This boy may be the death of me. See this face - it's ornery! He's very stubborn - I don't know where he gets this (coughing under my breath - Jade)!
He will not do a single thing you want him to do, unless he decides he wants to do it. For example, he's been sick. He requires an antibiotic & a steroid for his cough. Then, throw on a little dibby dab (quoting Abbie here) of Mucinex Cough. Jade & I were holding him down multiple times a day to dose him like a calf. He would in turn spit on my floor. Hello - I have a sign that says No Spitting on the Floor - where does he come off with the idea that he can spit on the floor?!? Or again in my eye (FYI - Mucinex burns eyes). So...I decided to let him do it himself. I told him if he takes his medicine he gets gum. Well low and behold - it took him half an hour or more, but he slowly would come and get a syringe full at a time and he finally took all his medicine. No spitting involved! Who knew?!? You couldn't manipulate him into it like Aubrie, but you had to let him decide when he wanted to do it.
So we're on to our next biggest struggle. The potty.
