Ms. Know-it-All & Her Sidekick Blister Butt

When LO was still cooking, we signed her up for daycare in my traditional get one more thing off the checklist way.  We had to sign off on ten points of daycare including your kid will get sick and some will get sick a lot, the no biting policy and you can't call your kid a genius and expect special treatment.  I started crying on the way home from signing her up as I was convinced that she was going to be bitten as I was really shy as a kid. Now that LO is six months (boooyaaaaaa) I realize that she is more likely to bite someone and she is the kid that will get sick if someone coughs a mile away and everything gives her a reaction. 

So we start rice cereal this week and I did a ton of research on which is easiest on the tummy and any additives that may be in the cereal, blah, blah, blah.  There is a small group of people that might even be remotely interested and I am getting bored even writing about it.  So I end up asking people at Mommy & Me these inane questions and of course no one cares that much about rice cereal.  Why should they??? I end up sounding like a Know-it-All when all I am really trying to find is someone who has a kid that has a reaction from simple things like teething tablets like LO! Yes, you read correctly!

Poppins called me on Friday to tell me that LO was screaming and having a hard time breathing. I came home and she was breathing like she was having an asthma attack and had a horrible diaper rash with blisters. So I did some more research on Hyland's Teething Tablets and they have an inactive ingredient of lactose so we stopped giving them to her and the rash is down to one blister.  This incident has made me even more nervous for food but we are taking the leap this week and I am going to try and hide my obsessive Internet research habit a little better.
