Our school doesn't break up until friday so we are still in normal school mode. Ds has had a really manic weekend, sleep over friday, out for the day saturday and swimming today and is pretty knackered. This afternoon he has developed a cough and normaly i wouldn't think too much about it, he is asthmatic so gets a bad cough with the slightest cold. Fil was round this afternoon and went on and on about blooming swine flu. I don't think ds has flu, a cold maybe, but not flu. Now am I going to look like the most irresponsible parent in the world if he goes to school tomorrow with a cough?

As a pregnant teacher I would say "please keep away!"

I understand why you would say that. Because he has asthma and everything goes straight to his chest I really don't want him to catch anything from school either.

It's the end of term anyway, keep him at home.
