If rain smells like this, we'll be all like awkward pimply teens bashing our heads and swinging our hair

I'm glad it rained today, as I finally got the chance to wear this floral jacket to work. Am I the only one who is selfish to wished for rain just so I can wear pretty jackets like this? Ha.

stripe top: Jennie Shop
floral jacket: gift
jeans: New Future
flats: Cotton On

Thankfully the son is recovering well. He's no longer that grouchy or whiny and is now running about and being cheeky again.

But being sick means having to take medicine right? And to do this, we have to outsmart this kid. Before he got this sick, we'll just add the medicine into his milk and he'll just lapped it up without any problems. But perhaps due to the medicine the hospital gave, this has become a problem. I'm not sure if its because it hospital medicine, but it smells pretty bad-ass, if you know what I mean.

One whiff of his milk bottle and he'll immediately reject it, so much so that he's only had like 3 bottles of milk for the past few days. So we had to come up with some strategy to get him to take his meds.

He loves Yakult, so we put his meds into it and he'll finished it all up, record time. I'm serious. Plus Yakult also aids in digestion, so its like killing two birds with one stone.

He loves Ribena too, so we add his meds into it as well. This is a little tricky as we can't add too much water or it'll be too diluted and if he smells the meds, he might reject it. So the trick is to add all the meds into his water bottle and then pour the Ribena concentrate in front of him. And be all happy and excited while doing it. This gets him excited too as its like a treat to him. And remember to jiggle and clapped. Its one whole performance just to get him to take his meds.


So far, all is working well! Do you have any tricks to get your child to take their medicine? Please share!

And I'll leave you with this. A little random but hey, we all need a little randomness to spice up our lives.

Peace out, yo.
