My son came home from a weekend at PopPop's with a slight cough. Normally when he gets sick it comes on gradually and then the poor kid has the worst cold ever for like, 3 days.
He's in kindergarten so this is our first year in school and I'm not sure if I should send him with a cough. He's pretty good about covering his mouth but he wont be able to wash his hands all the time and they all share everything in the classroom.
However, I know tomorrow he's not going to be REALLY sick-that is, feel bad until like, Wednesday. If I keep him out of school bc of the cough, he'll probably end up missing a whole week. Thats A LOT of school to be missing in the first month.
Any advice? I dont want to be the jerk that sends her germy kid to school but I also dont want him to miss more school than necessary. And of course this is happening the ONE WEEK my husband has two day shifts and my grandmother wont watch him if he's sick :(. Ughhh.
