I’m a wiseacre. You knew that.
Kiddo#1 wasn’t sick enough to stay home from school, but had a tickle in his throat. He wanted to bring some cough drops.
I gave him a few in a baggie.
He said, “You need to send a note.”
This school has, in the past, refused to administer a Tylenol to him for a school-related injury. They’ve refused to let to take it himself. They’ve refused to let me send him to school with a prescription antibiotic.
And now he needs a note for cough drops? My sarcastic side came out, I’m afraid. I scrawled on a note-square of paper, “This is a cough drop. -Jane”
Kiddo#1 laughed his head off. I so much hoped they’d call me from the school, but they didn’t.
