Anyone who knows our sweet Harrison knows that he's not one to ever turn down food...especially when it comes in the form of a snack. So two weeks ago when we started getting head shakes, screeching and continual "NOs" at the mention of breakfast, lunch and dinner, our minds immediately flashed back to mid-January when he got his first ear infection. Lucky for us, we already had a 2 month well-visit scheduled for Max, and we were able to drag Mr. H along with us to get a quick peek into those ears. It's never a good thing when the first words out of your pediatrician's mouth are "pretty awful." Ugh. We tried one antibiotic, hoping to avoid Augmentin, but when he developed fevers 2 days later, it was obvious that we had to change things up. Apparently Harrison's ears really like Augmentin. His bottom, however, does not.
Hello diaper rash. Hello tear-filled diaper changes. Hello heart-broken mama.
Hello Good-bye baths.
Yes, you heard me. Good-bye baths. This kid 1,000% flat out refuses to take a bath when he doesn't feel well. Throw in a very red/sore bottom and the matter just gets uglier and uglier. We've learned to choose our battles and resort to some pretty half-hearted wipe downs until our normally water-loving kiddo returns. This time around we made it through a good, solid week of stink accumulation, before this mama decided that it was time to get creative (translation: time to trick our kiddo into taking a bath.)
H hasn't had a good ol' fashion sink bath since his first birthday, so just imaging his excitement when I stripped him down and plopped him into his new "tub." No fears, that bottle scrubber got a bath of its own when all was said and done!
That there is a look of pure orneriness! I believe this was about 2 seconds before he discovered dumping water onto the floor. And about 5 seconds before I shot him the evil eye.
