Children 2 to 5

Lil Sippy Cup has been fighting off his first cold of the season. 

Since the FDA has re-called nearly all children's medicine, we have turned to all-natural cough remedies to help the little dude out.  These are usually made up of odd combinations of lemon and honey.

However, Lil Sippy Cup is not a fan of honey.

Me: "Ok, time to drink your medicine."

Lil Sippy Cup (stifling a cough): "No thanks."

Me: "Seriously, this isn't up for debate.  You were up all night coughing."

Lil Sippy Cup: " thanks."

Me: "Here.  Drink it like a big boy."

Lil Sippy Cup (grimaces while drinking a sip)

Me: "Drink it all."

Lil Sippy Cup (running away): "No!"

Five minutes later.

Me: "Ok, I'm not chasing you anymore.  Look at that, you drank only a little bit and
you're already coughing a lot less!"

Lil Sippy Cup: "If I'm not coughing anymore then why do I have to drink the rest?!"

Me: "...damn it..."

next time tell him it'll get the secret germs that are hiding out-- just when they think the medicine is gone, it comes back and gets them!

although i'm sure he'll have a good comeback for that too....
