It's 9 a.m., do you know where your child is?

I do.

She's still asleep.

And I have thanked Baby Jesus for this blessed Christmas miracle.

Anna was toothless for many, many months. I skipped all the sleepless hocus pocus that many teething children churn out in the early months. I got my full 8 every night, and I was grateful, truly grateful.

Then one tooth came in and another and another and another. Now we're up to four teeth with more on the way, and not only has my child paid dearly, but so have I.

I think the teething gods have smiled upon our family because for the past few nights, my child has slept like an old farm dog. Soundly, quietly, peacefully. There's nothing sweeter than that.

And now I realize that I have probably jinxed all of this and my next post will discuss how the demon has been released once again. I will be ODing on pots of coffee and Girl Scout Samoa cookies to get through the next batch of teeth.

For us it is always cycling through. She is a bad sleeper (which really means up once a night) when she has a tooth coming in and sleeps soundly through the night after they get here. We just had 2 come in at the same time and we are at a total of 7 so I am hoping that we are done for at least a little while. I know, my bad teething nights are nothing compared to others.

My wee child has never sleep more then 4 hours at a stretch so I am super jealous. I do hear it's the worst thing ever when the molars come in. So we have that to look forward to.
