Cough, Sneeze, Yak and Wheeze

It's that time of year.

The height of "there just ain't enough antibacterial gel in the world to protect my from all the cooties in my classroom" season.

As an aside, am I the only one who thinks the "AIRBORNE was developed by a school teacher who was sick of catching colds in class" ads are sketchy? Call me crazy, but I like my pharmaceutical products to be developed by....oh, I don't know...a PHARMACIST! I mean, I myself am a school teacher who is sick of catching colds in class, but I'm not about to dabble with the Foss Kits while the kids are at gym and develop a miracle cure and attempt to market it to the general public.

But as usual, I digress. Little Man spent the first five days of the winter break with a fever. Which while it did mean I spent the first five days of the winter break nursing a fever, I was grateful to have been spared the need to juggle five sick days. Anyhow, it was a reminder of how quickly and unexpectedly sick days arise so I figured it was a good time to redirect you (and enlighten my new readers with) the week long series I did this summer on how to prepare emergency sub plans.

I've organized all of the blog entries I did that week so that you can read them sequentially. There is a tab at the top of this page titled, or you can just click here to jump to it.

My entire emergency sub plan unit is available here.

I like to think of them as an insurance policy. It's like bringing an umbrella on a cloudy day to insure that it won't rain.

Haha, I actually looked that up when I first heard the Airbourne commercials because I was like, hmm weird. Apparently she was sick of catching colds so she contacted those who know about these sorts of things, since clearly we do not. I'm pretty sure it's still a bit of scam though :)
Hope the little one feels better quick!
