What a week! The kids were both sick last weekend and we missed school on Monday because of a long-lasting fever. Tuesday and Wednesday were fairly uneventful...as uneventful as life can be trying to teach 31 kids.
Then Cole got sick again, this time complete with vomiting. Lots of vomiting. I've never seen a more pathetic little boy in my life. He literally didn't move from the recliner the entire day...even requesting a Pull-Up as it hurt to stand. :( I stayed with him through the morning, then hubby took off at noon to keep him for the afternoon while I went to school.
In hindsight, I probably should have just taken the entire day off. My room was a mess. The kids were obnoxious. I did more picking up/sorting/organizing/yelling than actual teaching.
But today? Today is a bummer. The teacher across the hall and I had decided a few weeks ago to take personal days today to spend the day Christmas shopping. (Shh. Don't tell.)
We were both giddy with anticipation of a kid-free, work-free, stress-free day of Starbucks, shopping, lunch out, and more shopping. Just the two of us.
Instead? I am home, nursing my little guy back to health. Of course, I am happy to be here to take care of him. And am so glad he is starting to feel better. But it isn't exactly the day I had in mind.
Instead of Starbucks peppermint mocha, I am sipping on Folgers. Instead of lunch out, I will be having leftover stir-fry. Instead of shopping with the BFF, it's just me and my laptop and overstock.com.
Let's just hope everyone stays healthy next week. I need that shopping day. And that Starbucks. And that kid-free, work-free day.
Anyone wanna sub for me?
Edited to add: Super-sweet hubby read this post this morning, took pity upon me, and brought lunch to us at noon! Yay!
