Tuck in time

This morning was rough---daylight savings time messed with the whole household. PalKid was not real happy about getting up, but she did. I brought her waffles in bed (real maple syrup, as always). Mrs. Pal packed most of her lunch the night before--I heated up the soup and put the thermos in the lunch bag.

So here's the deal. Grandson #2 picked up some kind of norovirus-like thing at daycare and by late afternoon was seriously engaged in projectile vomiting. My daughter and I picked him and his little 'bro up (his dad was in class) and brought them to her house. Since I am getting ready for a…

That's amazing! Little Isis snores too and I think it is adorable. I realize his future wife probably will find it less adorable, but I find it beautiful.

Wow that's ridiculously cute. She's gona be reading your past blog posts in a few years and kill you.

He may not -- upper respiratory anatomy changes a lot as kids grow.

However, if he does snore, it may not be so much "less adorable" as "life threatening." One reason my kids grew up without a grandfather was his sleep apnea.
