G managed to be sick on days that she had off from school anyway. B, on the other hand, missed school on Monday and Tuesday. As a result, we've been paying for it yesterday and today. She's had a bunch of math classwork and homework to catch up on, as well as a test that she ended up bringing home today. Figure in the facts that she still isn't feeling well and that she's a drama queen at the best of times, and you end up with me spending the better part of four hours (over two days) dealing with her as she's been sitting at the kitchen table complaining.
