Just felt like touching base. I had intended to write something yesterday but was called away to pick up my sick little man from school. Apparently he told the teacher he had a sore throat and she "allowed him to get water whenever he needed". She and the teacher aide "felt his head and arms" which did not feel warm, so she encouraged him to make it until lunch. He the told her he "didn't think he was going to make it" and requested to go to the nurse. He was told "no." By the time I was called, he had thrown up on himself in class, again near the door (in class) once on the hallway floor and once in a trash can in the hall on the way to the nurse. I had two concerns. Why was he not allowed to go to the nurse? We've worked that out. My other concern is that he was escorted to the nurse by another 6 year old who was carrying the trash can. I understand that they don't want kids in the hall alone and appreciate the other child escorting him, But...
Would you want your 6 year old holding a trash can for another child? I've been told the trash can is supposed to be set on the floor if the sick child needs it, but they're 6. I think once Boog started getting sick that maybe one of the adults should have taken 2 minutes to walk him to the nurse.
Okay, it's over and I'm moving on.
I got a new clothes dryer about a month ago and am still amazed that it gets the clothes dry in one cycle. The old one (which stopped working 2 weeks after the 1 year warranty expired) would only work on the delicate cycle and I would have to run it 3 times before the clothes were dry. I managed this for 5 months and wonder how long it will be before my mind is re-trained and realizes dry clothes the first time around is NORMAL. You can bet we got the extended service plan on this one.
So last night was pretty rough with my sick little boy. He seems a little better this morning, he hasn't thrown up since 5:30. I just need to find something he will eat. I think I'll see if he'll eat some jello.
Forgive my sleep deprived ramble, just needed to get some thoughts out of my head.
