You know what's a might powerful aid in dealing with a cranky toddler when the afternoon hours are passing so very slowly?

A liberal dose of Frangelico. For me, not the toddler. He's still cranky, but after a couple of hits of hazelnut liqueur I don't mind so much.

"Never drink because you need it," says the GK Chesterton quotation framed on our kitchen wall, "because that is rational drinking, and the way to death and hell. But drink because you do not need it, for this is irrational drinking, and the ancient health of the world."

That souns great (hic!). I wonder if Gilbert Keith ever had the care of two children under two for so much as an hour, much less an afternoon?
