Hahaha! Love this! Especially the apple up the nose. I hope the next people who come to see your place buy it. No, I hope no one ELSE comes to see your place, but that someone who already did buys it. That's better. (And while I'm at it, I'll go ahead and hope for a nice long nap for you... ;)

And poor you, 7 teeth and an ear infection?! Eeek. Maeve has no teeth and no hint of teeth. And, thankfully, no ear infection...
