Tuesday I got a call from the elementary school. Kyle had thrown up. I headed to the school to get him, rented a couple of red box movies, picked up some of the necessary sick tummy food (crackers and sprite), and settled in at home.
Wednesday morning rolled around. Kyle was feeling perfectly fine. He had eaten dinner and breakfast. Wasn’t running a fever or anything. He could not go to school, however, because he had to be well for 24 hours.
So I decided to play hookie too! And I kept Haley home as well. May as well make it a family affair. 😮 (Couldn’t convince the hubs, he seems to think we should pay some bills this month.) This new found freedom brought many possibilities – What to do? What to do?
Make a trip to Ikea in Phoenix, of course. (I had been compiling a list of things we needed from there. And the kids love their play land.) Followed by a matinee of Monsters vs Aliens. (The kids loved it. It was a good movie and the 3D didn’t bother me this time) And a trip to Hobby Lobby. (We don’t have one in Tucson. Don’t cry for me…Argentina?)
It all went well until Hobby Lobby. That is when Taylor threw up. *sigh* So we headed back home – and he threw up several times on the way home. Eww – my car is getting professionally cleaned this weekend. It needed it anyway, there was already a milk incident that made things bad to begin with. The puke just pushed it over the top.
Oh and in case you’re wondering, never ever leave your left over Chipotle hidden in the car…for weeks. Boy that gets gross….really gross. (Seriously, I thought it was the milk incident that just wouldn’t go away…once I found and removed the Chipotle the car smelled normal gross – not kill me gross.) I need car help! (Note: None of this is the fault of Chipotle. I still stand by their deliciousness. It’s not their fault my car is a total disaster.)
So the lesson in all of this?
Playing hookie with your kids is a bad bad idea.
And maybe clean your car more often than I do.
