I need help with understanding my daughters idea of proven illness. I had watched my grandchildren over the weekend while my daughter and her husband went to a work party. The day after watching the kids I came down with a nasty tummy bug that knocked the wind out of me. I texted my daughter to see if any of the kids were feeling bad but to my delight they were all well, that is until today. I picked up my eldest granddaughter from school for a scheduled outing but when I saw her I knew she wasn't feeling well. She gave me her list of issues (which were exactly what I had) and asked if we could skip the shopping trip and just go home. She is a senior in high school, a cheer leader and never misses school.
As soon as I got her to her home she went straight for the bathroom and then promptly fell asleep on the couch. I stayed for awhile but let my daughter know how sick her daughter was.
I just found out from my granddaughter that she will be going to school tomorrow even if she isn't feeling better-moms rules are no fever, no puking you go to school. I don;t get it, she knows her daughter and a virus is a virus, feeling like a truck hit you is putting it mildly:(,,,Why?
