One Day, Two Naps

Our ill little boy dozing during his second nap of the day

It's been over two years since Ronan last took two naps in one day, but this afternoon he broke that streak after we returned from a visit to the doctor's office. Ronan is sick again - this time it's a not-so-fun cocktail of conjunctivitis, ear infection, nasty cold, and mid-grade fever. He's got a couple weeks worth of amoxicillin ahead of him to clear up the bugs.

I've never seen Ronan walk himself upstairs, pull his duvet up to his shoulders, and fall asleep without so much as a word of encouragement, but that is precisely what he did as soon as we walked through the front door this afternoon. Hopefully with the rest and a little medicine he'll be back to his normal napless self by the end of the weekend!

Poor little guy. Heal up quickly - give him a big warm hug from Nana.

18 hours (and three doses of antibiotics) later Ronan is a completely different kid. He still has stuff flowing from his nose but he's back to his rambunctious self! Thanks for the well wishes!
