It’s a school day. Your kid wakes up and doesn’t feel well. But how can this be? You have things to do. You have appointments. They have school work. And important testing or maybe not important testing but they are testing something. You’re sure of it because you attended 6 minutes of the PTA meeting. So they must go to school. So you turn to your child and say….
Oh I’m sure you’re fine. You’re just sleepy. Shake it off.
Okay, what hurts exactly? Let’s sprinkle some magical fairy health dust on it.
What? You no longer believe in magical fairy health dust? I know for a fact they make it over there at the Department of Health and Human Services and that the Surgeon General himself whipped up this particular batch.
You do seem a little droopy. Let me take your temperature. Where is the thermometer?
Found it under the US Weekly from June 2014!
Okay it says your temperature is 67 degrees. That doesn’t seem right. Is this in Celsius? How old is this thermometer anyway?
I don’t need a stupid thermometer. I gave birth to you so I can tell your temperature by feeling your head. Feels like 98.6!
Look your clothes for school are right here. Let’s see how you feel once you put them on. The feel of cotton can do wonders.
Let’s get some breakfast into you. Nothing perks you up like a bowl of cereal with no milk. Why won’t you put milk in your cereal? It’s so much better that way. Okay, eat your dry cereal.
Honey, pick your head up off the table.
You’re going to miss your playdate if you stay home!
Being healthy is just about having the right attitude.
This is the first day of the rest of your life!
Wow, that’s a lot of snot.
Here’s a packet of tissues.
Hustle hustle hustle! You don’t want to miss the bus.
Why are you lying on the couch?
Let me get these shoes on for you.
Wait, are you snoring?
I’m starting to think you’re actually sick.
Are you trying to tell me something?
Fine, I guess you’re staying home.
