In line with my commitment to share with you important news pretty soon after it happens, I present this breaking news report on The Five-Year-Old’s scholastic progress.
This morning at 8:07 a.m. The Five-Year-Old tried to convince me she was too sick to go to school for the very first time.
The Five-Year-Old: “Mommyo, I really miss our lazy mornings. It’s giving me a fever on one side of my head.”
Sure enough, according to our forehead thermometer, The Five-Year-Old’s left temple registered a healthy 98.6 while her right clocked in at 99.2 degrees. Normally I’d write this off as user error on my part, but The Five-Year-Old’s precision in describing her fever is kind of suspicious. I can’t help but wonder how she managed it.
Regardless, I am one of those Moms who requires the fever to encompass the entire head before granting the stay home from school pass, so The Five-Year-Old reported to class as usual this morning.
I am pleased to report that she had a very good day and happily joined me in rounds of Frère Jacques on our way home.
