My sensitive child
Im being put to sleep for a colonoscopy early tomorrow morning (UK time).I've got to drink 2 litres of the most hideous 'prep'Its just me and my almost 3yr old in the house and being curious about mummys drink he kept asking for some. I explained it's mummys medicine and it tastes disgusting. He dipped his finger in wanting proof. His little face scrunched up and he said 'oh mummy it IS disgusting' he then put his arms around me and said he was sad. Sad is exactly how I'm feeling about drinking it. It is exactly the word for it.Then a few minutes later while it was set down on the table he dipped his fingers in it again and put it to his tongue.. Repeating that it's disgusting and he felt sad.Now he keeps saying 'sorry mummy 'Obviously I'm keeping it in my hand now to prevent him from trying to join in the misery of this drink.But each day since my own 'awakening' I'm becoming more aware of my littlest man's sensitivity..his constantly saying sorry with nobody sure whyHim often asking each person in turn 'you ok mummy?' 'you ok *older brother* 'you ok daddy?'Lots of other things too.I'd love to hear from any other parents out there who have experience with sensitive kids.
