My mother = absolute GENIUS!
Charlie has been an absolute monster all day long. He's teething, the tooth is right there it just needs to break. So mom suggested giving him a freezie, but instead of cutting it straight across, just cutting the corners(and making them rounded so he didnt cut his mouth) so that the freezie stays inside but he gets the juice and the cold of the ice to chew on. Worked perfectly, he loved it, and was much happier afterwards (for about an hour anyways :S lol)
