The Syringe

When Shern was an infant, I was given a syringe to feed him medicine. I find it an efficient way because infant do not know how to take a spoon yet.

Now that Shern is a toddler, he loves medicine taking. Haha. Maybe because usually kids' medicine is sweet like candy syrup. But he only takes his medicine with the syringe. No spoon. Just syringe.
So now whenever Shern has a fever, he is especially happy when he sees the pink colour medicine bottle and the syringe.

He will cheerfully open his mouth while I syringe feed him. And most of the time, he asks for more! Blueks!
