My daughter came down with STREP!!! Yay!
No no, you misunderstand... I wasn't happy she was sick. Although, between you and me, I don't mind a day from time to time where she lays around on the couch in full lethargy mode. No, it wasn't the illness that made me happy. It was the fact that I finally had the opportunity to try out one of my favorite ideas I've ever pinned!!
(no original source available... what does "uploaded by user" mean? Because that was the "source" given for the photo I had repinned. So many things to learn about Pinterest! If you know the original source please let me know so I can take this whole mini-rant out and just list it)
I loved the idea of writing on the bottle when she had taken her twice-daily doses of antibiotics. I mean, ten days is a looooong time. And after a few days they all start mixing together. And, of course, after one day the kid is bouncing around like they've never even heard of strep so it's though to keep up on the medicine sometimes.
So I was excited to try out this idea and it did NOT disappoint! No more trying to remember when I took her in to the doctor, when she started the antibiotics, if she had taken it that morning or not, counting on my fingers to see when she could stop taking it....it was all right there on the bottle! And making those "Xs" every day was very gratifying.
I also made a little line with the Sharpie where her dose was supposed to be. I was sick of squinting and turning that little cup until I found the 7.5ml line.
So... had you seen this already? Do you already do this? Do you think it's as clever as I do?
Viva la Pinterest!
