It's unlikely that any of them were in danger a of Flinstone overdose. But I really wasn't in the mood to entertain this conversation every. friggin'. morning. of my life. PLUS, the pediatrician has each of them on prescription vitamins with different doses of fluoride so I can't just grab one bottle and dole them out. Four separate kids = four separate vitamin bottles. Grrrrr.
So, I trotted over to my local drugstore and picked up these nifty little pill boxes. Each one is labeled with an initial. Each day holds one vitamin with plenty of room to spare in the event of an illness requiring antibiotics or some such thing.
