I should have known three days ago. I told Canaan no about something (I forget what) and it made him so upset that he ran upstairs to cry. I went up to check on him literally less than 5 minutes later and found this:
Two days ago the kids and I were doing some schoolwork in the early evening and I couldn't hear Canaan. I called him . . . and then again, more loudly. No response isn't typical, so I went to check on him and found him like 4 feet from me on the couch like this:
Yesterday I put him down for a nap, just like every day. 9 days out of 10 now he doesn't nap at all but plays with his toys in his room and has "quiet time". It's not always quiet. Anyway, yesterday I was reading him a book and he just flat-out fell asleep mid story. Not the norm. When I got him up from his nap he was burning up. :-(
Caris took pity and made him a card.
He really liked it.
Today's been more of the same. Fever, tired, but otherwise nothing major. He even plays when the Motrin kicks in and the fever goes down. I'm wondering if it's Roseola. I guess we'll know in a couple days!
