Wordless Wednesday: Sick Day

This fall, The Six-Year-Old caught a particularly nasty cold that dragged on for what seemed like weeks and weeks. In truth, it was five consecutive days of canceling playdates and school appearances. Skipping school wasn’t too bad, The Six-Year-Old assures me, but missing those playdates was a total drag.

Fortunately, The Six-Year-Old had Encyclopedia Brown’s Book of Wacky Crimes to cheer her up.

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.

    we loved sick days so much we decided to give up being sick and just unschool instead…I have so many great memories of lazy mornings reading on the couch with the girls–each of us caught up in our own book, or reading out loud to each other…it was the best!
