Cocktails

Rockstar’s pediatrician always advises syringing liquid medications into babies’ or toddlers’ mouths on an empty stomach. (Because if you put it in milk and they don’t finish it you have no idea how much medication your child has taken.  Ditto when babies bring up milk and medication when you burp them). But what happens when medication so offends your toddler he can’t stop throwing it up? (Rockstar’s motto is where there’s a will, there’s a way.  Now, if he just applies that to his Harvard application, I’ll be one happy mummy.)

Rockstar has a fascination for all things grown up.  He’ll drain his milk if it’s served up in my wine glass.  So that’s how he gets his meds – a little milk cocktail served to him in his bath or in bed.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way.  Someone taught me that.

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.
