The first time I gave Kateelyn some Tylonol, it was an absolute NIGHTMARE! I swore to TEACH her how to take her medicine so future dosings would go smoothly, and so I wouldn't ruin another outfit with the red or purple syrup she spit out.
I decided to teach her to drink from a plastic syringe, so the future dosings would be more manageable. THIS WORKED PERFECTLY!
I started (occasionally) feeding her thin baby cereal through these little plastic syringes. I only did it often enough so she would remember how to do it. A few times a day, and then only once a month after she got the hang of it.
This was SO EASY and she thinks its fun too- BONUS! Now, when she is sick or needs medicine, I know she will easily down that dose of faux-grape flavored syrup.
Here she is - loving the milked-down rice cereal. Mmmmmm Mmmm good!

Today I'm thankful for the Bountiful Baskets Co-Op. I love getting fresh yummy produce. For only $16.50 and a few minutes out of my usual Saturday morning activities, it's worth it to me. I realize that BB is not for everyone, but i love it-and I'll shout it from the rooftops!
4 oranges (or tangerines?)
1 green leaf lettuce
2 bunches of asparagus
2 head broccoli
1 head cauliflower
I weighed all the food on my food scale (which i LOVE) and it came to13.35 pounds.
And now i use the calculator....
$.80 per pound. Not bad, especially when your getting things like asparagus, apples, mangos. Yum!
