Did you ever have one of those days when your kid doesn’t feel well, but wants to go to school just for math and then come home?
Probably not, right?
Did you ever pick up your child after math and give her a homeopathic remedy, and while you think she is watching television and playing with Polly dolls quietly in your bed, you even write a blog post about the math and the homeopathic remedy?
So, then . . . I bet none of these scenarios would have happened to you either:
You looked up from your laptop and asked your child why she put your pillow on the floor.
Your child said, “That’s where I spilled my glass of water.” Then you said, “The entire glass?” And then she said, “Don’t worry, the pillow will soak it up.”
You looked up from your laptop and asked, “Why is there a rubbery black spider on my ceiling?” Then your child said, “I threw it up in the air and it stuck to the ceiling. Heehee.”
So, you went to get the broom. Your child got all excited and said, “Let me do it! Let me get it down!” You replied, “No way. I don’t want you making a black mark on the ceiling with the end of the broom.” Your child said, “I’ll be careful. I can do it.” You replied, “Stand back.”
Mindful of the black handle on the end of the broom, you whisked at the spider with the bristled end and melded the spider’s rubbery black corpse into the ceiling.
So then you went for the ladder. Your child wanted to climb up the ladder to get the spider down because that would be fun. But watching television on the ladder was more fun. Also, it was pretty much impossible for your child to reach the rubbery spider.
So, you climbed up the ladder, pulled the spider down, and noticed a greasy stain with black rubbery spider residue exactly where you’d previously smashed the black rubbery spider into the ceiling with the broom.
Naturally, you moistened a soft cloth with warm water to wipe the greasy black rubbery spider stain with residue, and removed paint from your ceiling. The greasy stain with black rubbery spider residue is still there.
Later that night, you put away your laptop, climbed into bed, and something hard poked you in the butt (not that, gosh, your husband was still in the bathroom). You pulled back the comforter to find a popcorn cart between the sheets.
No? Not one of these scenarios has ever happened to you? Then if your child is not feeling well, clearly you
pay attention to your child should try math followed by a homeopathic remedy.
