MY daughter got violently ill recently… diarreah, vomiting, the works. We kept her quiet so she could rest. She watched TV, played with stuffed animals, read books, etc. We gave popsicles, pretzels, and such. Except for being sick, it must have been pretty sweet for her. Attention, hours of TV and junk food!
She’s much better now. The junk food is put away and the TV is back to it’s normal “off” state.
This morning, as I was brushing my teeth, she says, “Daddy, I want to watch TV.”
“No, honey. We have to get ready for school.”
She paused for a moment. “I’m not feeling good. I might throw up. I need to watch TV.”
