I probably am and I will probably change my mins its only 7am and I am awake early because of pain
Last night I was walking down the stair stood on the cat and slipped from the top to the bottom of the stairs.
I have grazed and pulled both of my arms so have bleeding sore bits on them, my back is twisted so it hurts to move or stand and my poor ickle (well ok quite big) bottom is bruised like no ones business. I hurt everywhere . I have three young children to get to school and back which is about a mile each way. No family to help (my husband cant take time off work).
would it be totally unreasonable to keep my daughter home and lie still for the day?
poor you [hugs] Are there no neighbours with children who can help? I would probably try to get them to school so I could suffer on my own in peace. But if you are too sore to get the there and there is no one to help then I'm sure them missing one Friday isn't the end of the world.
I might call the school and ask although I am worried about them saying it will go as unauthorized because it says in the little book that parental illness is not a reason for absence and it will not be authorized!. My little girl is only in reception and I dont really know the others mums very well.
I talk to them in the playground but dont have any contact details etc.
The cat is fine - he seems to have come out of it totally unharmed which is amazing. I think it was the action of avoiding him which made me fall lol.
It would be ideal if you could get someone to take her, but not because it would be bad for her to miss. I think its a good enough reason to miss a day. But, if she is at school, you can lie still without having to look after her, rest and recover in peace.
