06:00 am: 'nother elephant tractor
The Christmas/Teddy's birthday package came from Peter's parents. It included a Czech advent calendar featuring Krtek, the cartoon mole. I'm not sure what moles have to do with Christmas, but Teddy doesn't care. To him, it's another source of chocolate.

So now he gets one in the morning and one after dinner. A bunch of the chocolates in the Krtek calendar shook loose in shipping, so we have to carefully control what Teddy sees when we open the windows. Otherwise, he might get the idea that he's going to get 3 chocolates at once.

My department had our holiday dinner last night (there was a great deal of garlic involved; I'm already queasy and figure on staying that way for another day or so), so Teddy was home with Peter for the evening. He went to bed late, but apparently very smoothly.

He saves his freak-outs for me. I suppose I should be flattered, but I have trouble mustering that response in the wee hours of the morning.

In fairness, he didn't precisely freak out last night - just nursed endlessly. The freak-out was this morning, when he was insisting "sit Mama PB." Fortunately, he settled down in his high chair with the airplane Christmas tree ornament (his constant companion, these days), some (organic) cheese crackers, (organic) pear slices, and (diluted) juice.

It's almost too bad, because I'm curious what's up with Marco, the newly-adopted baby on Sesame St. Just not curious enough to nurse a hangover* in front of the PB.

* Less than an ounce of wine in an hour shouldn't give a person a hangover, right? Especially when that person also drinks at least 48 ounces of water, right? RIGHT? It's probably the freakin' garlic.

Yes, I always blame the garlic...

Hi Kate,

This made me laugh. I thought I was the only one that can't handle more than a glass of wine -- usually champagne because I can't stand the taste of wine.

Cheers and Happy Holidays to you all!

Re: Yes, I always blame the garlic...

I've always been a lightweight when it comes to alcohol. Half a beer, and I'm ready for a nap under the table. But I've never had an alcohol-related hangover before, either. Plenty of dance hangovers (I get dehydrated if I don't have at least 1, preferably 2, bottles of water an hour), but not alcohol.

Oh well.
