Myeightkiddies Posted January 11, 2012 Share Posted January 11, 2012 Me: I'm <insert long pause as I gather strength to say another word> sick. Children: *ears perk up* *they look at one another briefly* Me: So, *snuffles and coughs* we won't do school *snuffles and forgets what I was saying* today. Children: *using all their might not to smile* Poor, Mommy! *hugs* We hope you feel better soon! *their faces about to break from not smiling* Me: Thank *hacks* you. Here, have a vitamin C. Children: Thank you, Mommy. *They skip off into the other room* I'm so glad that I made their day. Though I do expect my 11-year-old DD to be in here within the hour asking if she can read ahead in history or science. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
