my kindergartener was sent home from school yesterday with a sore throat. themr took him to the dr this morning and he has strep throat. before nap time, he was complaining that he needed medicine for his throat. he informed me that he wanted what the nurse gave him because it worked the best. the conversation went like this:
me: what did the school nurse give you?
him: it was purple and it worked the best.
me: what was it called?
him: ummmm... i think it was called alcohol. yeah, that's it. it was grape alcohol. after she gave it to me i felt much better.
me: alcohol? are you sure that's the name?
him: no wait, it was called tylenol! i want some purple tylenol.
uh, ok. i'm relieved to know that they're not giving my six year old alcohol at his private christian school, LOL!
