Sick or not sick - that is the question.

One of the things I don't like about motherhood is being the judge of whether or not the kids are too sick to go to school. I don't need that kind of pressure. I'm a big meanie if I send them to school and then they end up in the sick room with a fever halfway through the day. But on the other hand, I'm a big pushover if I let them stay home and they are running around flying paper airplanes halfway through the day. I'll let you guess what today was. He's so not getting me tomorrow. After school we all headed to the mall as promised to Cooper to get the latest book in the Bone series that he has been reading non-stop for the last week. When we go to the mall and one of us is purchasing something everyone runs to grab their wallets 'just in case they see something they want to buy', which of course, is highly likely. Everyone ended up with new books and that made for a very quiet peaceful few minutes when we got home. So happy and thankful that
they all enjoy books.

I always feel the exact same way when my kids are sick. Thankfully they don't get sick too often.
