This morning I woke up at 6:30 to get my kids up for school. It’s a normal thing – I get up, get some coffee going, wake my 6 year old twins, and we are out the door by 7:15. Only this morning was different.  I woke up and my son was sleeping next to me. While this is a common occurrence his fever was not. His cheeks were flushed, body warm, and breathing was a little crackly. So I grabbed some Children’s Advil, gave him some and let him go back to sleep while I got my daughter ready.

He woke up again around 11am and I could tell he was feeling better – fever down, less lethargic, and even asked for something to eat (he NEVER does that when he is sick). It’s noon now and he’s sitting in my bed watching his iPad and giggling at the cartoon on the screen. If I hadn’t had Children’s Advil on hand it would have been a rough morning!
