DS6 is home sick from school today for the second consecutive day. He's admittedly feeling much better, but it's still best for him to recover at home for today.

Here's a conversation around how the decision was reached.

DS: Am I staying home today? I think it would be a good ideas as a precaution. I don't want to get my classmates sick before the long weekend.

Me: I think that's a good idea.

Later, DS is enjoying his morning bath.

DS (singing): Ferris Bueller....Ferris Bueller!

Me: DS, do you feel like Ferris Bueller today?

DS (shifty eyes): No...
