The "Sick" Day

Wednesday I picked Pippi up from school, with a stomach flu. The school nurse suggested that I not bring her to school again until Friday even if she seemed better Thursday morning.

Pippi, with her hearty immune system was better by 3:00 p.m. Wednesday. But who am I to ignore a suggestion from the school nurse? We had a great day doing homework, practicing piano, cooking, and we even took a trip to a park.

I'm glad the "sick day" was so short lived! Looks like a fun day!

It sounds like Pippi's Mom knows how to make a sick day fun. What a beautiful kite!

I loved those not-so-sick days with my Mom, so I never rush my kids back to school after illness so I can have those days with them - I consider those days to be mental health days :)

That's exactly how I like to spend sick days too. I also like to fish on sick days and go to the waterslide.

Hurray for sick days! I wish I could have joined you in the park.

Wow, I wish I could make such a speedy stomach flu recovery! I love what Melissa said - mental health days!
