What would you do. Dd has a cold should I send her to school?
Poor dd has a bit of a cold and a cough but has no temp, is running around eating, sleeping etc. Should I send her to school? Just seems a shame keeping her off as they have the Easter performance this week.
She is 5 and a half btw. Thanksx
Which day is the Easter performance, BH? If it's at the end of the week it might be worth keeping her off for a day or 2 to make sure she isn't run ragged by then; if it's at the beginning then send her, if she's not actually ill, as Tinker says
DS2 always seems to flag at the end of every half term, and starts to come down with some bug or other, and I know he's not up to a full week. I just keep him off whichever day is most convenient to me, and when I know he won't miss anything too exciting. Actually on Thursday he went to sleep on the sofa at 8 am and was sound asleep, so I kept him off. But he was full of beans when he woke up, so I sent him back in at lunchtime!
I'd keep her off tomorrow BH so she'll be well for the show.
Thanks BH - yes, he was fine today. Yesterday he stayed in bed all day, I got him up to walk to school to fetch ds2 for some fresh air. He was asleep in bed earlier than usual, had good night's sleep, and woke up full of beans this morning
