Monday, a day I usually stay home with the kids, my daughter was ill. She had a fever on Saturday and so was technically fever free for 24 hours. However, she was coughing and congested in the morning, and I didn’t want to send her to school only to be worn out and have a relapse as she did earlier this winter. We took it easy in the morning and then headed out for some errands. The last one was dropping off a car at the shop to get some repairs done. We were going to take the bus back from there, but she wanted to walk part of the way. After stopping for a roll at Panera and getting some tomato soup at the grocery store, we even walked the last part of the way home. I really hope that in keeping her home, I didn’t end up wearing her out even more than she would have been at school.
