Maiaâ€™s got a cold. And a bad case of prickly heat. Her doctor prescribed antibiotics for the cold, and a steroid ointment for the rash. I donâ€™t know how this happened, sheâ€™s in front of the electric fan all the time, with her hair up and sheâ€™s always in spaghetti strap shirts. Her pedia says to bathe her at least twice a day, three times if possible. Maia would love that. She would stay in her tub the whole day if I let her. These are typical signs of teething, but her gums remain smooth at the edges, and although you can see the bumps that are her teeth, they are adamantly refusing to break through. Iâ€™ve been told late teething is good because the baby is now big enough to withstand the pain and discomfort. I donâ€™t know. She seemed especially irritable this morning, when we went out for our usual bill-paying foray. She used to be so well-behaved, but this morning she would not abide standing in line. No bills got paid this morning. Try again tomorrow, theyâ€™re not due till the 9th anyway.
Sheâ€™s been asleep for two and a half hours now, probably fatigued from the screaming fit she threw at the bank this morning. I hope she wakes up in a better mood. It breaks my heart to see her miserable.
