Evelyn stayed home from school today. Mostly, I think she’s suffering from seasonal allergies, like I am.
She tried to convince me that she was well enough to play with friends at Parents’ Morning Out, but I thought that was a bad precedent to set (“Oh, sure, you stayed home from school, but of course you can hang out with your friends this morning!”).
She got mopey, and then came out with this gem:
“I don’t think it’s a sickness, I think it’s a hurtness.”
