Alyssa started daycare last week. It wasn't a full week because we played hookie on Friday. I then took her again on Monday. Monday night, she was coughing at 2am. I was livid! 5 days at daycare and already sit?!
She had no fever, and was happy as ever, so I took her back yesterday. I walked in and asked which kid had been coughing on mine. They felt really bad, but apparently, they were all sniffly so no big deal to leave. She sounded worse last night, but she slept through the night, 9 hours!
Got up this morning, still happy as ever, boy does she smile a lot now. I stuck her in her bouncey seat in the smallest bathroom we have with all the doors closed while I showered. I was hoping for the steam to knock all the "crud" loose. That worked!! I suctioned it all out, and she was even happier!
She then played for about an hour, and decided she wanted to take a nap at about 8:30. At this time, I'm thinking, if she falls asleep, we're playing hookie today, and I'm not taking her in. Grandma wants a Grandma say tomorrow, so is it OK for a 12 week old to play hookie from school 2 days in a row? I feel a little guilty...
It's still early, and she can easily go to school when she wakes up from this nap, probably at about 9:30 since her naps are only an hour long.... but I'm thinking 2 days home will help her get better sooner. Or, will she get better at the same pace since everyone who is already sick will also be getting better each day? Such a hard decision.
