Mr. Pig

I have a teething 1 year old!!!! I think that about sums up the week.

Chubs has not sprouted teeth since December 2009. I kid you not. The boy had 8 brand spanking new teeth to welcome 2010.

Then last week, badda bing badda boom, my sweet little boy turned crazy. He became bipolar. One second he wanted me to hold him. The next second he wanted to be put down. Over and over again. It was quickly getting old.

Then there were the screams in the middle of the night. Goodness!!! I even tried medicating the poor kid. Motrin AND Tylenol...or should I say the generic brands of these drugs. It bought a few precious moments of shut eye.

Teething rings, frozen waffles, toys, various body parts of my husband all fell victim to Chubs.

Here is one such victim. Mr. Pig.

Mr. Pig is now deaf. Chubs almost got his snout off too.

Mr. Pig is left with one leg.

Poor Mr. Pig

Mr. Pig was a stress ball shaped like...well a pig. He was actually Princess Ninja's toy. I guess Chubs was so stressed about teething that Mr. Pig is no longer the same.

For those of you who are concerned, Chubs did not swallow any of Mr. Pig's parts. He was so gracious enough to spit them out on the floor.

To give the week that added boom it was missing, Princess Ninja was bitten in the eye. Breathing, eating, playing. A few days later, she was back to normal.

What a great week! Glad it's over!


  1. I hope this week is a little less dramatic!

  2. Good luck to you! If it makes you feel better, my little monster bites his big brother when his big brother takes his toys away. I guess that's little monster's way of fighting back. Oh yeah, you may also want to try popsicles. Helps soothes the gums and tastes yummy too.

  3. Oooh poor mr. piggy LOL. Hope this week will be easier on you guys. Teething can really be a pain in you know where.

  4. Awww! That is so cute. Wow I don't miss those days at all! :)

  5. Poor Mr. Pig, that is some powerful teething! And the bite on the eye, ouch! You have had the week Mama!
