Weekly Photo Challenge: Reward

4 Mar

After battling for an hour to put one measly eye drop in the left eye … the one with pink eye …

After struggling to survive a tantrum before bed time when your tank was running on fumes …

After waiting until 1 a.m. for the Children’s 12-Hour Delsym to finally kick in …

After a not-so-good-night’s rest leading to a cranky morning …

After the last Eggo Waffle burned, which then led to a bowl of Chocolate Cheerios …

It finally happened …

Out of the blue …

Sunshine came out …

And so did the reward.

A happy kid gave me the thumbs up.


I love rewards.

    Besides chocolate, THAT is the best reward – for sure!! What a total cutie pie (tantrum and all). 🙂 Sorry about your battles and struggles though. 😦

      Yeah … Most definitely. At the end of the day you feel rewarded … Just need to remember that when I’m somewhere in the middle.

    Eye drops… Have your daughter close her eyes. Put the drop in the corner of her eye, by her nose, then have her open her eyes. No muss, no fuss. Drop done.

      That whole eye drop situation had me going bananas. I even tried those techniques with the eye ball and that still had her going all crazy. It was seven days and by day five she finally let her guard down. Don’t know what I would have done before that eye ball trick.

    Looks like she’s feeling mighty fine there!

      I think I sprouted at least five more gray hairs to get to that point, but at least she’s there now. I can always get some Nice-N-Easy if round two hits.
