1) daughter-dear has been ill for a week. surprise surprise, now it's her brother's turn.
2) i'm a Bad Mother because i had completely forgotten to have his sheep costume ready for the nativity play dress rehearsal last thursday.
so i've quickly cut some extra holes in a pillow case, found a shower cap, ordered 3 bags of cotton wool with the grocery delivery tomorrow, got some spray glue - all set to have him in a sheep costume by sunday night. the nativity play will be performed monday - thursday.
he'll be ill.
but no one would notice.
whereas my daughter is always really poorly, my son is just tired at 5 instead of 8 o'clock. who would bother taking his temperature? and also i can keep that down until about midday with ibuprofen.
AND i've missed 4 days at work last week already because of daughter-dear
of course, i'll keep him at home.
will make the flppn sheep costume just in case
i like winter - but why o why does it have to bring us so many bugs?!
