I’m waiting for my son, E, to poop.
Until he has a solid movement, he can’t go back to daycare.
Which means he’s been home all week with me while I scramble to work late into the nights. I’m not sure which of us is more stir crazy, him being stuck inside or me, stuck watching mind numbing TV shows like Thomas the Train and Barney. At any rate, this might be the first time I’ve prayed for poop.
I’m not sure where he picked up whatever stomach bug he has, either the communicable disease factory known as daycare or perhaps from a certain fast food restaurant where he ate lunch at on Monday. If it IS the daycare, it would seem that someone sent their kid to school sick. Which means one of two things:
- Kids are getting sick and becoming contagious before their parents notice and can keep them home from daycare
- Parents don’t care about whether their kids spread their sickness to everyone else in the school so long as they are not personally inconvenienced
Given that E seems to catch something at the rate of once a week, I would suspect the latter. This, however, is the longest he’s been out from school. Even swine flu didn’t keep him out the whole week. So, I’m going to devote the next few months into finding, or perhaps creating a solution.
I call it the No Sick Bubble.
I better not see some company come and steal my idea. Unless, of course, you give me one for free.
