So my son woke up hacking away, sore throat , major sinus headache and a bit of wheezing. He was in the hospital a few weeks ago for rapid heart rate & has his follow app on Monday.
Anyway, yes I kept him home & my crazy neighbor lady who loves to be nosey noticed he didn't leave for the bus this morning. So when I was out at the stop later w/my DD (2 different schools so 2 different busses & times but same stop) she said "I saw your son didn't make the bus this morning is he ok?" I thought it odd she knows my son wasn't on the bus as she has no middle school kids but anyway I said "no he is home sick w/a cough, sore throat & a bit of wheezing." She rolled her eyes & said "no wonder they are cracking down on days missed it is bc people keep their kids home when they shouldn't."
Yes maybe I am being a bit over protective but I know him & I know he is sick & the last place he needs to be is in a hot school filled w/germs to make him worse. He doesn't miss a lot of school & is on the honor roll & runs track. He hates missing school.
So anyway, now I am questioning myself & maybe I should've sent him to school. I really hate that I allow people to make me question myself :(
