I was home with a sick kid today, most likely H1N1. She wasn't sick enough to go to the doctor, but too sick to send to school. Hopefully it won't go right through the house. It's really crazy about the flu and the vaccine. Funny story - the girl that is sick here got all caught up in grade four little girl drama on the day their vaccination clinic was announced last week. Big welling up eyes at supper, freaking about getting a needle, this girl says... that boy said.... It was kind of out of character because she's a tough little girl most of the time Look out if she's coming at you for the ringette ring. Anyway, she was getting herself all worked up about the needle. Later that night it started again, so I suggested there might be a reward for people who get through the vaccination without drama. Just suck it up, essentially. A minute later, I hear a calm, little voice, "What kind of reward?" Dramatic situation averted due to bribery. I'll have parenting advice here every week, thank you very much.
Don't forget to vote at Suey's for this week's Bookword Game. She'll have results later in the week and then new word for suggestions.
In reading, I just arrived in the English countryside to stay with my cousins, but war has just broken out and there are no adults in the house right now. There should probably be some supervision, because some inappropriate behaviour is occurring. (How I Live Now, Meg Rosoff)
