So now we know

As I eluded to last week. Things have really sucked recently at Chez Davey. Ruby screamed enough to make our eyes bleed due to croup and then suspiciously, when the cough and gasping pleasantries had passed, she continued with what we considered extra special bonus screaming for several days. WTF? So we dosed her up with Advil every 6 hours, re-inserted our earplugs and resumed clawing at blackboards in an attempt to block it out and called it a day.

Last night my mom came over to watch the girlies and give us a break from the Incessant Howling of Doom so we could go to the first drinking party I have attended since college where the express purpose was The Booze and oh, maybe costumes. Don't ask us about ours. They were horrifyingly lame, but the booze was much needed. Also? Taquitos. Anyway, Roob, yeah, so Mom was holding her while we were scurrying to get ready and she was all " um she has a tooth." Whaaa? So I suppose it would suffice to say that Roob has, in effect, handed us a roadmap pointing to Suckville population Me where she will be heading 19 more times or so in the next year.

Some days, it DOES make you wonder why we do the giving birth thing more than once, doesn't it?
I've always heard that after the first few teeth, things get easier so I'll hope that's the case for ya'll.
Otherwise, brilliantly funny post as always

God, you get to do all the fun stuff. I've never been to a drinking party in my life.

And dude, I totally will join you in Suckville, because I wouldn't take Hopie to Morgantown last night, even though the concert was cancelled and I am broke, broke, broke. So, I officially am a "horrible mom" now.

Ain't life grand?
