Ok so before becoming a parent, why didn't other parents warn me about how miserable it is when your children get ear infections and teeth? Common sense always told me that it would be hard but nobody really warned me about how hard it REALLY is. It is seriously the worst thing ever. This is her third ear infection in 2 months and it is the saddest thing. She is so miserable and there isn't a whole lot I can do for her. It's a very helpless feeling. So for all those parents to be out there be prepared for the awful ear infections and teething, it really is the worst thing in the world.
