They're Back

Dear Mommy and Daddy.

I didn't mean to cry all day. Truly, I didn't. Normally, when I cry, I'm just communicating, and you're able to read that, but today was different.

Although the pain was in my gums, as those teeth crawl their way through, I felt it throughout my whole body. That's why my legs tightened and went straight. That's why I swung my arms. And that's why my hands were always in my mouth.

I appreciate all the medicine you gave me but it just wasn't enough. Trust me, I tried to make them work, but there wasn't a part of my body that wasn't agonizing.

I hope this isn't a recurring thing. But if it is, I'm apologizing now for my crying later.

Don't take it personally.

The Teething One
