Camden on the other hand has been an awful sleeper the last few weeks. On top of not sleeping I noticed he was snoring really loud, choking on his own saliva, producing fierce breath, and all together more cranky. I accounted the crankiness to not sleeping, the choking to being a drama queen, the bad breath to him being a boy, and the snoring...got me thinking. So one night while I was fighting him into his pajamas, he yelled at me and I saw the size of his tonsils. HOLY COW, it's a wonder the poor kid was even breathing. Those suckers were huge.
Luckily we had a follow up appointment with the ENT for his ear tubes that we were able to bump up and get him seen. His tonsils were indeed enlarged and infected. So here goes yet another round of antibiotics to try and kill this one.So in an attempt to mask the crankiness and playful abuse on his younger brother, we are trying hard to keep him occupied with exciting things throughout the day.
I'm learning to think like a little boy and use my imagination to make awesome sound effects. Before lunch we played dinosaurs and locked them in a cage while Camden took his nap. After he woke up I had all his cars set up in the middle of the floor. When he walked down the stairs and saw this creation his eyes lit up like it was Christmas morning.
Oh to be a kid again.
