I can’t do the sick kids all the time. For you parents who have kids who get sick a lot I pray for you. Couple of weeks ago son had pneumonia so he got a clean bill of health so on Tuesday of last week he started coughing thought it was a common cold so I drugged him up sent him to school…fast forward to Thursday I heard the coughing get bad so I gave him some honey that morning then sent him to school he seemed fine I mean other than the coughing he was playing around running up and down the stairs normal. Then around 11 am my friend calls me normally she is at work so I thought it was odd that she was calling me. I picked up she said, Kita the school is calling me saying Dman is sick can you come pick him up. What? Why didn’t the school call me or the hubs they have my cell, my house, hubs cell, and his job why call my friend. Odd, but I went on to the school parked and the nurses clinic is in the front of the school as I was walking up to the door this boy is jumping on the chair (sick my ass) I go in he says oh hey mom. Nurse says he threw up in the cafeteria after lunch. I decided to still send his butt to football practice that night but kept him home the next day cause I didn’t feel like the school calling me. Not once did he throw up while at home, on the football field, or during the next day.
Personally I think he is a faker. He only coughs or gets really loud when I mention school or football practice. He was fine Thursday and pushed his sister so I was like you got loads of energy lets go to practice then the coughing starts oh mom my head hurts, my throat hurts, I don’t think its a good idea to go to football practice.
On Friday he says
Dman: Mom I just love staying home with you we should look into homeschooling
Me: If you talk for the rest of the morning I will send you to school
Didn’t here a peep out of him til around 1pm which he probably is thinking school day over she not gonna send me to school this late.
*update* I wrote this post on Sunday as of today which is Thursday night early Friday morning he has now been diagnosed with strep throat……guess he wasn’t faking my bad.
