This here is a pic of Munckin # 2 at the dinner table last week!
Yes folks, he's actually sleeping AND snoring at the dinner table. It seems simple enough, he's a kid and he's probably tired. What you can't see is the fact that literally SECONDS before this pic, he was up and alert and eating. This isn't the first time this happened.

We get a kick outta making fun of this and even crack jokes that he's a little narcoleptic so I ran it by his doctor earlier this week when he did his check up and duh duh duh to me, apparently kids aren't supposed to be snoring so this IS a problem.
I was immediately given a referral to an ENT and his appt's booked for June. This is something that can actually progress and lead to serious narcolepsy or other serious problems as an adult and of course I wouldn't be ok with my poor lil munchkin having to go through that so we're gonna nip it in the bud right away.
The doc was also concerned that if he continues snoring and start gasping for air while sleeping/snoring, eventually this will affect his lungs and he'll start pulling blood into his lungs. This can also cause heart problems for him. GEESH!! I had no idea a little snoring could be so harmful for kids!!
I'm just glad that I had the sense to bring it up at his appt. Moral of the story, pay attention to these simple little things that might seem odd or funny and not too serious because they can lead to serious issues as your lil ones grow.
Happy Hump Day everyone!!
