Bad Mommy Strikes Again

This morning little S woke up snotty and coughing and just generally ill. So I said to myself shes not sick. She's just a little tried.

The teacher in me said "Hey bad parent that child is sick. You cannot bring that baby to school."

The mommy in me said "This is curriculum morning at my school so its not at all a good day or week for a sick baby. She's fine."

The teacher me said "Hey bad parent you are bad bad bad. That baby is sick. You know the drill."

I walked around the apartment getting ready and tried to ignore that she was hot and sweaty and she gunk leaking out of her eyes as the teacher Suzie began chanting "bad mommy bad mommy".

I tired but after several rasping coughs that sounded like she had been singing in a smokey lounge all night and several sad little sickly wails I had to throw in the towel and admit she was (a little)sick.

"I know" I thought "I'll ask Hubby that way it wont be bad mommy at all making the decision it will be bad Daddy." I walked into my bedroom and woke up my hubby cradling my sicky baby. "Honey do you think she's too sick to go to school?"

The baby let loose a stream of green snot and rubbed her cakey little eyes. "Oh not at all. " My hubby croaked not opening up his eye to even check her out.


The baby decided the only way this was going to work was if she made the decision for us. She crawled out of my arms and curled up on his chest and with a little smile went to sleep.

So once again able to put on my perfect mommy crown I snuck out of the bedroom and took B to school.

I hope my Hubby notices shes there.

By the way I do apologise again for my bug stories. I will try to stop myself fwriting something gross for at least a week. I wont even blog about the strange bug on the wall last night that leapt on my hubby and tried to burrow in his face. So instead I will show great restraint and will cease and desist all bug stories for as long as I can.

You know we secretly love the bug stories. And we ar all so glad they didn't happen to us.
Hope your daughter is well. We've all done the whole "a little advil isn't really cheating" and sent them to school thing.

One Mom said...

Well, you'll just have to clone yourself this week. There is no good answer for this situation...except perhaps a sleeping daddy :)

texasholly said...

They are probably cuddling at this moment. That is the only good thing about them being sick is they are often cuddly.

Mrs Parks said...

Are the bugs gone.....?

Ok, I'm back.
I hope little sicky and the Mr have a good "bonding through snot" kind of day and everyone is feeling better soon : )

Hope your baby feels well soon. Honestly, I don't mind the bug stories. They don't gross me out.
Take care,
Julie

Heather said...

Poor little S. I hope she feels better soon.

BTW, I totally freaked my husband out with your lice story on Saturday. He scratched at his eye out of pure paranoia for the rest of the day.

adrienne said...

You're a very crafty mommy. Hope she feels better soon.
BTW, I tagged you today...no pressure...

I hope she gets better soon!

No worries about the bug stories, they were hilarious. :)

The Laundress said...

As of now, (1:23pm) how is she?

Thank you for the bug moratorium. I appreciate that.

THopgood said...

UGH...I don't miss those days. With 3 kids I found myself calling into work with one child or another who was sick on a weekly basis throughout the school year!

Hope she's feel'n better soon.

We are THAT Family said...

I've got a sick one too. I'm trying to relish her sleeping me because I know those days will end. Hope she feels better soon!

Kate Coveny Hood said...

Perfect description of a working mom trying to sneak a child with pink eye into daycare. Been there...and always got the call to come pick him/her up. Damn.

Valarie said...

I sorta liked the bug stories! Of course I don't want them to happen to you all the time, just for our entertainment, that would just be wrong. Sorry little one is sick, I hope she feels better.

the teach said...

Sorry she's sick but I hope she'll be better by tomorrow! :)

Meg said...

Hope baby gets better soon. I got one home today, too.

Laura said...

One of my student's didn't have such a good mommy today. About ten minutes into class (so that would be 7:40am), he asked if he could go to the bathroom--he feels like he needs to throw-up. I almost threw him out of the class. He came back a half hour later, announced to the class that he threw-up and went home. I'm so glad he had that chance to spread his germs to the rest of us.

Hope your baby is feeling all better.

soleil said...

I hope she's feeling better soon!

forgetfulone said...

SMART mommy! hehehe. I've been the bad mom before, sending my kids to school sick. Sometimes it comes back to bit me in the a$$! Oh well.

Thanks for the birthday wishes.

Vodka Mom said...

Annie said...

Poor baby - you're having a rough time between the germs and the bobo, aren't you? I hope everyone is better soon!

Colleen said...

Aw, poor little gal! Hope she's back to 100% soon!

MamaGeek said...

I'm sure all is well. These kinds of things just always work themselves out...

honeywine said...

lol Well, maybe he will. He doesn't do Playstation or XBox right? Cuz, if he does, I think you just committed a felony.

Kmommy said...

:( sick babies are no fun! and green slimy stuff, even less fun. This cold that has been going around is awful and hangs on forever! We are on week 2 of snot all over the place!

MommyWizdom said...

Did you really leave her there with him while he was still asleep?! ?! Holy Cow!!

April said...

LOL - this bad mommy always takes them to school :)
