home sick

Kaitlyn convinced me this morning that she is too sick to go to school. What got me was when she agreed to stay home and not watch television and get back into bed. Ok, it’s been two hours and she’s now on the couch watching “Hong Kong Fooey.” She knew I’d fold.

I had a horrible cold last week (it’s still lingering but at least now I can pretty much breathe) so if she feels like I did, I know she’s miserable. But she doesn’t look miserable. She looks suspiciously like a little girl who used the sniffles to not have to go to school when she didn’t want to.

I don’t want to say I hope she’s sick. But I hope she’s sick. And sick or not, tomorrow she’s getting some medicine and a ride to school.
