Teething Can Kiss My Furry White Ass

I wish there was a better way to say it guys. But there you have it. If teething were a person I would tell it to kiss my white furry ass. And then I would kick him (OH it has to be a man!) in the teeth. Just to get even. My seven month-old baby has gone from a...
