A Spoonful of Sugar

After two days of struggling with Henry to take his medicines, he's begun to take them like he wants them. We've been obliged to hold him down and coax the medicine into his mouth by holding his nose and sometimes double dosing with as much as ended up on our clothes or the floor. This usually took two adults and involved 10 minutes of screaming. The really good news is that this is the hardest part of the last couple of days. He's been energetic and in a great mood. We've been enjoying the weekend around the house, venturing out into the holiday craziness only in spurts. For now we're content to rest for another home day free of medicinal battles.

Children and medicines are never fun. Hope you have a great day today!

Bummer about the medicine struggles. Why do they have to taste so "yucky".
