Until now, I never...
Stayed Home with my Sick Daughter


I think it’s amazing that this is the first time ever that Nadine has missed school for being sick.  Not even in pre-school did she miss a day.  So when she woke up with a fever and I said she needed to stay home, she really struggled with it.  She got up, got dressed, and rode to school with Miles and me, but her forehead was hot, and we biked back home together.

I took her temperature and she had a fever of 102, so she got back in bed with a book.  But by 2pm she was full of energy and the fever was gone.  She biked back to school with me to get Miles, played on the playground for a while, and was fine.  Amazing.  She went back to school the next day, no problem.
