Ree has a cold. I kept her home from school on Monday and Tuesday because she had a low-grade fever, and then last night she got a bloody nose that just wouldn’t stop (our girls always get bloody noses when they have colds) and today she woke up congested, feeling crappy, and still feverish. So school today is just not in the cards either...
Sister Ro was NOT digging the solo school experience at first. So now we’ve added a special treat just for her that has restored the zip to her skip. The brave scholar gets to have dinner at Pasta Pomodoro (her fave) with daddy tonight.
Ro is being such a good sister, bringing kleenex, blankets, etc. This morning she just wanted to be close to Ree, who was watching a movie, so she opened the recliners, propped them up with a footstool, and made a bed right near her sister. Little honey.
Alrighty, I’m off to take temperatures, refresh sippies of herbal tea, and snuggle before getting Ro ready for kindergarten.
PS: Do you keep your kids home from school at the first sign of a low-grade fever, or keep them home only if/when a full-blown illness shows up?
