Popsicle Bribery 26/31 #sol17
So I did what any sleep deprived mother would do. I used popsicle bribery. Thankfully I had just bought some Frozen popsicles. I mean Frozen in the sense that Elsa, Anna and Olaf were on the box and apparently the mini popsicles were in colors to match the characters. Doesn't really matter. All I know is it worked.
Armed with two syringes of medicine, one with cherry Tylenol and one with the dreaded pink stuff, and a sippy cup full of milk, I was able to coax my child to swallow the nasty stuff. We got into a routine although I wouldn't call it a rhythm: squeeze a little bit of Tylenol into her mouth, squeeze a little bit of the pink stuff, take a swig of milk, and then mommy promises a popsicle when it's all over. And repeat and repeat until finally all medicine has been taken.
We have to do this for ten days?! Crap.
I think I'm going to need to buy more popsicles.
