Skipping Today

Today is, or was supposed to be, the day I work in the nursery at church. I say "supposed to" because now I'm not going.


Because when I got out of the shower and took a good look at Son (who didn't wake up until I was showering), I realized that his left eye was all red and gross looking.

"Pink eye! He can't go to church! He can't go to school tomorrow!"

Thus began a round of phone calls to let the proper people know I wouldn't be able to work nursery duty today. I wound up having to call the pastor, who didn't sound too thrilled to be getting this news so last minute (his wife is basically in charge of the children's ministry).

I can't help it. Son certainly can't help it. This is called life, folks! Kids get sick!

I told Husband (as he was showering) about all the calls I'd made, and said "This is why there needs to be some sort of contingency plan, so we're not scrambling at the last minute!"

I also spoke with the pediatrician on call, and she's calling in eye drops for Son. He, Son, is happy as a clam because now he can mess around with the encyclopedia software Husband installed on one of the laptops. He also isn't too upset at missing school tomorrow.

As for me, I suppose I'll be sputtered about in church today, but I don't care. Do they honestly think I'd take Son and expose all the other kids? Sheesh. I refuse to feel guilty about my kid being contagious!
