T1 was sick this past week, and stayed home from school on Monday and Tuesday. Monday he was listless and refusing milk (this is the moment when I fully grasped how sick he was), but Tuesday was a day between sickness and health. Based on the preschool guidelines I could have sent him in, but I took advantage of my self-employed status and kept him home to play with us instead. We went to Happy Hollow with friends and picnicked and rode on Danny the Dragon. I was grateful for my privileged ability to be flexible, but after 48+ hours with both kids without a break I was very happy to slip back into our routine again on Wednesday.
