Just a little break would be nice...

My poor DS1 cannot catch a break like his mom. He woke up screaming last night that his ears hurt. He has only ever complained about his ears once and that was last year when he had his first ear infection ad it was a double one at that. Since we have nothing for ear drops, I expressed some bm in a cup and used a dropper and put some in both ears with cotton balls. He woke up this morning and his ears no longer hurt so I said it was ok for him to go to school. It was his valentines day party at school today. In his folder there was a letter from his teacher that they had to send a kid home today because he had pink eye. Neither my DH or my mom thought to check his folder until after I got home from work and made dinner. So it's about 8pm and I ask I he had homework and I find this note. Now I'm thinking crap, I have nothing for pink eye except bm and it took both DH and into hold him down for his ears, no way will he let me near his eyes. Sure as poop around 9, DS1 starts to rub his eyes hard and I can see huge gobs of mucus near them. So he does have pink eye now. I cleaned his eye out with warm water and the. Pinned him down and put a few drops of bm in both eyes because I don't want it to spread. Tomorrow is his last day of school before winter break and now he won't be going.
Is it really too much to ask that I your child is sick or has something contagious like pink eye that you keep them home???? Thank heaven I'm bfing so I have bm at hand to nip this stuff in the bud but it still stinks.
