He's So Clever

Don't you love when your children start to outsmart you?

The three-year-old tried today.

He's been on medicine for the last ten days and it is yucky! He says so and just smelling it has caused me to agree with him. So, his daddy taught him a trick...pinch your nose shut and it won't taste so bad.

For the last ten days that's what we've done. He's pinched his nose while I squirted his medicine into his mouth.

Tonight was the last dose. We were celebrating that fact in anticipation of one last swallow. Finally I looked at him and said, "Okay, now hold your nose and I'll squirt the medicine in your mouth."

He replied, "How about you hold your nose and I'll squirt the medicine in YOUR mouth!"

He's so clever...but I didn't fall for it!

Ha! I remember when my three year old tried to negotiate something with me the first time. Son of a lawyer, you know.
