ICLW: August

Is is really August already? I rejoined the ICLW club this summer, and can’t believe that this is the third one I’ve done!

Last month I wrote the ABC’s of Me as an introduction. You can read it and find out what size shoe I wear.

This month, well, this past week, anyway, mostly has been spent getting back into the swing of the school year. Classes start Monday, and this past week I’ve been setting up my classroom, trying to get the kids out the door on time as practice, and refreshing my memory on such skills as packing lunches, daycare bags and setting alarm clocks.

Also? I’ve been watching as my 14 month old son cuts FOUR GIANT TEETH at one time.

Thanks for visiting and any teething tips are greatly appreciated!! (we use Motrin, Tylenol, Hyland’s teething tablets, and are looking for more creative helpers!)

  1. I don’t have a baby but I did do a lot of babysitting as a teenager and remember a great teething tool. Frozen bagels. Get a pack of lenders mini bagels at any grocery. Freeze them. The baby will hold on to them with ease and mow down on it to cool his gums. But he won’t be able to bite it so there is no choking hazard. Good luck.


  2. Teething tips: wet wash cloth, place into freezer, take out and let kiddo chew on it. Vanilla (yes, cooking vanilla) on gums taste better than teething meds, use as often as you want. Just put it on your finger, rub on his gums.

    Happy ICLW!
