...because difficult child hasn't complained of being sick for a week now. No sore throat, no upset stomach, no knee pain, no wrist pain, no headache...nothing. Either she literally makes her self sick with her anxiety, or it's one helluva coincidence. She's had numerous strep tests the last few months because her throat really was so red. But no complaint of sore throat since the last day of school. by the way, difficult child said she was going to miss her school (she's going to the junior high next year). All I heard all school year was how much she hated it. And I endured daily morning battles and nighttime meltdowns because of it. Wish the kid would make up her mind.
