    Ellie had a WhatsApp call with her best friend today. They haven't seen each other since we started Lockdown.

    The usual giggling and screaming and chatting occured.

    But then in a lull in the convo, Ellie went, "Thomas. Thomas. I really really miss you, Thomas. I can't wait for lockdown to be over so I can see you and hug you."


    And yeah. I'm just gonna cry. Because she also said the other night that she really wishes that she had a sibling so that she wasn't so lonely during lockdowns, and so she could have a friend to play with.

    And no, sibling is not possible.

    I have no idea how long it has been since a night where Nending didn't wake up screaming and need several hours of dealing with, including sometimes an extra meal.

    I am so tired.

    Jaina has been saying the same thing. We haven't been locked down here for a while, but she really wants a sibling and it's just not in the cards.

    Athena has been camping with grandparents since Friday night and we've been talking about how much we miss her.

    Me, randomly: I kinda feel like Chili's.

    Wife: Huh? Like you want to go there to eat?

    Me: No.... I want my baby back baby back baby back

    Wife: *sighs*

    Now and then me and my wife put our son in nursery and take some annual leave so we have a day on our own.

    We spend all day talking about him.

    I genuinely cannot remember what we talked about before we had him.

    I also have no idea what I used to do when my wife was at work and I was on my days off during the week.

    Is this a baby that’s teething? Our about to be 1 year old has so many teeth coming in and it’s shit show for sleep right now. Baby drugs are our only salvation.

    Our boy is, as I may have mentioned, teething, and up to his eyeballs in Tylenol as a result. It has been a nightmare of a weekend.

    But now, on Sunday evening, he has a cough, and productive sneezing.

    I suspect he is not going to daycare tomorrow.

    We may actually cry.

  • lonelyahavalonelyahava Call me Ahava ~~She/Her~~ Move to New ZealandRegistered User regular
    Your can get through this.

    Ellie loved gnawing on Fresh cold out of the fridge pickles when she was teething.

    Didn't want none of those frozen things. Nope.

    She spent most of the time from 6 months to a year with a pickle in her hand.

    Even our formal family photos that we had done when we went to the States, stress clutching a pickle.

    Child is deploying the national strategic snot reserve. Sneezing and coughing too. He’s not off to daycare today.

    Son has impetigo.

    The antibiotics taste like absolute garbage and he spat the first dose out. It leaves at really strong after taste.

    Any suggestions on how to disguise the medicine?

    Try going back to the pharmacist to see if there's an alternative.

    When my baby needed a antibiotics cure he wouldn't swallow properly. That's how I learned you have a swallow-reflex when you're stroked under your chin (close to your where your neck starts). I'm trying to find sources, but perhaps I don't know what it's called exactly in English. Regardless: have them swallow what needs swallowing and have plenty of water and/or lemonade to follow it up with.

    Disguising doesn't work nearly as well with children as with dogs. Our taste buds are finetuned to recognize rotten or dangerous foods. I don't think I could ever fool a kid with hiding a pill in a sausage.

    Omigosh yes, I tried one time with some medicine that my kid hated. One suggestion they had was to hide it in Yogurt or Apple Sauce. The kid KNEW. Totally suspicious of me. (And yet the kid has no problem eating that piece of spiked barely-subcritical uranium when I have my back turned, what's up with THAT??)

    Ultimately we switched to a different antibiotic with help from the doc.

    You fool a kid by hiding a pill in chocolate. It worked amazingly well when we had to get our son to take meds for a week when he was a bit less than 2.

    Pharmacies will also often have the ability to add a flavor to liquid medications for kids. It doesn't always work, but it can help.

  • MulysaSemproniusMulysaSempronius but also susie nyRegistered User regular
    Last time I needed to disguise medicine, I used chocolate pudding. But it really depends on the flavor of the medicine.. Ours had a banana flavor added, which wasn't that bad, but also needed a little help.

    Sapling just got some Pokemon cards out of a cereal box, and combined with her cousin having some Pokemon plushies, she's very interested. Unf the tv show is rated TY7, and when I tried She-Ra with her (granted it was a year plus ago) she couldn't quite grasp the nuance of Adora being raised by the Horde etc. But I feel like Pokemon was always pretty straightforward.

    Additionally, fuck mystery boxes. They bought a couple for her cousins, and now she wants one of the specific toys they had gotten and so we're stuck trying to explain why mystery boxes are bad to a 4 year old.
    Little King got bitten by the Pokemon bug around the same age. The tv series are pretty straightforward and have enough cute animals and EPIC BATTLES to hold a 4 year old their attention. Some episodes can be spooky or end on cliff hangers that make it seem like a character is going to die. There's also a few episodes in the more recent series that deal with alternative dimensions and time travel that are too complex for little kids.

    If you're looking for other Pokemon stuff:
    Pokemon Playhouse as an app works great and had no IAPs or ads.
    Pokemon Cafe Mix looks cute, but does have IAPs

    The CCG is exactly that, but to play the game your sprout needs to be able to read and do basic calculations. I would never buy cards until they're old enough for this.

    Update. We decided to give it a try, and it seems to have gone over mostly well. She definitely struggles with focus towards the end of an episode, but she still gets excited if I offer it as something to watch.

    The only issue is that I forgot all of the pokemon are only capable of saying their name, and Sapling has decided she is a pikachu. It was kind of cute for a while, she will run around the house saying "Pika-pi? Pikachu! Thunderbolt!" and then throw her hands wide like Pikachu does in the show. However, when she decides she wants to be pikachu, she will only answer questions with "Pikachu" (or some shortened variation). Its like her "I am [insert disney princess here]" thing, but with a worse vocabulary.

    Yeah, its the top of the throat/base of the chin area. Basically if you rub from their chin down about halfway down the neck, it should induce them to swallow. The only issue with that is keeping it in their mouth long enough to swallow. Then follow with something very strong tasting that maybe isn't so awful, like a really sugary popsicle or something?

    My daughter is very kind hearted. Like, very.
    There was a mosquito flying around our apartment, and I told her to squish it, since she gets very bad reactions from the bites. But she only took a half-hearted slow swing. I said that if she wanted to actually get it, she'd have to be faster. But then she asked how long they live, and if she really needed to swat it. I mentioned she'd get bit if she didn't get it, and she looked at me with sad eyes and said she didn't want to kill it.

    She's 7,8 next month. She wouldn't get sad if I squished it, necessarily, but really does not want to hurt anything herself. We then made a plan to keep away all stagnant water, so no mosquito babies grow up. Apparently she's going to splash about a lot in her next bath.

    She has low iron due to Celiac's, so I don't want to go full vegetarian, but that may be next. Currently no red meat, just chicken and fish. But I know that's off the menu soon.

    How come no meat? Does she just not like the idea of something having died to make food? Either way, spinach has a shitload of iron, and the baby spinach is usually not quite as weird looking to kids as canned.

    Could just be random kid preference. My daughter is almost entirely veggie now just because she doesn't like meat except a few exceptions.

    Pretty much. She's pretty good at eating a lot of different foods, but gets sad thinking about animals dying. At the museum, we started a little white lie that the animal models all died of old age. Not sure how we're going to walk that back, but I'm hoping she's OK when she learns otherwise.

    My niece is the same way. Luckily so far, Sapling hasn't come to any similar conclusions, since my wife is Celiac, and as you pointed out, food is already restricted enough thanks to that.

    And today my son got sent home from school after another bad day of misbehaving. He's opening the door to the classroom and trying to run down the hallway. Everything is a joke to him apparently.

    The teacher's tried their best, but he's just being too disruptive. They want to focus on him "making good choices" and not him being bad. Like, he gets it. He's smart enough to understand he's doing wrong, says he'll do the right thing, and then...doesn't.

    I'm getting super frustrated with him and my work is getting greatly affected, causing my current large audiobook to get delayed again.
