We have been truly lucky this year with minimum sicknesses finding their way into our home. So what happens when a kid does stay home sick, but they are bummed about missing school? You find the good!
That’s just what happened about mid-January around here. Rosie has a frequent occurrence of waking up with “a tummy ache” a “headache” and general “not feeling good” symptoms. I often send her to school anyways because I’m a mean mom that knows when she’s trying to fool me. Last month was different, though. She truly wasn’t feeling good, so we let her stay home to avoid spreading any illnesses around the school.
About 2 hours into our day she turns to me and says “I miss knowledge.” Confused by what she meant, and trying to hide a smile at just how silly it sounded, I asked her to clarify. The poor girl wanted to be at school, learning with her friends and growing smarter.
I pulled out our Sick Basket in hopes something in there would entertain her while I got some work done, but she was adamant that she still get some learning done. Thank goodness Target has everything we need, and I was prepared for just such a day. I gave her some Children’s Advil to reduce the low-grade fever and help her head stop hurting.
With her headache minimized we pulled out our awesome workbooks. Target has a great book and activity section next to the electronics. I love picking up the Big Workbook’s, and it definitely came in handy for this knowledge craving little girls. I also suggest picking up a good sick day movie, and Target has some great Cartwheel offers on 20th Century Fox videos right now as well!
Personally, I can’t think of a better sick day movie than The Peanuts Movie. With Charlie Brown, the eternal optimist, your day just can’t go wrong.
