Dentata

Dear O's Two Front Teeth,

First of all, as we have not been formally introduced, please allow me to extend a heartfelt, Wyoming "Howdy" to you two gents. I am O's Mama. I wish I could say it was a pleasure to meet you. Really, I do.

As you may be aware, the two of you are kinda sorta taking just a little bit of a LONG-ASS time showing up. Currently one of you (we'll call you Righty) is just barely displaying a sharp white ridge and you, Lefty are still shyly peeking out from what can only be described as a tender, sore, swollen, painful looking little gum. While I certainly understand that you wouldn't want to rush in to anything, especially some of the things that find their way into O's mouth (yes DOGFOOD, I am talking about YOU) I also would plead the case that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Am I right?

So! While I am tickled MAGENTA to see you two fellas finally show up, let me just take a quick moment to pose a teensy weensy request:

PLEASE STOP TORTURING MY SON.


Thanks in advance.

Warmest regards,
Birdie

P.S. While I am, again, excited to see you both finally make your appearances, I am (I believe, understandably) pessimistic as to what your arrival may mean for my nipples. Hopefully, there will be no need to pen another such missive to address future complaints. Hopefully.

What a wonderful letter. I'm going to send it to my daughter's eye teeth.

Can I add my own letter?

Dear Buddha's Two Front Teeth,

Please stop sinking into my nipples. Save yourself for more crunchy and chewy items. Thanks.

@tata- oh no! The biting is the WORST...Sending you non-chewed on nipple vibes :-)

Very funny stuff sounds a bit on the painful side to. It is a shame how when those two tiny little teeth come in they have to cause so much discomfort.I hope the two of you adjust to it with as little pain as possible.
