Mother's Little Helper

Parents of young children (and here, I am specifically referring to the toddler variety) sometimes need a little something at the end of the day to help them decompress/relieve the stress that comes from living with a three foot, 28 pound volcano (the comparison is apt--even when they are “dormant,” you are constantly waiting for the next eruption).  A good cocktail (or two) is often just the thing that us moms and dads need to forget the drama of the day. Here is one that Jason and I are enjoying thus far, this summer!
