Author's Notes: I know this is a few days late, but that's the way the muse bounces, sometimes. Please accept it with my apologies, and give a nod to Nomi for help with my numerous Hanukkah questions. I didn't use most of the information she gave me like I planned, but I'm very grateful for the assistance.
Menorah Teething Rings By Perpetual Motion
CJ walked into Toby's office and stopped dead. "Toby."
"Joanie's chewing on candles."
Toby's eyes came up from his report and looked over at the playpen where Joanie lay, kicking her feet. "Oh. That's a teething ring."
"It looks like a menorah." CJ walked across the floor and looked into the playpen. "It *is* a menorah."
"Rebecca found it. It was one of Joanie's Hanukkah gifts."
"Where in the world did your sister find a menorah teething ring?"
"Josh and I aren't asking. We find it safer for both our sanities." Toby stood up and walked over. He leaned into the playpen and picked up his daughter. She cooed at him. He cooed back, causing CJ to chuckle. "What?"
"I never pictured you to be a cooer."
"You should see what Josh does."
"She will not." Josh stood in the office doorway. "We're going to be late."
"Hold her." Toby handed Joanie over and reached for his coat and briefcase.
"Where are you two running off to?" CJ helped slip Joanie's arms into her coat and settled the hat on her head.
"Temple for menorah lighting. We've only got an electric, non-heating bulb one at home. We want Joanie to have the full experience."
"Even if she's to little to remember anything."
"We're parents. We spoil." Josh grinned and kissed Joanie on the cheek. "Ready, Toby?"
"Just a sec." Toby grabbed the diaper bag, handed Joanie her gray teddy bear, which she clutched hard, and grabbed his yarmulke from the edge of his desk. "Let's go."
CJ waved at them as they walked down the hall. "Happy Hanukkah, you three!"
