Yesterday I got a call from the dentist's office telling me I had missed my appointment. Somehow it came out that the receptionist calling me had a 6 month old. We got to talking and of course my stress about Claire's sleep came out. Do you know what she said to me?

"You're the one with the problem. She's just being a baby."

Nothing like a short and sweet little zinger to put things in perspective. Now that's a good dentist's office.


  1. Do you know what problem you have Deb? You have the same problem that every woman has had since Cain and Able, you have a baby! They're hard dangit!

  2. Actually, I thought it was kind of reassuring. I've been so focused on what's wrong that I forgot to just let her be a baby and have faith that things will even out without me having to force it.

  3. I've always thought you were the one with the problem, Deb! ha ha Thank you dentist's office!

  4. (This is Dustin) I just came upon this computer that had cute pictures of a baby and so I was drawn in to read. I have a few comment since I am a father and all.

    1. This is common with most babies at this age.
    2. It does get better.
    3. This is natural. Babies are just hard.

    Love you guys....Dustin
