Since when does being sick get you out of being in trouble?
Just a quick vent...
So my SD11 is grounded for refusing to do her chores pretty much every day. Her favorite excuse is "I forgot" even though it is something she is told to do every day.
Last night I officially lost it and told my DH he needs to be home to take care of his children because I can't do it anymore. I shouldn't be angry every day because of them but I am, and I need a serious break from it all before I lose my mind.
Anyway, today she gets sent home from school for throwing up, but she's seemed fine all day since she's been home. She called and asked her dad if she could watch tv (because he must have told her not to bother me at all today), and he said yes. I'm mad. I understand she is sick but why does that mean she should get to watch tv if she's still grounded? Since when does being sick get you out of trouble? That definitely wasn't how it was when I was a kid. If I got sent home from school or stayed home sick from school, I stayed in bed. And I didn't even have to be in trouble for that to be the case. If I was too sick to be at school, then I should be in bed resting, period.
