I have a confession: I HATE it when my kids are sick. Not for the usual reasons - like feeling badly that they feel badly and not because they are home when the plan was to go to school. Nope. I don’t like it because if it lasts more than a day or two, it is BORING, and when my children are bored the irritability goes through the roof and instead of a snuggly day at home, we all end up grouchy and unhappy.
Sick days are no fun. While the main activities will consist of drinking lots of water and getting plenty of rest, still try to get outside for a few minutes for fresh air and sunshine (or fresh air and rain!). To help pass the time, I found this article from the Washington Post helpful.
Let’s hope you won’t need it until next year!
