I took a leave of absence yesterday because our baby has colds and a slight fever. We think it has something to do with another set of erupting teeth also at the lower jaw. She is also a little disgruntled lately. She rarely smiles to people she does not know. Even I have difficulty making her smile sometimes unlike her early months.

When I told this to a friend, she said that early tooth eruption means a smarter child. I do not know if this is true. That made me question myself if I can foster an environment to make Iya an exceptional child. There are mommies who search for the best toys, things, and other thingamagicks for babies while I take in experiences as they come. My brother seems to know more than I do, recommending developmental videos and asking me to buy it. I wish mothering is like a textbook, you can review in advance just like school.
