We really thought we had him this time. Exhausting day of running around Legoland, back to the hotel for sunset swimming, wandering the hotel grounds, playing in the arcade and the playground, plus a nightcap of Nightime Cold and Cough and Melatonin. Same bedtime, same routine as home. He dropped right off to sleep with no fuss.
Then the cough medicine wore off and one coughing fit later, we were all up for three hours while he chatted away.
For a kid with communication issues he can sure talk a lot and say nothing. Oh no! a politician in the making?!
