So my Little Dude, age 3 and quite good at it, might I add, has been in a lot of trouble lately. His favorite thing is to tell me NO...at the top of his lungs. He's also said a few other things that get him in mega trouble. Out of desperation, I called my friend who now has 5 (including a set of twins so she knows it all, right?) and told her my predicament. She suggested vinegar.
Desperate to try anything I waited for my next opportunity for Little Dude to mouth off. Of course it wasn't a long wait. I can't remember what he said but I got a napkin and soaked it in vinegar. I then placed it on his tongue. He was not a happy camper but almost 48 hours passed before he said something inappropriate. Notice I didn't say 2 days passed before he got in trouble!
Anyway, he's gotten the vinegar treatment 3 or 4 times in the past 10 days. Today he screamed no at me and I promptly got the vinegar out. He fought me as I opened his mouth and inserted the vinegar soaked cloth. To my surprise, he stopped crying and asked for more vinegar. More? This child is a rare one, I tell you.
Now I'm off to buy hot sauce.
