rolling, rolling, rolling and a peanut butter tip

The peonies are long gone, but I just found this picture.
Thomas rolled over onto his belly for the first time tonight! And I was the only (very proud) witness. I have what feels like a zillion things lined up to post about, but this one will be short and sweet. And it will make your life 67% more pleasant. It's kind of along the same lines as rolling...
If you buy natural peanut butter, you know that there's always a pile of oil on top, and really dry peanutty butter at the bottom. And mixing them can be a pain. My mother-in-law gave me a tip that works like a charm - take your unopened new jar, and turn it upside down at room temperature for a day or so when you bring it home. The oil will reach for the top (well, bottom), self-mixing in the process. Kind of like magic.
