    Well put! That's why we are here - we enjoy the bourbon. Thanks to all of you who have helped me find the best bourbons in the world.

    Put the little one down about nine, grab a shower, and pour 1-2 fingers from 1-2 bottles 1-2 times a week.

    Re: What is a typical night?

    Not to derail the thread, but this question was posed to me recently.

    "If there were a bourbon that were non-alcoholic, and you couldn't tell from the taste that it actually contained no alcohol, would you drink more, less, or the same?"

    I answered that I would drink a lot more of this "magic" bourbon alone, and about the same of alcoholic bourbon with friends.

    Thursday, bourbon
    Friday, beer and bourbon
    Saturday, Wine, beer and bourbon
    Sunday, beer and bourbon
    Monday, AA
    Tuesday, light beer

    Seriously, I have a 7mo. baby and since he was born I struggle to keep my eyes open after 1 1/2 pours. He has to learn to sleep through the night.

    My grandmother always said to rub some bourbon on a baby's gums when he is teething. In my experience, it never helped with the teething but it probably helped with the sleeping through the night part. For all parties involved.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    I did that to my daughter a few months ago (she's 9 mos now). I think she liked the taste, as she proceeded in licking her lips and smacking her gums! Can't say it helped with the teething though.

    I find rubbing bourbon on my gums greatly helped with my kids' teething... maybe I misunderstood the question
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Seems like a LOT of parents of little kids are drinkers.....count me as one

    Those cold winter evenings when it gets dark at 5:00pm and the kids are screaming in your face and will be for the next 4 hours....THAT is why bourbon was invented.

    Amen, brother. I mean, God love 'em, but there are times when the little shits are going so nuts on me that all I can do to stay alive is count the hours until their bed time and then head straight for the liquor cabinet for a nice tall pour of bourbon. Yes indeed, it definitely soothes the soul and puts the blood pressure back where it belongs. Surely Ben Franklin must have said something wise on the matter.
