My 10 month old son has really impressed me with his calm easy going nature…until now. He’s been getting his first teeth in for the last couple of weeks and it has really changed his personality. All of a sudden he’s a whole lot more fragile. If we can get him distracted with something else for a while he goes back to his normal self but most of the time he’s clearly very uncomfortable. It’s funny to think that getting one’s first teeth is a traumatic experience shared by all humanity (all mammalia for that matter) but there’s absolutely no bonding or commiseration about it because it happens before we develop long-term memory or the ability to speak. Hmmmmm. Well I hope it’s over soon; he’s just miserable.
