Distraction Tactics 101

It has been a challenge
(to say the least)
to convince Ezra to stay still long enough to have a breathing treatment.
I've tried sitting and holding him
*slinging* him (in a sling--not like, through the air =)
walking with him
sitting him in his bouncer
and so on.
It didn't work.
*But* I found something that did!
My little e-boy may have inherited my sad little lungs--but he also inherited
my love of art.
He can't get enough of the Van Gogh print I've hung in the living room and he
stays still *long enough* for his treatments. FK4ZD00Z

Praise God and Amen!

((That boy of mine may have bad lungs but he also has good taste =))

Leah would only stay still long enough if I stuck a boob in her mouth. I'll have to try some art next time!

Pamela said...

huzzah for good taste!

Melody said...

That's really cute : )

I wonder how he would do if he was laying on a play mat, like we got his Eboy cousin???? Eboy of the North LOVES to lay on his mat and bat things around.

slinging him - LOL!

next time maybe you can try "Irises" and there's always the timeless "Starry Night" yay for Vincent!

Glad you found something that works...I always used to put E down for naps in the bouncy seat, and do his treatments while he slept! He never fought me while sleeping :)
