The Magic of Tylenol
Zach wakes up in the middle of the night every couple of weeks saying that his foot really hurts. He cries, he squirms, he can barely even walk on it when we go in to the bathroom. Then I typically will lay with him for a few minutes and when that doesn't seem to console him I offer him tylenol. Any flavor will work, but right now it's bubble gum. I give him the tylenol and immediately that stops his whimpering. And amazingly after about one minutes he has stopped squirming, he's breathing easier, and he falls back to sleep in the next few minutes. Now, I know that tylenol does not get into our system that fast, but isn't the placebo affect amazing!
