Kay Takes (Another) Sick Day

I will admit it: my daughter Kay does not have a stellar school attendance record. She acts as if daily attendance is a suggested guideline, and not an actual mandate.

With this in mind, I make a concerted effort to make sure her days at home are not that fun. Today she was legitimately able to miss a school day (she was less than 24 hours fever-free) even though she was not really still sick.

I told her to find something do in the kitchen while I did the dishes.

She found toothpicks:

And, with help from her loyal sidekick Giraffe-y, made this:

And then this:

With the day still young, she deemed it Giraffe-y's birthday, and dressed her up in her best finery:

And invited Seal-y over for a party-in-a-shoe (which apparently are all the rage):

All in all, Kay had a good sick day. Maybe even too good. (Self-portrait with mommy's phone.)

But tomorrow?

Kay, you're going to school.

this reminds me of my son's throwing up at school so I had to take him home day.
It was after a school party in the morning, and he couldn't have eaten more that evening if he tried.

Poor thing! At least you give her some activities :)

Party-in-a-shoe sounds awesome!
My 7YO son loves those big-eyed stuffed animals like Giraffey.
Hope your girl is feeling better!

the big-eyed stuffed animals are a hit at our house too. my 2-year-old calls them all cat which at first i thought was riddiculous, but i have come around to his point of view - i mean giraffey has no neck! he is a total cat giraffe!

Sounds like a fun sick day. Hope to see you soon!

Stasha said...

You silly! I would rather stay home and do art projects with mommy too!!

Patricia Purcell said...

My kids like sick days too...and we homeschool! It must just be the break in the routine that's fun for them.

Kelley said...

Ha! That sounds like a fun day to me! I love how she color coordinated the toothpicks. What struck me about this acitivity was how quiet it must've been. I don't have a lot of those kinds of activities going on around my house! Thanks for linking up with us over at #findingthefunny this week!
