Convincing Sophie to stay home from school is a challenge. She is an usual kid, who LOVES school and combined with her desire to never miss anything, it makes staying home from school a tough sell. She cries and insists that she is fine and cries some more and lists everything that she will miss that day at school, "But I'm going to miss my math test and notetaking for our Colonial project!" Helping her to understand that she is sick and needs to stay home is the mental equivalent to wrangling and rope tying a baby calf.
But once she settles in, she always comes to me with hugs and kisses, whispering those magic words that every woman loves to hear..
"You were right."
I like to make it fun and cozy with lots to draw and Italian Ices to eat and pillows to lounge on, and just surrender to the pace of the day.
We made some smoothies
and a little TV face while eating lunch in the living room
plus love notes!!!!
Happy Sick Day (We will all be ready to go back to normal tomorrow)
