First, let's preface this by saying that Duckie's classroom teacher is basically Mary Poppins, she's the sort of teacher we all want for our kids. The school nurse is quite wonderful too, very caring toward the kids no matter how small or seemingly insignificant the child's ailment. She's also very supportive and makes herself available to parents of children who have health issues. So... Duckie's been going to the nurse. A lot. I mean six times in two weeks: for a band-aid on a little red scratch (no blood), a tummy-ache, and four times in two days for a canker sore. She's missing waaaay too much class time in my humble opinion. The nurse agrees. So, I'm now putting anbesol jr on the canker sore, giving her motrin and sending her with salt water to swish around her mouth if it hurts. It worked yesterday, no visit to the nurse. Does anyone else have a budding hypochondriac?
