Is it OK to give a day off?

We awoke this AM to the sounds of my son getting sick in his loft bed. Not a fun thing to clean up or pleasant thing to wake up to. About an hour later my daughter got sick. She's rested on and off and has seriously perked up but is still not 100 %. She doesn't want to wear her glasses and I feel like the poor kid is sick, I can't bring myself to put an eye patch on her.

So, is it ok to just give her a day off of wearing it?


  1. oh poor kids! i think it is perfectly fine to not patch when they are this ill, being ill is stressful enough. they need all the rest they can get to get better quickly. hope they get better quick. and i agree, waking up to your child getting sick is not a fun way to start the day, my 12 year old did this a few times as a toddler!

  2. I think it's fine to take a day off when they're sick. I think it's probably counter productive to patch then as their eyes are probably glassy from fever etc so not seeing as well. Hope your children feel better soon.

  3. Oh, poor kids and poor mom! I agree with everyone else that giving her the day off of the patch and glasses should be ok. Hope everyone's back to being well soon!
