Junior has the Croup

He's not really sick, we caught it really early. He barked a couple of times yesterday and had a low grade fever. The pediatrician thinks it wont get any worse. Today he's not even coughing. I'm taking him to the UBS and the Supermarket, hopefully somewhere along the way he'll take a nap.

FYI--Junior isn't really a Jr. He's actually named for both his grandfathers, it's a tradition on my Italian side to name the first born son after the grandfathers, and the second after the father--of course, if I didn't like the names I'd have come up with something else. Using this tradition one of my DH's cousins would have been named "Julius Caesar." Junior actually comes from an old Bill Cosby skit "Junior Barnes You Gunky," it's one of my husbands favorites. We don't actually call him Junior, we only use it when we're talking about him, strange I know. He also has a whole host of other nicknames that we do call him (including Bumbles--which completely offends my SIL from hell, the Oliver Twist thing, but "Bumbles" is actually short for "Bumble Bee"--don't ask--LOL.

Aren't you all glad I shared this with you--LOL.

Have a great day, happy reading.

Hope jr feels better soon!

We do LOTS of nicknames- all of my kids have at least 3 or 4 each. They know they're in trouble if their actual name is used!
