My boy has growing pains in his legs

And he can't get to sleep, which is why I'm up so dreadfully late.

I've given him some liquid painkiller (suitable for children), lots of huggs and he has my Peter Rabbit hot water bottle. But I'm at a loss as to know what to do.

No, my dear friend, you don't understand. I have an alcohol problem.

Sleep found my boy and later found me. Today he looks a little wan, but he'll be Ok. And by lunchtime he'll be eating like a horse, like the best of us.

To recap, this afternoon I bought some gel hand warmers, the type you re-genenerate in the microwave. These pads are lined with fleece, and I wrapped them around George's knees and ankles to keep his blood circulated nicely. Since then, his 'pains' have been reduced.

Glad he's doing better so you both could sleep.
My daughter gets out of her head with them.

It was a suggestion by a friend of ours and it really works. I feel sad for your daughter, though. Hope she gets out of those pains quickly.

have you taken him to the doctor? might be wise, to be sure of what you are dealing with is always good.

I was planning to take him on Monday, first thing. I am grateful for your asking babetoo, and will let you know.

This evening George is happily sitting watching TV. His pains seemed to have stopped since I attached those gel pads on his ankles and knees. But tonight I'll be watching him, making sure he's comfy. He'll come in and wake me up if he's in any pain, good boy that he is.
