Forget that silly black fly in your chardonnay

The one nice thing about a child who gets teeth late (and we're talking "12 teeth at 27 months" late) is that he can actually announce his teething pain and request some relief in a civilized fashion. But when said child is so old that he's outgrown the liquid drop medication and all that you have to offer him for his teething pain are chewable children's Tylenol tablets? That, my friends, is true irony.

I realize this is not exactly what you were seeking, but...just what's so ironic about a black fly in your chardonnay? That's always bothered me about that song...

(There is liquid tylenol for children (not infants),

You can use that liquid children's Tylenol or Motrin -- it comes with little cups. If he won't take the cup, use the dropper left over from the infant stuff.

A fly in ANY sort of wine is very ironic. I clearly remember one time pouring a glass of a really killer zinfandel, good stuff, and turning around to discover a bug in my glass. Do you pick out the bug and drink it anyway? ACK.

Oh, the poor kid! How frustrating!

Kristy beat me to the Tylenol suspension, but I was going to add there is a Motrin suspension for toddlers/preschoolers, too. That seems to work better than Tylenol for Liam, for what it's worth.

Not to get off topic (again) but, referencing Kristy's comments, that song always bothered me, too.
