Elliot is home, sick, today. Yesterday we had an early morning visit to the After Hours doctor - Elliot had croup which he hasn't had since he was a baby. Most painful was the $60 charge (for a six year old!) at the doctors. He never gets sick when our own GP is available. Anyway, today he is home from school. He probably could have gone but it is so cold today I decided to keep him home.
I told Elliot that if he was staying home he had to take it easy and could not play on the Playstation. His response? "Why not? The police won't see me!"
My fault. He doesn't like school much and often says "Why do I have to go?" In frustration one day I said "Because it's the law in New Zealand. If you don't go to school a policeman will tell Mummy off!" It seems he remembered.
Anyway here he is a few minutes ago - very sick, of course! (Note the Cropper Hopper project case and the acid free cardstock- essential art supplies for a six year old.)
PS Thanks for all the suggestions about what to do with the extra PS2. We decided to give it to our niece and nephew in Nelson. It was couriered to them in the weekend and Elliot even insisted on giving them 2 games. "I don't need these anymore". As Oprah say... pay it forward.
