How can you tell if your child is too sick for school? So, I received a call from Bella’s school yesterday saying that she was running a temp of 102.2. They told me that someone had to pick her up from school right away. Well, she is my daughter and I wouldn’t want her at school if she is sick. So obviously Kas went to pick her up. Now, I know that there are things that you can’t go to school with like Norovirus, Flu, Vomiting , Diarrhea, fever,etc…This post is not about that….THIS POST IS ABOUT THE TRICK SICK…..you know, that cough early in the morning over and over…the “daddy I’m sick” whine. So you feel bad and let the kid stay home, give them medicine, and regret the decision within the hour……HOW CAN YOU BE SICK ACTING LIKE YOU ARE ACTING?…..GET OFF THE TOP OF THE REFRIGERATOR!!!!
What goes on is nothing short of all out chaos! My daughter took her medicine this time and felt better in 10 minutes. She is really sick…this time…..but, just understand, that after she found out that I wasn’t going to take her to school…something clicked!! I have no idea if the medicine made her crazy or what…she went from sick, to crazy, to cleaning her room without being asked, to crazy, to sick, to doing laundry, to being mean, to sleep. The girl just lost it. I know what to tomorrow brings…..”Daaaaaddddy I’m Siiiick”…..I’m going to go to her room, hold her in my arms, kiss her forehead, and hand her her school uniform….you are going to school little girl!!
How do your children get one over on you? By the way, don’t tell her I told you, but Kas told me that I was being duped! I guess that’s why it wasn’t “MOMMMMY I’m SIIICK!” Oh well!
