My son has this thing with croup. For some reason, he seems to get it often. What's croup, you ask? It's an upper respiratory infection that makes him sound like a hoarse, barking sea lion. No exaggeration there - my kid sounds like a sea lion. I almost wanna throw fish at him.
But some might consider that bad parenting.
It's much worse at night. He gets terribly congested and has trouble breathing. So my hubby and I get to stay up with him to make sure he's okay.
And throw fish at him.
My son, the sea lion.
