There is no worse feeling than when the school nurse seeks you out in the middle of the day. Especially during the lunch/recess time. It means one of two things. Your child is injured, or sick.
I never get so lucky as to draw the injured cards. Seems my poor little gal hasn't been feeling so hot today, and went to see the nurse cuz she felt sick during lunch. So the nurse kept her in her office to eat, sent her out for some fresh air. And she vomited all over the blacktop. Then came in and vomited in the nurses office.
So the poor thing who has not missed one day of school all year long, got sent home for the first time in her school existence and is lying on the couch watching a movie.
And I have 2 glorious hours off today.
