An Indication That The Child Is Feeling Better

Mommy leaves the room

Child begins to jump on her mini trampoline

Mommy returns

“What? There is no jumping on the trampoline! Sick children do not jump on the trampoline! Sick children lie quietly on the couch under blankets, drinking fluids and letting their little bodies rest and recover from their colds! You have a fever. Where are your socks? It’s too cold for no socks! Locate your socks! Return to the couch! This is not a Fun Day, this is a Sick Day!”

Child stamps, flails limbs about and wails

“You never let me have any fun!!!!”

Child finds socks and returns to the couch, pulling its knees up to its chest, crossing its arms, protruding its lower lip from its face, and glowers at Mommy

Yea, she’ll be just fine : )
