Mary Grace wasn't one of those children who got teeth without a lot of fuss. Oh no. My girl screamed like they were killing her. Maybe she thought that if she was loud enough the teeth would change their minds and decide to stay out of her mouth... Not sure. We went through a lot of infant Tylenol, though. A lot. And I remember saying more than once, "Babies should not be allowed to get teeth until they are old enough to say, 'Mother, may I please have some Tylenol?'!"
Well. Tonight she came up to me and pointed at one of her teeth and said, "Mom, this tooth is coming in and it's really bothering me. Can I have some medicine?" and a chorus of toothy angels sang in my head.
