I Have a Sick Child.. I Think?...

Eon is home from school again today. He says his head hurts, and his throat and stomach. (These are his complaints every time he doesn't feel good, by the way... So I never know if I should believe him or not.) Sigh... The school nurse called on Monday, and I went and got him early. And, although he doesn't have a fever, his eyes are glassy. There *is* something going around.    I wouldn't care if he stayed home from school, except for two things: 1. The homework he comes home with the next day is RIDICULOUS.  And 2. He only has 3 and a half absences left. For the rest of the year. Ugh...  I keep telling him he only has so many absences left. But he doesn't care. What would they do? Fail him for the whole third grade because he has too many absences?....  I don't know.  He did good for the whole last couple months of last year. He didn't miss one day.   ~~Anyway~~  I made him some hot tea and biscuits (and he ate breakfast~ for his stomach "hurting", he sure is eating a lot. ?). And he's watching Kung Fu Panda, wearing his Snuggie.  :P

(I got the teddy bear clip art from that site.) Isn't it adorable? :D

Aww...hope he's ok now. Its really difficult to tell how sick a child is, if there's no fever, we have to trust our instincts. He could also be pressured by too many homework, I also think its ridiculous that they give that many...and most probably the parent does more work than the teacher in teaching the child the grade school subjects :p

Yes, that teddy bear drawing is so cute!

Thanks, Mimi. I think so, too (the parent does more work than the teacher..) He is feeling better now. But he is stuffed up. It doesn't seem to bother him. :)
