Cue cry/whining from the toddler girl

Yep. See? It’s like what they gave you at Disneyland when your finger had a boo-boo.
NO! I WANT FISNEYLAND!!
We can go see Goofy after you are all better. Don’t you want to feel better?!? Here, let’s try the medicine…
NO! NO WAY!! FISNEYLAND !!
Cue my hubs entering the room. He says…
“Conner just scarfed up three tablets and just asked for more medicine.”
Did you hear that, Hallie! Conner ate his meds and he’s gonna eat yours if you don’t!! OH CONNnnnnNEEEEERRRRRRR
…the sound of running feet…
Hallie grabs the tablets and shoves them in her mouth.
NO COFFER! I EAT DEM!

cue me talking to hubs..
That kid’s getting an extra toy at the store.
