Our middle son is a hypochondriac - or should that be, just a humbug!

In twenty-four hours, this fit, healthy child with an equally healthy appetite has had:-

  • a cough

  • a headache

  • sore eyes

  • sore legs

  • a pain in the chest

  • a failed attempt to throw up!

I don't think he understands about "the boy who cried 'Wolf!'", though we do. Are we going to rush to the doctor? Probably not. Are we not giving him enough attention? Well, I'm pretty sure we pay all three boys plenty of attention.

So - watch this space. My cure for all ills is either an indigestion tablet, or a spoonful of Calpol - or an early night. He got the early night this time!
