Yesterday the Director was sniffling and coughing and lethargic. This morning when I went to wake him for school, I wasn’t surprised when he said he was sick.
Now, in our household we have a rule about missing school: if you’re too sick to go to school, you’re too sick to play on the computer. This rule is to prevent a kid with a case of don’t-wanna-go’s from staying home just so he can spend the day playing video games. Sick kids must spend the day quietly resting.
A little after ten, Alpha Geek called down the hall to me, “Would you help me get this kid off the computer? He’s just giving me dirty looks.”
“He’s on the computer?” I called back. “He must be feeling better. I can still take him to school, there’s several hours left.”
By the time I got there, he was shutting down the computer, with much heavy sighing and glowering in my direction.
Yep, I’m a horrible parent.
