Giving her apple juice from a cup didn’t work too well. The juice went in, but she could get it from the front of her mouth to the back and it all spilled out. So I got a medicine spoon and poured it into the back of her mouth. Worked great. She was thrilled, drank a whole bunch of juice (at her age, “a whole bunch” = tablespoon).
So I was giving her another drink that afternoon when Laura got home. She said “hi” to Maggie, who was delighted to see her. I offered Maggie some more apple juice (wanting to show off my new technique) and she went *WHACK* on the spoon. Nope, no need for apple juice when Momma’s around.
