See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Going to vent here so i don't vent AT her and lose a friend.
One of my friends, we'll call her A, watched my boys tonight so hubs and i could go on a double date to a movie and dinner with another couple we know. Both boys were fine when we dropped them off, not so much as a sniffle. However a kid in my older boys class came in yesterday with a horrible cold, coughing and sneezing all over the place and on the other kids, and my son has a weak immune system.
It turned out the movie we went to see was sold out so instead we all went to have a snack and get some quick birthday shopping done. We were back to pick up the boys in less than 2 hours.
I walk in and my older son is slumped on her couch, not moving, eyes fogged out and shaking a bit. She starts telling me how he was soooo well behaved and didn't give her any trouble but that he didn't want to eat any dinner. She had no idea anything was wrong. By the time i got him home his temp was almost 104 and he was shaking so bad we had to carry him in.
I just find it so frustratingly absurd that she didn't realize he'd come down sick. She's a mother of a little one the same age, you'd think she'd recognize the signs of a sudden illness in a little kid. I've never been so happy to not be able to get into a movie i'd wanted to see. If we'd gone to the movie my son would have ended up in the hospital with her not recognizing and dosing him for the fever before it got too high.
