difficult child's friend H is over right now. He has been here all afternoon. He just said that he needs to go home about 6:30 so his mom can look at his throat. I said, "Why? To see if you have strep again?" (He pretty much is a living strep throat case) "Yes" "Then why are you over here?" "Because difficult child doesn't have his tonsils - he can't get strep." I am not happy with this! If he is sick, he is sick! You don't take a survey of those friends without tonsils and go play with them. Has anyone else heard that if you don't have tonsils you can't get sick if someone has strep? I doubt this kid has strep. He is way to alert, active, ect. If there is a possibility, then he should be kept home. Or atleast his mom should have called me to tell me, "Hey, H is under strep throat watch this weekend/week. He is not showing signs of it but since he gets it so much lately I wanted to let you know. Is it still o.k. if he goes to your house to play with difficult child?" But then again, I am kicking them off the X-Box and without that to do, he probably is just using that as an excuse to leave?
