Sent my child to school vomiting. *EDIT

My daughter woke up and felt yucky, but I needed her to go to school today. Her eyes were droopy, runny nose, and whiny. As we walked up to the school, her feet were dragging. I know she felt bad, but I NEED her to go to school today so I can go to work. She stopped on the front lawn of the school and said she felt like throwing up. I told her to lean over and spit. She did, and got some spit in her long blond hair, that I didn't bother fixing this morning. As she was spitting, a woman walked by, having just dropped her child off. She started to cry, but I said loud enough for that lady to hear "It's just your sinuses running, you'll be ok" and we continued into the school. I know that the flu is going around, and even if it really is sinus troubles, she probably needs nothing more than a day of rest and a humidifier, but I HAVE THINGS TO DO. She has to go to school, sick or not.



I was the woman walking by, in my story. I know the father of the little girl who is sick, the girl is in my dd's first grade class. I almost turned right around and pulled my dd out of class, I surely don't need the flu in this home. But this scene was OUTRAGEOUS to me. I'm glad I'm not the only one who was appalled at this, judging by the comments.

Poor kid.  I understand needing to go to work, but sometimes work has to wait when a child is that sick.  Hope she's not running a fever and doesn't throw up at school.  Hope she's feeling better soon.
