An Old Family Recipe For Teething Pain

It looks like L. has decided to be an overachiever on this one, and has started teething ahead of projected schedule, adding an extra level of stress to all our lives in the process.

Fortunately, I remembered being told that my great-great-grandfather had the perfect solution to this kind of stress – fine brandy.  (Not for the baby’s gums, mind you . . . but in the bottle.  I’ve decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he didn’t mean the baby’s bottle.)

This hasn’t done anything for L., but I’m feeling no more pain from his teething, at least.

Disclaimer:  All of this is tongue-in-cheek, of course.  I’m pretty sure my great-great-grandfather never actually recommended this.  I say this because he was Irish, so I figure if he had said something like this, he would have recommended whiskey instead.
