Scarlet's "Special" Treat

You know when you have those moments of thought when you're thinking, yes I am really that great of a parent.  Well, I have one of those. 

My parents live in the mountains.  The deer make frequent visits to their yard and leave little presents for all to step in.  Most of the time I don't even think twice but to just walk around it when I see it and leave it at that.

I can't even remember what I was doing, but I was probably feeding Elliot, because that's all I do.  Scarlet had gone outside with somebody (like I said, I am that great of a parent).  She comes in with this look of disgust on her face.  In my head I'm thinking, oh no, what did she get her hands in.  Oh no, it's better than that.  I see it not all over her hands, but her teeth. 

Deer poo in the teeth.  Yep, parent of the year!  Let's just say she got the all-time scrub down with her toothbrush, which I then tried to sanitize as best I could.  I still shudder at the thought of what as in her mouth.
