This is perhaps the funniest blog post that you have ever written. Maybe sleep deprivation brings out your inner comedian?

Sadly, I didn't think of "3- number of hyland's teething tablets I gave Charlie
10- number of hyland's teething tablets I was tempted to give Charlie" until after I posted.

In even sadder news, even sucking up won't help with my latent bitterness over the fact that you get to go away for 2 days and I don't.
