I need some tips from some experienced mothers. How do you get your babies to take their medicine? Yesterday, my baby was diagnosed with his first ear infections, one in each ear :'(. In the past, giving him medicine hasn’t been a problem and he would drink it right down. But, he is determined this thick, sticky white antibiotic is the last thing he is going to swallow. I’ve tried rationalizing and talking it through with him, telling him it will make him feel better. Apparently, feverish five-month olds are not the most rational creatures on the planet….
In summer it is so hard to choose which fresh fruit to use. I just want to use it all, strawberries, peaches, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, plum, and apricots. However, the blackberry and lemon flavors in this cake are exceptionally bright way of celebrating summer. (Someday, just wait for a cake that uses all of the abundance of summer’s harvest. It may turn out brilliant!)
