Sick baby girl

My little Pi is home sick today. She complained of a headache last night and then woke up around 11 with a 101 degree fever. Poor little sweetpea! She was so upset when I told her she would have to stay home today. She has tried so hard to get perfect attendance every 9 weeks this year and so far she has missed it each time. The other two days she was absent this year were because she was throwing up and now today because of the fever. Allow me to rant for a moment on why I hate perfect attendance parties and awards... Because I am a responsible parent and keeping my sick kid home she will now not be able to participate in the ice cream party with the principal. BOO! I think that if a kid stays home because they are really sick then they should not be penalized. I realize that her absence is excused, but that is not going to change the fact that she is not going to get an award and ice cream party. BLAH! End rant.

She looks so sweet all cuddled up in my bed. She is hoping to be better for tomorrow so she can pass out and receive valentines at school. I am pretty sure I am going to keep her home though. I would hate to have her push too hard and then be done for the 3 day weekend ahead. I will probably drop off her valentines at school and leave her own valentine bag so that she can get all her treats on Tuesday. In the meantime this calls for soup, ice cream, water (her favorite beverage), movies in mommy and daddy's bed and lots of rest. Send get well vibes to our little Piper!

Poor Piper! I definitely remember those days of perfect attendance parties, and I too was often left disappointed.

Aw, I am sorry Piper is sick! And I do have to agree with you that it is unfair about the attendance parties, and awards. We never had that at our school- and if we had, I never would have been there...
