medicate me

Sim really likes medicine - even Ambesol. She'd eat a whole tube of Ambesol if I let her. Ro always hated any and all medication and getting him to take cough syrup or anything was a nightmare - but a nightmare that I expected. Kids typically hate medicines but he's mostly gotten over it now. Completely the opposite for little Sim. I can just say, " Sim! Medicine!" and she'll come toddling in to get a spoonful/dropper full/squirt of Tylenol, Motrin or any sort of cough medicine quite happily. She'll squeal if I give Ro medicine without dosing her as well. I actually find this pretty disturbing especially the fact that she'd eat a tube of Ambesol or Orajel. yuck! What kind of kid enjoys numbing their entire mouth and tongue. She acts like I'm about to give her dessert.

But think of the uses! My mother once poured liquid antibiotics over ice cream and pronounced it a "sundae" in order to get me to take it. You have the inverse opportunity here!
