this is the trick the creative nurse in the er whipped up for us to help max drink his fluids. it works best with blue gatorade or some other fun color. she was even nice enough to make one for alex. i totally thought she was the best thing since sliced bread until we were leaving. and she handed both alex and max each a pack of graham crackers. um, tonsils? just out? when she realized graham crackers didn’t count as clear liquids, she ripped them out of the boys’ hands and sent us on our way. the boys sobbed and screamed all the way to the car … and then some.
at least the rocket fuel idea is still working!
