Smuggler’s Blues

Ok, well, where do you keep your kids’ medicine?

My three year old hates, hates, hates his ear drops.  And, really, who can blame him?  Just thinking about that feeling of water dripping into your ear .... [shudder].  Anyway, I do what I can to make the experience slightly less ucky.  Which, recently, has taken the form of warming the drops to body temperature by carrying them close to my skin for about an hour or so before giving them to him.  It’s a pretty genius idea I got from our wonderful nurse practitioner.  And it’s been working really well.

But, it was slightly awkward, this morning, when I forgot about them.  And the little medicine bottle fell out of my bra in the locker room at the gym.
