In addition to the disruptive fun of family visits during the holiday weekend, we have been dealing with my son getting a cold. His very difficult nighttime routine a few days ago was a warning sign. Late nights and days spent holding him on the couch seem to have turned the corner, though he is not going to school tomorrow. The fever seems to have broken, but the tummy has some ground to catch up. Two days of no solid food have also taken their toll. Hope he bounces back all the way tomorrow. Today, he ate four crackers, and the jury is out about whether or not they will make it all the way through.
