I thought it would take longer than this. Who knew that it would take less than two weeks of Kindergarten for Evan to fall prey to the plague but, alas, it is true. He seemed fine when he went to bed last night but he was up all. night. long. Coughing, crying, whining…..GAH! This morning he made it half way down one flight of stairs before he sat down and announced “I do NOT want to go to school today. I am sick and I feel awful.” I, being the mean mommy I am, was leaning towards the “suck it up, buttercup” answer but Dewey convinced me to have a bit of sympathy for the poor little guy. So, he stayed home. It’s a good thing too because he coughed all day long. So much so that he now has abdominal muscle pain from all the coughing. I do NOT see a full nights sleep in my future. Ugh.
At work, I’ve always preferred people who stay home instead of those that come to work sick and spread it around. I used to be that person but now I think that life is too short & rest really does help you get better faster.
