Last week my little guy was sick, probably more sick than he has been in the 4 years of his life. He didn’t want something to eat every 5 minutes, play on my phone or beat up his  big brother – that is how I knew he truly wasn’t feeling his best, well that and the fact that his temperature jumped back and forth from 102°-104°. This went on for six days and was not fun for any of us.

Thankfully we received a few fun titles from Raincoast Books during this time and although they didn’t take the fever away or any of the pain he was feeling, they still made for some great distraction and it was good for mommy to see him crack a smile.
