Sadly, cheaper wines usually come with rubber "corks" and this makes my collection dramatically less. I'm going to make a trivet out of these. Otherwise I just throw them away.

Watayaknow? You are correct! I have used that washcloth method before and it definitely works. I even go one step further and formula or juice in the cloth to really get them going at it. I have to say, I am an extremely resourceful mama. I got tricks up my sleeves I ain't even used yet! The problem with the washcloth method is that it last for maybe 15 minutes and that just won't cut it at night. That's why I medicate her in the evening which is also when her teething seems to be at its worse.
I am beyond proud of my kids. I am overwhelmed at times with joy and happiness just by looking at them. I truly feel as if I could explode.

He's actually sort of scared of big dogs right now. I think he just gets nervous with any animal that's larger than him. I certainly won't be raising any children that harbor a fear of any animal. Trustworty? Hmm, not sure. He's only almost 3 and trustworthy isn't really a word that I would use to describe him. He's definitely a good kid- but he's TOTALLY a 3 year old, if you get my drift.

If Atticus ate some poop then I've blocked it from my consciousness. From what I saw, he had a massive blow out in his diaper while eating dinner. One thing led to another and he was using his poo to draw on the table. He's such a gentleman. O_o

I did a small amount of post processing giving it a sepia tone. I try very hard to not process too much unless I'm creating a mood with a boring piece. I knew this was already dramatic enough without doing much to it. I actually have a lot of pictures like this if you're interested. I can post them on my Flickr account if you'd like to look at them.

First, wow, thanks for all the comments Sharon. I do appreciate them. And I agree about the white in the lower left corner. I'm learning! I think it would look a lot better if it were darker.
