So my daughter came home from school yesterday and immediately started vomiting and had diarrhea. She was fine by dinner and woke up this morning begging me to let her go to school.
I almost wish I had.
School policy is that they have to be free of malady for 24 hours, consecutive. I kept her home. My very active, high energy, attention whore 5 year old. Okay, that sounds bad, calling her an attention whore. It fits though, she still seems incapable of doing anything all by herself. She thinks she needs to bug anyone and everyone around because she won't play all by herself.
I love my kids, I really do, but when they're home sick because of school policy, and not really that sick, they drive me crazy by lunch time.
Oh yeah, the question: Anyone else's kids drive them crazy like this?

If she didn't get sick at school & was acting fine by morning, I would've risked it & sent her. Maybe it was a reaction to cafeteria food & not a bug. But to your ques., that's a big fat YES! My boys are 1 1/2 yrs apart & could've drove a preacher to cuss when they were younger. And you don't even wanna be around my dau after she's had ice cream! lol :p
