Mind over Matter!

I hope this goes ok, it's my first video post! this video is of B taking his antibiotic for his sinus infection. We have always fought him to take his meds, and it has been a PIMA! our ass actually, not just mine because it took 2 of us to get him to take it! Right now we are on round 2 of medication, so like day 13. A few days into fighting with him we started clapping like maniacs when we gave B his meds- even though he was screaming and fighting us. A few days later he started clapping to, and now he excitedly takes his meds.

Check out the video, and be sure and watch him cringe as he is clapping- this one is really really nasty tasting!

Chris and I decided we are professional parents for helping our 15mo old overcome his hatred for meds. ****pats own back**** we're figuring out this parenting thing. ;-)

it's much cuter in person but like how he answers your questions. lmao

That's hilarious! How cute! Can't your pharmacy add flavor to the nasty tasting medicine?!

What a cutie! I love the cringe while clapping. I'm surprised your pharmacy doesn't add flavor to make it taste better,Lex's tasted like bubble gum (got it on my fingers a couple times).
