Today is The Goon Squad’s first day of school, except they aren’t going. Ian is sick.
Who misses the first day of school? I feel like such a dork. I was really looking forward to going to the grocery store by myself too.
But Ian is coughing and snotty – oh yeah, and he puked up an entire breakfast bar this morning before his sister even woke up. I don’t think the other parents would appreciate it if I sent Ian to class (can you even call it a classroom when it has a rice table in it?) all barfy and got all of their kids sick on the very first day.
Crap. I even spent AN HOUR at the pediatrician’s office yesterday waiting for them to fill out the proper forms. (Yes, they were due last Monday, but I am not very good at reading directions.) I really hope that isn’t where Ian got sick.
I shouldn’t even say this out loud, but Claudia seems fine. So far. I just can’t take her to school alone for her first time. You other twin parents understand, right?
In conclusion, instead of going to a book store all by myself this morning I will be cleaning up vomit and pretending I don’t have a sore throat.
I guess they will go to school tomorrow, or maybe next Tuesday. I guess on the bright side, I might not have to go get my scheduled tetanus shot tomorrow.
