Practice what you Preach

We've really been stressing sharing with the boys recently and they're getting pretty good at it. Callum will carry snacks in for both of them and give one to Kieran and Kieran will sometime even share his pacifier, which is a huge deal for Kieran.

We were at a fast food restaurant recently (a treat for the kids a couple of times a month and a night off from cooking and cleaning up for me) and the kids were happily eating fish & chips and chicken nuggets when I decided that I'd have a chocolate milkshake, of course they both asked for a taste. Callum took a sip, pulled a face and didn't ask for any more. Kieran took a sip, got a big grin on his face and immediately asked for more, a couple more sips and then I wanted my milkshake back! Kieran look disgruntled and very clearly said "share". I didn't expect him to turn the sharing lesson back on me.

Kieran has his sedated MRI and neurosurgeon consult tomorrow. It'll be a long day but I'll be glad to have another thing knocked of our list. His pediatrician said that she'd be very very surprised if anything was wrong so I'm not stressing about it too much.

That's hilarious! I can't blame Kieran for wanting more. Sorry tomorrow will be so long, but it always is good to narrow that medical to-do list down, isn't it? Looking forward to hearing the results.

My it sounds like there will soon be a round of shakes when you do elect to go out to eat. How cute the whole share thing is lol.

I hope that your long day tomorrow passes more quickly than you anticipate.
