Scout is sick. And I didn't believe her. Again.
The main problem is that she is a bit of a drama queen (I wonder where she got that from?) So she tends to be a bit bigger than life when she talks about anything, including being sick.
She had a sleepover on Saturday which led to very grumpy Sunday which then led to a "I can't sleep" night which directly entered into "I have a stomachache morning" and then a random vomit. So, I shipped her off to my in-laws with a no TV, no Wii rule because I really thought she was faking.
Then I got the call from the mother of the girl she had the sleepover with...and she has strep throat.
I bowed my head an whispered a quick prayer..."PleaseGodletherbefinewhenIgethomefromworksoIdon'tfeellikeareallycrappymotheramen."
I don't think God understands my mumbles.
She has a fever, she has a bright red throat covered in ew inducing puss pockets. She has now slept for the entire day. She has strep throat.
So, I have proven once again that I am a horrible mother who shouldn't be trusted with my children.
