Commence Deworming

There are some things you pretty much never have to do in the U.S., except for pets that is, that become a part of ordinary life here.

Today our sweet little girl joined the de-worming club. So, just how do you de-worm a 2-year-old? Pretty much the same way you do an animal. Hide something nasty in something they like and send it down with peanut butter. Not looking forward to the other end of the process...
