What if you could just skip Monday? Apparently, in Jake's world, you can.
Jake missed school last Thursday and Friday because he was sick. On Friday afternoon, we 'discussed' the time he was missing from school. Of course, by 'discussed' I mean that I was offering up a monologue about how he missed 2 days because of his cold and then had another 2 days away from school because of the weekend. I thought I was reassuring him that our normal routine would soon resume when I told him that he would return to school on Monday.
"I don't want to go to school!"
"But, Jake, you like school. Remember? You get to go back on Monday."
"Then, we'll not have Monday!"
So now here we are, on this day formerly known as Monday, stuck at home once again. Jake still has a cough. He's not quite well enough to go to school, but somehow has just enough energy to drive a mama crazy.
Evidently, my little guy has more pull with the powers that be than I thought. I wonder if he will take requests...
