Weeks ago my three year old kept pointing to the lemon juice concentrate bottle in the fridge. It's a tall green bottle, so I thought he was mistaking it for pop. After trying to explain to him that it was for cooking and not for drinking, he had a meltdown, and I let him learn by experience. He took TWO sips before giving it up.
So I figured, good, he won't try that again.
He just asked his dad for some. My hubby gave him some and let me know so I could watch. His lips just pursed ever so slightly. I asked him, "Are you drinking that?"
He nodded, yes.
Then after a SECOND sip, he came to me with the cup and said, "Thi no goo" (This is not good.)
I said, "Okay, go put it in the sink then." Which he did.
I hope some of the other lessons of life don't take two tries for him to learn. Lemon juice is one thing....
