We just dropped Monkey off for school. I commented last week that Mondays are generally a little tough because he, quite frankly, doesn’t want to go back to school. He would much prefer to stay home in his PJs with his dogs and…I can’t argue with him. I’d rather do the same. BUT, we joyfully head off to school each Monday with a grumbling, unconvinced Monkey in tow.
This morning we had the added fun of a nasty winter cold. He has a cough and a runny nose but no fever. He doesn’t feel great but he doesn’t meet the school’s guidelines for staying home either which are fever, vomiting or diarrhea…so. Off to school he went. I did mention to the teacher that conjunctivitis is apparently making the rounds since Monkey is prone to it and to please watch him for any symptoms but I don’t think that’s an issue…and trust me when I say that he was so upset about going to school I would have jumped at a chance to take him straight home.
We eventually left him and I made Duhdee sit in the car out in front of the school for 15 minutes. Another mom who had been in the room when we left came out and reported that Monkey was fine, he’d gone to sit on the couch with a blanket. Uh, have you met our hyperactive Monkey? That is not a good sign! After she left I ran in to the school office and asked them to call the classroom to check on him. The assistant who answered said he was fine and was playing in the sand table ((Oh, that’s going to go well with a runny nose!!!)) so I could do nothing more but leave.
Now, I’m at work and still worrying about my guy. He’s fine. I know they wouldn’t have kept him if they thought he wasn’t but…my Mommy guilt doesn’t seem to be accepting this today. *Sigh*
