What A Grind!

Now I don't want you to get the wrong idea from this post.
.
I love my boy.
.
With all my heart.
.
He is my universe.
.

.

I love gazing into these.....
.

.

I'm partial to nibbling on one of these.....
.

.

I'm happy to rub noses with this.....
.

.

I can never resist kissing these.....
.


.
And it always makes me happy to see this....
.


.
But when he's asleep, that saintly-smile turns into my nightmare!
.
You see, at night, boy*jelly grinds his teeth.
.
A lot.
.
Loudly.
.
Every. Single. Night.
.
I can hear him through the wall.
.
I expect to go in one morning to find he has ground his teeth down to stumps!
.
Finger-nails on a blackboard I can cope with.
.
I could listen to the squeaking of polystyrene blocks rubbing together all day.
.
A key scraping against metal would be bliss.
.

But when it comes to bone grinding against bone, I have to put a pillow over my ears and hum to myself!

My daugther has had periods of teeth-grinding too. It is really surprisingly loud!
I hope your son stops doing it soon, so you can get some sleep :-)

My husband and 18 month old are both teeth grinders I sometimes wish they did not have teeth at all.

I've got one of those too ! Boo is a real grinder and I'm also surprised wondering why she still has teeth left to grind !
I love the vintage books, you can't beat them can you.
