About a half hour after school started today my son's teacher came to me and told me he'd thrown up and he was in the office (we don't have a school nurse and I teach where he goes). I had to take him home. Days like this I have to use a personal day. Fortunately we get 5 of them each year, but he was already out sick for a whole week back in March. Usually my dh and I can tag team so I don't have to use a whole day, but today I did. I'm not sure what's going to happen now, whether I'll miss a days pay or what. What do you do when your own children are sick?
