 and you give them medicine, do your other LO's petend their sick just so they can have medicine too? My youngest dd has an ear ache and the other 2 claim that their sick so they can get the med. lol.

no, they don't.  my dd is happy to get them though (even though she rarely gets them).  she is currently on meds for an ear infection and she would drink the whole bottle in one sitting if we let her.  she loves that stuff.  my son isn't so crazy about meds.

Yes. While DD doesn't pretend she's sick she will tell me she needs it too.

Lol My dd sometimes fakes ailments to *try* and get tylenol. Damn companies make the meds taste too good now. Meds tasted like acid when I was a kid!! Lol

No, but dd2 is only 13 months old.

Sometimes my oldest will ask for more meds because she says it tastes good. I always explain to her medicine is not candy and its not to be taken without permission.

My 2 year old dd is always trying to be allowed to take her sister's medicine. Especially when it's "the pink kind!" She gets so upset when we tell her no. With tears in her eyes and a wobbly voice she'll tell me, "But I'm coughing!"

 My kids freak out too. They like it that much that they want to take it no matter what lol.

A dose of robitussin would cure that! Lol
Anything ending in Tussin will clear a kid out of a room!
