I have been trying to talk Eli into staying home from school today because of this nasty cough he is sporting. We took him to the doctor yesterday and he said it was a touch of a sinus infection and that he was not contagious and would be fine for school today. But call it mom's intuition, I think he will have a rough day with this barking cough.
When I told him I was going to keep him home today he said, and I quote, "But I want to go to school, mom. I have to learn. Children have to go to school mom to learn or else they will be dummies. I don't want to be a dummy mom."
He makes a good argument.
