We started our advent calendar on December 1st and the kids were so excited to wake up every morning to a piece of chocolate and countdown the days until December 25.
We stayed on track for 4 days…then Little Man started a round of antibiotics.
You know the white, chalky, disgusting antibiotics that Pediatricians love to give strong-willed 2 year olds??
So we chased him around the kitchen island with the medicine dropper in one hand…and a piece of chocolate in the other…and he washed the drugs down with a piece of chocolate.
And Sweet P got her chocolate too because it wouldn’t be fair for ‘him to get a piece and not me!’
A mom has to do what a mom has to do.
And now 9 days before Christmas…and both of my children’s advent calendars are empty.
Next year I will do better.
We will work on patience. And pray no one gets sick the first week of Christmas.
Happy week before Christmas, friends! Are you ready for Santa??
