"Mrs. Cool, would you please come pick up Guyan?"

Guyan went to school today feeling fine. About an hour in (at the end of his geology test), he complained to the teacher that he had a headache. He went down to the office, and his temperature was 99. Given that Cascadia has about 25% of their student body out, and many children have thrown up in their classrooms, they decided it was time to call me. Not a problem--I don't fault them for it.

I picked him up, and took his temperature when we got home. 97. Took it on another thermometer. 97.4. Apparently the boy runs cold. Two hours later--97.1. He's fine.

But he, and his brother, think this is a free day. "Can we play Wii? computer? Watch Flushed Away?" Continued nagging led to the posting of this sign.

Love it. I can imagine you just pointing to the sign when they come up to ask.

I was waiting for that same call today, but it never came... If I do get that call, can I borrow your board? Might come in handy!

That's great Melinda! I can't wait until all of my kids can read so I can make a sign! The other day when I was under the weather, Gavin kept asking me if he could watch TV because I was sick. It drove me crazy!

Crikey you're strict. And organised. Could you come on over here and sort my kids out? There's a love.
