Keeping Kids Home If They Are Sick!

I have been guided by do onto others as you would like them to do onto you. This obviously does not apply when someone has a sick child and have to still take them to school for whatever reason. I get it, there are some situations where parent(s) are unable to take off from work etc. but it is painful for others.

So we have been having a fairly great season and have had no instances of RJ getting sick. We tried to be good parents and made sure that we take the necessary precautions necessary fr the flu season. RJ has had his flu shot and we are cruising right along. Well… Full Stop!!! He comes home today after school and said he was really tired. We did his review of what he learned at school, prepared the Valentine’s Day goodie bags for his class, reviewed and studied his sight words and then he went to play.

He goes to karate and the bookstore and by the time he gets back home he is coughing, eyes watery, felt warm and wanted no part of his dinner. Well that was surprising but what really was shocking was he said he should have taken a nap. RJ has not taken a voluntary nap in his bed for at least a year. If he is in the car and tired he will fall asleep but not happening voluntarily.

He has just passed out after coughing and I can only imagine what the night will hold for me. I am being positive but prepared for a rough night. I am going to need coffee all day tomorrow just to survive.

Hoping for the Best!
