I probably shouldn’t be on the computer. There are scads of things I should be doing. But I couldn’t resist sharing my little funny today.
My little guy is home with a fever. Again. My husband has pneumonia and went to work anyway. My oldest son had “the look” this morning. You know the one I mean. The one where their eyes announce “I’m getting sick. My head hurts. Are you speaking English?”
However, because he insisted on going, and didn’t have a temperature at the time of departure, I let him go to school anyway.
I’ll probably regret it. But no news from school is good news, right?
All of that isn’t funny.
But the next part is.
After a trip to the doctor’s office (the third in two weeks for him), I asked my little guy if he was hungry.
He wasn’t sure.
Did he feel like toast?
He didn’t know.
So I asked if I could have a bowl of cereal with him, thinking maybe I could coax him into eating something with me.
Nearly exasperated, he replied, “Mom, I’m not in charge of you. I’m like--six and you’re like--twenty. You can do whatever you want.”
God bless his sick little self!
I didn’t correct him. Would you??
Later, he said, “I could still go to school, Mom, even if I’m sick.”
“Oh?” I say.
“Yeah. They have a sick bay.”
Maybe I should have sent him! I’m sure their sick bay is better staffed than mine!
I hope the school doesn’t “beam” anybody home today. :P Did I spell beam right?? Is there more than one spelling for beam? I digress.
My advice for the day is: Lock your door so those nasty flu bugs don’t sneak into your house!
Stay healthy friends!!
P.S. My dear friend and neighbor just called to say she’s picking her 12-year-old son up from school. He threw up and is running a fever. Yikes!! Is it too much to ask that my boys leave that bug at school???
Though, I doubt the school has a washing machine in their sick bay! Lol!
