Yesterday Ponch was home sick. She woke up looking a little weak and really puffy eyed. I told her if she did not feel good that she should go back to bed. She happily trotted off to the bedroom and went back to sleep for about 3 hours. She got up and started bugging me! She took a good hot shower and felt refreshed! She wanted nothing more but to go back to school, but with all of the Swine Flu freaking out going on, I would not let her go back to school until today. I did, however, let her play outside once the other kids got home. I did not see a problem with that.
So, this morning, Bucko decides that he is not planning on getting out of bed. He wasted 15 minutes of his time by just not getting up. I made him eat Pop Tarts. His response TEARS! Too bad! You reap what you sow!
Anyway, he finds his way to the living room, after a less than thrilling breakfast and started trying to dream up ways to tell me that he was sick. It was a good show, but not good enough to fool mom! He started by telling me his chest hurt. I asked why and he said that he felt like throwing up. When that didn't work, he told me that he did not like Math! Oh, valid reason for missing school, right? Sure. NOPE! Finally, he says, "well, you let A(Ponch) when she was home sick!" Oh, I know you are not playing every possible card to get a day off of school! I just told him he had to go and was going to be in huge trouble if he did not get on that bus!
What a deal! I have a kid trying to connive, but he is completely skill-less! Did I mention that he is 6? Not the best with the lying just yet! And, he probably never will be! I hope not anyway!
