Jelly Beans

Jelly Beans are my life-line lately. Treatments have been going a little, well, rough the last couple weeks. With our beautiful weather and fun backyard, the last thing Ben wants to do is sit down and be strapped to a machine. So, we’ve had to improvise. Bring on the bribery.

Now, I am not above bribing my child. Not in the slightest. It gets things done.


Ben now gets 2 Jelly Beans when he puts on his vest and 3 when he’s done with the neb. He never hesitates to remind me of this fact and we’ve even incorporated counting into our game. He counts out exactly the right number (but has been known to pop one into his mouth before I can get to it) and lays them on his giraffe to eat slowly.

I feel like writing the Jelly Belly factory a thank you note. Just because we have to do treatments, doesn’t mean it needs to be painful.


  1. That is such a great idea. We are feeling the same pain here! Madeline has been throwing a fit lately for treatments.

  2. Love that you can get him to happily do his treatments! Jelly Beans are awesome!


I love hearing from you, thank you!
