Wow I'm sorry this snowballed into this. I was aggravated with him, I THOUGHT it was an energy drink, but to my understanding a couple of days later, turns out what I thought was an energy drink was actually an electrolyte and B vitamin (basically gatorade) additive that you can put in water bottles. He added some to a little water in a glass for her to try. She said "Now I have ENERGY!" and I assumed the worst and it freaked me out.
We never have energy drinks in the house, I think they taste nasty. But my husband occasionally brings those little energy shot things to work. (He's not a coffee drinker, except on Christmas.) So I sometimes see those in the cabinets in the kitchen. Thank you all for your support, I didn't mean for it to turn into this, and please know we will never give our babies energy drinks. Yuck. Now to read all 20 pages of replies. Yikes....
Yeah, so... just came upstairs to find my 6 y/o daughter drinking what I thought was strawberry Kool-Aid but she was making a big deal about it so I was suspicious. She was like "I'm just drinking Kool-Aid, mom." *BIG WINK AT DAD*, (and he returned the wink). I went for the cup and she was like "NOOOOOO!" As I smelled it, she goes "I have ENERGY!!" I asked him if he gave her a freakin' energy drink and he said "Just a little." IT IS SIX THIRTY AT NIGHT! She'll NEVER go to bed!! He's never had to get up with them/stay up with them though the night, (except the ONE time I had a bad stomach virus) and if I made him after pulling this, he'd be sleeping in his chair while she bounced off walls at 11:30pm, and my anxieties about that fact would not let me sleep anyway. Are you KIDDING? Really?? I mean it WAS just a TINY bit in her cup, but how much does it take to make a kid wired for sound?? Not much, I'm guessing. Argh.
