Next Stop: NA
June 4th, 2010
If, somewhere down the road, my child (God forbid) turns out to be a drug addict, I will look back at these early days of her life and say to myself — “yup, we saw the signs.”
Miss Mouse loves medicine.
I mean, she looooves medicine.
Tylenol. Amoxicillin. Augmentin. Omnicef. You name it, she’s taken it — gleefully.
Right now, she’s doing a course of Augmentin for a sinus infection. She takes it twice a day and I announce to her — “Time for medicine!”
At which point she bounces up and down enthusiastically, smiles broadly, and echoes back “Med-cin! Med-cin!” She then requests more when the one paltry syringe-ful is gone.
Now, I’ve never tasted liquid Augmentin, but I’m willing to wager by smell alone that the stuff doesn’t taste like Nutella. I have no idea why she’s so excited about. But I am grateful. It’s certainly made her endless rounds of antibiotics go smoothly!
