I woke up Friday morning feeling awful and discovered Saturday I had a terrible case of strep throat. I’ve been on antibiotic for four days and still feel fairly awful.
This is my second illness in three weeks, and I always seem to come down with it about two days after I help in Lilina’s first-grade classroom. (None of my kids are sick so it came from some place else!)
I picked up a terrible cold the first week of school helping in the kindergarten class. I ran into an aide in the class later in the week, and she was sick too.
I love, love, love helping in Lilina’s classroom. The kids are wonderful. I am good at teaching phonics and working on reading skills with them. But I just can’t get sick every week!
I used to get sick when I would babysit too. At one point my mother said she would pay me not to babysit.
I am taking all kinds of probiotics and vitamins to boost my immunity but I just catch things easily.
Have you ever gotten sick after helping at your child’s school? Is it worth the risk? Should I beg off until spring? (Funny thing is it’s still in the 70s and 80s here – hardly winter!)
