Lisa says: Molars. Need I say more?

Peyton's teething. That is all

Lisa says: Molars. Need I say more?

Look at this adorable kid. Her molars? Not so adorable

While I've been MIA for the past few days, Peyton has been NUTS. (Nuts. That's not an acronym. It's me YELLING. The kid has been NUTS.)

I'm going to make this short and sweet...because Peyps is screaming at the top of her lungs.

I'm blaming this recent crazy streak on her molars. Those #@$!*$ molars. Don't get me wrong — I feel bad for my poor baby. I remember what it was like when I had all four of my wisdom teeth pulled when I was 17. It sucked. And hurt big time. I'm imagining all four molars breaking through at the same time would feel similar. 

Besides Tempra (which, I admit, I'm quick to grab; Peter's not as keen on medicating our kids), what can we do/give her for the pain?
