Now this isn't really a big thing in my eyes but in A's eyes its huge. She has been so upset these past few days that K is sick and she isn't. K gets the Gatorade while A has to drink regular juice. K gets medicine and A doesn't. My children are weird and actually like taking the stuff. K got to stay home from school and A had to go to preschool and play with her best friend and flirt with her teacher. So on and so forth till eternity.
A has even taken it so far as to try her hardest to convince me that the thermometer is wrong and she really does have a fever and cough ( which you can hear the fakeness all the way over there can't you?) and desperately needs that medicine. Cough, cough. Oh brother.
What do you do with that? I'm not about to give her medicine she doesn't need, (though she might nap better), but No No, sorry I digress. She doesn't need the medicine but wants the attention of being sick.
So I pull out the cough drops and chicken soup and everyone has a sick bed in the living room and we have a pj's and movie day at our house. Does A win the drama war? i don't think so. I mean you like being the center of the world so why shouldn't my 4 year old?
If you don't laugh, you'll cry
