Crap! My daughter just sent a text saying...

Posted by   + Show Post
Se doesn't feel good!! Ahhhhh she can't be sick tomorrow is her marching bands last parade at Disneyland!!! Anyone have ideas in what we can do tonight to get her feeling better? Non drowsy cold meds? She had parade practice tonight until 5 and has to be at school at 7 tomorrow.
Oh and staying home is not an option you don't miss a parade unless you are in the hospital.




I swear the child is a glutton for punishment at 430 I got a text that said " band practice got done early I'm going to catch the last hour of rehearsal for the musical so I can learn the dance today" at least it's a long weekend maybe she will rest then.

My daughter is the same way. She is very self driven she just found out the ranks 36th out of 527 9th graders I am amazed with her.

Quoting Jessy76:

 


We have 17yr old twins that are exactly the same way. 1 of them broke her hand playing goalie during the in-door soccer season and was so broken hearted she couldn't play but that didn't stop her from going to every single practice and game to support her team. Neither of the girls misses a day of school they are so driven to maintain their GPA's. I wish I would have been more like that in HS. They make us very proud.


Quoting LCWAmommy:

She seriously would have to be dying to miss it lol I have to fight with her to stay home from school when she's sick. She hates getting behind


Quoting Jessy76:


 



Good luck and I hope she feels better. Marching at Disney would be cool it would be a bummer for her to miss that experience.



Quoting LCWAmommy:

Thanks she's going to find her grandma (who works in the cafeteria and get some orange juice) if she didnt have a Spanish and science test and practice tonight I would have her come home. At least practice is early and not 5-8 like it was in the summer and fall.



Quoting Jessy76:



Mucinex from behind the pharmacy counter the strong stuff (not the stuff on the shelf out front) will knock it out so she can march. Lot and lots of fluids and as much sleep as she can get. Ocean nasal spray helps as well. Helps break up the yucky stuff without drying out the nasal cavity
