Yesterday I was trying to convince Sitara that she needed to eat some more chicken! She wouldn’t open her mouth for anything. So I begged, pouted, coaxed, threatened not to give her ‘sparkly juice’ (1/2 OJ 1/2 soda water) but nothing worked! Her mouth was sealed shut – so instead I said, ‘please – for mommy’ and gave her the biggest smile! and instantly her mouth opened! WOW!
