We almost made it, people. Almost. We almost made it to the end of the school year (June 3) with no one else coming down with some sort of contagion. And then I got a phone call last week that Declan's friend, who sits next to him in class, has pink eye.
Declan never got it.
But Finn did.
From the kid who sits next to him.
Fortunately, I was ready with drops AND a homeopathic remedy. I was taking no chances.
Finn: Will I be going to school tomorrow?
Declan: Aren't you supposed to stay home when you get pink eye?
Finn: But I'm going to school?
Because seriously, it's the last few days of school. Clearly everyone else has had it and given it to my kids, yet again. And I am annoyed. In fact, when I went over to school to give Finn the drops this morning (you've got to hit them 6 times in the first 24 hours), the kid who sits next to Finn said, "Hey, I've got a pink eye, too!"
Yes, I know, I heard.
And then I lectured him about handwashing.
Because I'm fun like that.
About the hair: I WILL post pictures, after Nick does his thing to it on June 7. I won't subject you to how I look on a daily basis--it's the "I just worked out and haven't had time to shower" look. No one needs to see that. Except the other parents picking up their kids after school.
