In Case Any of You Thought I Was Pretending to be Perfect

"Is she off the bottle?" asks the doctor at Colette's checkup.
"Of course!" I respond.
"You know it's bad for her teeth."

"Oh yes."
"She really doesn't need it anymore."


"Yes, I know."

I am pretty sure the doctor knew I was lying through my teeth. But if you have any advice on weaning a redhead from her beloved Juice Ba Ba, please let me know. Because my experience thus far that is that it's like denying breast implants to Heidi Montag.

Or forbidding a hormonal prepubescent admittance to the next Twilight spectacle.


In other words, a task fraught with Herculean difficulties that only the very courageous - or very ignorant - can undertake. At least not without some heavy doses of Pinot Noir.

If you can get her off the bottle, there is hope that I can get Claire of "the thumb".

What an adorable red head she is!
She looks happy with her bottle, I'd leave her alone.
