Today’s topic is anxiety or allergy? First though we managed to get Jack to school without his Nintendo Switch again. Though it was more difficult today as expected. He was more argumentative than yesterday. Because we purposefully didn’t charge it last night. We told him it needs to stay at home. To be charged.
He normally reply’s with he can charge it at school. But before he could. I added that his parcel won’t come if he doesn’t go to school. He got an amazon voucher for his birthday. He ordered a Harry Potter Lego set. (Affiliate link)He’s excited for the Lego. Especially as it comes with a Voldemort. But he’s also excited to be getting a parcel. He has always got excited by receiving mail addressed to himself.
Anyway, the double tactic work. He begrudgingly went out the door in a bad mood. What I find funny though. Is when his transport assistant says good morning. He cheerfully replies back with a big smile. Obviously it’s only me who is the bad guy.
Lily is sick again
Lily was due back to school today. But she was sick again. I’m getting very concerned as to what is going on. It doesn’t look like a stomach bug would normally look to me. Which leads me to wonder what else it could be.
The ideas that spring to mind. Is it is anxiety related. Her anxiety is certainly at a high level at the moment. But enough to be physically sick? The other is an allergic reaction. Lily has a history of allergy problems. The list of things she is allergic to, is ever growing.
Whatever the problems is. Hopefully we get is sorted soon. And Lily feels better. Lily will be off for the rest of the week now. With the 48 hours sickness rule at school. Then it’s half term school holiday next week.
We’ve got some arts & crafts and experiment type stuff to do in the holidays. I might have to get some out this week. To keep Lily entertained. Today it has been Jenga. Which is still fun. I don’t have a very steady hand. So I normally lose without having to let Lily win. To keep her happy. We have also been playing LOL monopoly. Which I’m not so keen on. But Lily enjoys it.
We have been having a “game break”. But I’m now being called back again. The things you do to keep your kids happy!
