Say What? I Love You.

Oh candy corn.
I called him naughty. I explained that he HAD to take it. I actually scraped what I could off the couch and put it in his mouth again. This didn’t go over well. At all.
Hiram and I fought the rest of the morning. I was clearly being a crazy person and Hiram was clearly ticked.
That night medicine time was approaching and I was dreading it. How was I going to get him to take his medicine this time? I started by reasoning– explaining that I understood he didn’t like his medicine but he had to have it to get better. Telling him it was very important he took all of it. I also I bribed him. I promised him M&M’s when we were done.
And then, something miraculous happened. Hiram said this:
Hiram: I won’t spit it out.
Me: You won’t spit it out? That’s very good Hiram.
Hiram: I won’t spit it out. I love you.
Hiram didn’t spit it out. He looked me right in the eye while he swished his medicine around in his mouth, swallowed hard and asked for his M&M’s.
