People! Prepare yourself for Lazy Mom Tip awesomeness….
Let me begin at the beginning. (It’s a very good place to start.)
While my kids were in Wisconsin, my daughter had a cold. Her nose was so congested that she needed to take a pill to help dry it up.
Except I can never get her to swallow a pill!
But my brilliant mother-in-law, facing this dilemma on her own for a week, came up with the absolutely, tee-totally, bestest way to get your children to swallow a pill!
Her plan involved applesauce and trickery.
See? I told you she was brilliant.
She told my daughter that she was going to give her two spoonfuls of applesauce and that she was going to put the pill in one of the spoonfuls, but she wouldn’t know which one.
AND IT WORKED!
My daughter easily swallowed the pill.
No crying, no gagging, no frustration. Down it went.
Just today when my daughter needed to take one of the pills, she instructed me to give her two spoonfuls of applesauce, but not tell her which one the pill was in.
She turned her back to me while I hid the pill in the first spoonful, then down the hatch it went. She turned back around again while I prepared a second spoonful without a pill, and down the hatch it went!
My daughter absolutely insists that she can’t tell which spoonful holds the pill!
So thanks to my dear mother-in-law, you too can now teach your kids to swallow a pill!
