- Once upon a time, I used to roll my eyes whenever a coworker would miss a day of work because their child was sick. “How often do kids really get sick?” I would wonder. “Sounds like an excuse for the parent to get out of their shift, if you ask me.” As punishment for such insolence, I’m now blessed with a one year old who gets sick ALL. THE DAMN. TIME. Monday, as I sat at the Wolves-Jazz game, my wife’s texts about our little guy’s condition got progressively sadder, beginning with “runny nose” to “feels a little warm” to “crabby as hell and won’t go to bed” to “please come home so you can take over and I can get some sleep.” The poor boy got very little shut-eye, and was only content if he was being rocked. Between the gallons of snot and loud cries shortly after I got him back in his crib, the recap didn’t get done in a timely manner. Parents, you can relate. Skeptical non-parents, karma’s a bitch. Tread lightly.
