  4. >I know. When you tell him to smile, that's what you get these days. I was going to add to my comment that Kristin's nieces look angelic and non-threatening, but I then thought I shouldn't draw any more attention to the semi-choke-hold he's got on his sister.

    >Kitty, if it's any comfort, my nieces are now old enough to have discovered that if one of them dares to have something the other one wants (an especially problematic situation when only one of said item exists), biting, knocking each other off the furniture, and/or stealing the item and running all work really well. :o)
