You are NOT Going to Bring Your Sick Child to Class are You Darling?

Hello my Dear Friend!  Welcome welcome... come make yourself comfortable and let me fill your cup with a nice fresh brew of 'Sniffle sniffle cough cough'.  As promised, a new Mommy Lesson starts right now...

The cold season is among us and I'm sure you heard that it is one of the worst in a very long time.  It's sooo bad in the state of Massachusetts that they have declared a state emergency!  Oh my... There has been so much in the news, I've seen much on Facebook and even Twitter has a hash tag for #epidemic about all who is unhealthy.  What to do what to do... how can we help to not spread these sick germs?  DON'T SEND YOUR SICK KID TO SCHOOL!  Ahem... excuse me, I need to touch up my lipstick as it got just a tad bit smudged with that last sentence... be right back...

Ahhh... much better!  Now where was I?  Oh yes, sending unhealthy, hacking, runny nosed, sore throat kids to school!  How could any Mommy send their sick child to school?  Now that I think about it... bring them to a play date, a sports class, a music festival, a party, the movies, the grocery store... how about not taking your sick child anywhere except to their bed to get some rest!  Who are these Mommys?  Well I know for sure that it's not you my Darling.

We've all seen these poor kids, hacking away and sneezing and sniffling between taekwondo kicks and piano pieces... it's not their fault, the poor Darlings take their cue from... from... those Mommys who don't give a damn or are unaware that their child has runny green snot hanging off their bottom lip!  Ewww... gross!  I just got reminded of a visual... BLECH!

Sooooo.... well now my Dear, do you tell that Mommy to take her child home?  Or at least ask that Mommy why she has brought her coughing child to the party?  I certainly do as I want to know exactly what it is that my family will be catching so I can at least prepare myself by sanitizing the door handle of the exit before I make my escape with my child in hand!

My my... I'm getting a bit worked up and it's not good for my complexion!  Breathe Caffe breathe... 
I need to run Darling... I need to go to the store and stock up on wipes and Lysol and maybe a new lipstick... or 4 lipsticks... yes, that will make me feel much better!

Until next time my Dear Friend, stay healthy and take your vitamins... Ta Ta!

  2. AMMMMEEEENNNNNN sista. It is gross and a total loack of consideration for the others around you. We just got a letter from our preschool stating that we have an outbreak of the Noro Virus. I have seen kids brought into the gym day care sick as dogs with worse snot running down their nose then your lovely pic above. It is just plain nasty

  3. I do not get it either. I work at an elementary school and see it all the time. Used to see it when I taught pre-school too. The kid would have green snot in their nose and the mom would say, "Oh, I didn't realize it!" Huh? The moms who send their sick child to school are the ones who have yoga class, a coffee, or some other place they want to go and they don't want to get stuck home with their sick kid. Shame on them. It's not just about spreading the germs, it's about taking care of your own child's needs!

  4. Totally agree with you Caffe.. but sometimes it happens in a reverse way. Unfortunately, one of my kids was sent back home after becoming sick instantly from a stomach flu bug last week. Now all 5 of us are fighting it.. and it looks like we are winning! ;)
