…Sorry. Up half the night with a coughing kid.

My youngest apparently has inherited the allergies lurking in his mother’s side of the family, which are even worse than the allergies lurking in my side of the family. I don’t want to put him on the take-the-magic-pill-FOREVER regimen that I’m currently on*, but that means the odd sleepless night.  So I’m kind of bleary-eyed right now.

*God, I love technological progress. The day that they handed me a 24 hour allergy pill that dissolved on my tongue and worked within minutes was the day that I realized that, yes, I had managed to make it all the way to the future. Fewer rockets than I’d like, but the toys are better.

    My dad used to make this cough syrup that was warm water, honey, lemon, and whiskey.

    Yeah, it let us sleep at night (formula from the pediatrician.)

    If I may ask, what magic pill would that be? Asking for a friend… And myself… And my wife…

    Put 3 or 4 drops of Eucalyptus essential oil in a teaspoon of olive oil and massage it on the bottom of your son’s feet. My Grandson puts socks on, but my Granddaughter does not, and it works on both of them. No coughing all night long.
    I wish I knew this when my Daughter coughed all night long because of Asthma.
    It really works.
