Extra Extra . . . Read All About it . . . . Pickles to the Rescue!

So I'm happy to report that Livi is feeling much better this morning as well. We haven't been brave enough to take her off the cocktail (Motrin/Tylenol) but her spirits are better today.
So in my effort to get her to eat ANYTHING, I went all out and held her in front of the kitchen cabinet and said you can have anything, but nothing caught her eye. So then I took her to the fridge and granted her the same privilege. . . and to my surprise, guess what she picked . . . yup, she went straight for the pickles. So I'm thinking is this a good idea. I mean she hasn't eaten anything in a few days, is vinegar the way to go. Then it occurred to me, this could be the ticket to make her thirsty enough to want to keep drinking. So pickles it is!

So after a few pickles she decided she wanted to look through the cabinet again. This time she insisted that she wanted a pediasure. Again, I ponder is pickles and pediasure really a good combination. . . . sure, why the heck not. What could be better than pediasure in a time like this. So here she is enjoying her winning combination.
I'll let you know how this turns out. . .


  1. Well I have to say I got a good laugh out of this one. Now I know what to get her for her birthday. just a kidding. Livi with pickles I will have to tease her about that one when she gets older. You are a great 2 year old.....
