Let Sleeping Dogs and Children....

*Napping at 2:00 in the afternoon because...

At 4:00 a.m. the above sleeping-sweetie and his 2 year old brother tried to throw a party. None of the other invitees, including me, were happy.

Little brother is so tired this afternoon because of last night's soiree that he's uncertain which way is down.

Because of their metabolic disorder I can't allow either of the night revelers to take an extra long nap. I have to wake them to make sure they eat on time.

When my boys can't sleep, and want to drink and drink and drink at night, and are full of restless energy it usually means they are coming down with a regular, everyday toddler illness; which is stressing their already fragile metabolic system.

We have to work to keep them from developing life-threatening hypoglycemia- thus no late mornings or long naps. So at our house, sleeping dogs may lie but children have to wake up and eat cookies.

I think I'll join them...

*I've had some questions recently about what our sons' illness means on a day to day basis. So I thought I'd try to occasionally post some glimpses of normal daily life with my children's version of FODs.

Oh those poor sweeties. I hope they didn't get sick.

I have to smile. If your child has to have metabolic issues at least there is this benefit: early warning for illness. Sure enough my 2 yo woke up this morning with a fever.

He's doing just fine- he's a warm snuggle-bunny right now:)
