the library today and got new books. We sat and snuggled in the purple chair. I'm sure the next couple days will be tough but at least now I know what's going on.
Do you think next time you could warn me? I mean we could rearrange dad's hunting schedule or something! :)
I love you, Little Man! I'm so glad that you are my son. You are one of the best things to ever to happen to me. I love you so much. Please don't forget that.

Heart you,
your mom

So now you know when hubby schedules a trip, YOU need to schedule an appointment to the MD for some nerve pills.

Hang in there, little mamma.

I've just caught up on all your blog posts and I feel like a HORRIBLE bloggy friend! I haven't been able to get reading blogs lately and I didn't know you were having a hard time of it...with you husband gone, sept. 11th...Hilary Weeks concert or song :)... Seriously love her!

I love your my bloggy Alaskan friend who I hope someday we cross paths in real life and can meet! You are such an incredible person...and I can tell, a VERY good Mom!

Hope your day is better today!

I love the idea of writing notes to your kids. I will have to do that sometimes. I am very sorry that you have to go through all 4 teeth at the same time, but at least you won't have to go through it 4 seperate times. I just wish Josh's would finally pock through instead of trying and then nothing and trying again.

That's a lovely letter! Poor littl'un. Hope the teeth are through quickly.

Meanwhile.. am dropping by to thank you for joining in with my 'blog candy against word verification' campaign HERE

You have two entries in the draw. Best wishes with that! :o)

I would encourage you to protect your blog, though, by switching ON Comment Moderation. This will stop the occasional spam comment from getting through, without causing any problems for visitors to your blog.

You're such a wonderful mom! You'll have to put the letter in his baby book for him to read when he gets older.
