I'm Feeling Like A Horrible Person, I Am So Guilty!

In the early hours of Monday morning, Spud climbed up onto my bed and told me he wasn't feeling well, I shot up and turned the light on to wake myself up a bit more. Spud informed me he had a belly ache, 5 minutes later he was on the toilet, and that's how the rest of the day went, no school, instead lots of movies and snuggles at home with Mummy. Tuesday Spud was more perked up and we had no toilet incidents, but he couldn't go back to school because of the 48 barrier. 

So today, we wake up to the alarm, and Spud informs me he has a belly ache, I asked him if he was telling the truth because he was fine yesterday (Tuesday) he said yes, I wasn't so sure though. Since discovering Spud's troubles at school, I thought maybe he was making up an excuse to not go, so I tell Spud he has to go to school, and if he is poorly they will call me up.

All is well until 2pm when I'm at Asda doing the weekly shop and my phone starts ringing, the name flashes up and its Spud's school, I answer and its the news I thought it may of been, I needed to collect Spud as he had a little accident, so I pay for my shopping and go to pick my boy up, the first thing he said to me was I told you I had a belly ache Mummy. I have never ever felt so guilty in my life, I apologised and when we got home I gave my baby the biggest cuddle ever. Sadly, it looks as though my Spud has got a bug, not a 24 hour bug, but a bug that's likes to have a day break so it seems.

The thing is, is I'm sure you've done it in the past, weather it be to your parent's to get out of school, your work, or even a friend for that much dreaded gym session, we've all lied and said we was poorly when we wasn't and as Spud was genuinely fine yesterday, I honestly thought he was trying to nab another day off school. Now I know he was not fibbing but indeed telling the truth, so when my Spud is feeling better, we are off to town to get him something new as Mummy is feeling terrible for sending him to school with a bad belly!

Today one of the item's we have been sent for review has come in very handy! Make sure you check out the blog later for our review on Organic Children Hand Sanitizer.

Until next time,
Jade.

  1. Don't worry I used to tell my mum all the time I wasn't feeling well and on the day I really didn't feel well she made me go to school and I threw up all over the classroom floor. I also said the same thing to my mum when she collected me, I told you I was ill, she told me off on the way home for saying that, I guess it was my own fault for trying to get time of school in the past, hope your little spud is better now :)

    1. Thank you Lucy, I do need to stop stressing so much but I don't want Spud to think I didn't listen to him, because I did, I just honestly thought he was trying to blag another day off school because of whats been going on. Lol little boy cried wolf springs to mind reading your comment, I will make sure next time he tells me he is poorly I take proper note before sending him to school x

  3. The whole to send or not to send thing is always one that I get wrong... they seem well you send them against their complaints then you get a phone call.. next time they complain you keep them off and by 10am they are bouncing off the walls! Don't feel guilty I'm sure Spud has forgotten about it by now x
