Sick Kid

Do you have a kid who is more needy than the others? It feels like that one takes more out of you? sicker, whinier, and in general harder to manage.

I have one of those, and one of the hardest thing to determine; is he truly sick and can’t go to school, or is he just faking it?
I have a general philosophy, if you have no fever, and does not show visible signs of dying, then you must go to school. This guy has always find ways to get around that rule 🙂 He can make himself show visible signs of dying. I will allow him to sit out school, and I am told as soon as I leave home to head out to work, he’s fine, up and watching television. Of course, when I call home, he’s groaning and whining.

I will have him for another 4 years before he’s gone off to college, until then, we will keep playing the game of sick or no no sick.

How about yours?

  1. My little girl has been sick all weekend, and today she had the day off school. She probably could have gone it but i know her she would have called me soon after I dropped her off. But the performance she put on this morning was amazing OSCAR winning. She shook her whole body ” my head is going to explode the whole world is spinning” whilst circling her body . I was trying my best not to laugh. As soon as i had dropped her brother at school, oh miraculous recovery. She could walk talk and laugh. So tomorrow she is most definitely going to school, you are not alone with the fake sickness!
