...than sick kids during holidays. How cruel is it that my five year old son is suffering a rotten, sinusy head cold a mere three days before Christmas? The poor kid has his nose running off his face. It's so bad that he's willingly blowing his nose, something we normally badger him to do when he starts snuffling. His breath his horrid.
I'm wondering whether he'll be able to handle his last half day of school before Christmas break or if I'll have to keep him at home. Selfish critter that I am, I am tempted to send him to school so I can handle a few last-minute tasks.
Even worse is that I can see Precious Daughter is right behind him. She's starting out with the same look in the eye that he had a few days ago, and her breath is bad enough to peel paint.
On the bright side, bedtime on the 24th might be pretty easy.
