Today's 100 words:
My son asked to stay home from preschool today, which is how I know he must really be sick. He's like I was as a child--always eager to go to school, afraid to miss out on whatever his teacher has planned for the day. I didn't like to be out of the loop, and neither does he. So today I have a sick son watching TV in the living room and a daughter coughing as she eats her waffle. Then there's mom here, typing, coughing like her head will explode, and wondering again why mothers don't get sick days.
