How is it that all three boys can get sick with different things within the first two weeks back to school? I can see one or maybe two, but all three? Cough, cough, hack, hack…
So that new cough elixir was tried. OK, only one boy tried it. He didn’t like it. I have to find one without the cayenne. The other teenager, my picky one, smelled it and told me I lost my mind.
Thank goodness for grandmas. It is incredibly difficult to miss school, but especially in the first weeks when you are trying to teach routines and procedures. There is so much pressure right now on teachers. Individually we are appreciated, but as a group not so much.
Back to sick kids–I think I need to finally take the third one to the doctor. He keeps telling me that he feels better, but I have heard him cough continuously for the last hour. That will only be two hours out of my day. 😦
