On Friday morning, I was surprised to find Abigail and Sophia ready to go while Bella was still laying on the couch in her jammies. LG explained that he told Bella she could stay home from school as she had thrown up minutes before.
"Alright", I said, "but you look fine to me Bella, maybe you should try to go." Bella was having none of that. I let her stay home. She acted fine all day long.
I picked up Abigail after school; Bella was at home with Daddy and wasn't in the car for the conversation. Abigail felt it pressing to explain to me that Bella had succeeded at faking it. I told dad this morning that she did not throw up.
All she did was burp and spit.
As Abigail tattled away, I was thinking to myself that I wished I was a morning person so I could catch these things better. I was also thinking it was o.k. because Bella entertained her baby sister while I went back to bed for a few more zzz's. And this mom can never get enough sleep. So if you don't like how I roll, just pretend I was sick. I can also burp and spit on demand.
