Our children are so full of life and energy that we knew something was wrong when Scooters woke up a couple of weeks ago looking flushed, with no appetite and just wanted to lay quietly on the couch.
Sure enough, he had a fever all that day and even fell asleep during quiet time. I didn’t get any pictures of him laying around, but here are his brothers who each took a turn with it afterward.
As far as illnesses go, this one was thankfully mild and quick- just a fever and headache that made them very tired for a day. Ibuprofen and Gatorade helped them be comfortable as they looked oh, so sweet. And two of them actually fell asleep in the family room which never happens.
