the best thing to keep in mind about teething is that itís far worse on the parents than the baby. i mean sure the baby is crying and itís poo poo but the baby doesnít remember and itís normal. it just sucks for you. and the reason I bring that up is that itís not uncommon for parents to want to get paracetamol or ibuprofen to calm their kids, and I like to remind parents that theyíre giving their kids drugs just to suit themselves.

parts of raising a baby suck and teething is one bit but itíll be over and youíll be glad you didnít load your kids with drugs just so you could get a bit more rest


note : not accusing anyone here of doing that, and also not discounting that sometimes you reallt do just need to fuckin sleep

I piss more often now at night than I did when I used
to drink beer, probably because I half dehydrated myself before hitting bed.

It does suck but nothing good is gained without sacrifice. Your kidneys thank you.


Also, who wore it better :




watuary or veganuary

went out for dinner and drinks, first time meeting gfs brother and first time heís been back in nz for a couple decades and the first time theyíve been at a bar in over a year since theyíve been holed up in london

i stuck to sparking water

gently caress the beer looked good

and it wasnít too hard to not have a drink because of watuary. post watuary turning down a beer will be harder because i canít hide behind this international movement

Iíve had little lapses here and there but iíve also been much more mindful of drinking more water and have drastically reduced other things, including caffeine, which has been very good.

even though Iím not doing a 100% run i still feel successful.

i haven't been a good adherent but it's helping me reduce coffee and alcohol and set a good water baseline

aiming for 100oz of water daily has helped a bunch because, yeah, it starts to crowd out other drinks and after a while it replaced my idle coffee drinking so I have way less and only in the morning and maybe early afternoon

not true in some cities. for example in houston drinking water comes out of the trinity river which is pissed and shat out by people in dallas.
