What’s the only thing worse than one sick kid? Three sick kids. And a sick husband. And then the kids, having stayed home sick from school, get a sudden burst of energy. Not enough to be happy, well-behaved, well kids, just enough to be cranky, cantankerous, grumpy kids. Out of bed. Being cranky.
Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything. Just imagining a worst case scenario, you understand.
