Monster Ben:

Yesterday Ben was sent home from school because his cheeks were flushed and his eyes were leaky. He said he felt fine, and the nurse checked for a temp and found a normal 98. So we left school and headed out for ice cream. It was nice to have an hour of just Ben time. We drove down to the duck ponds and sat on the rocks as we ate our ice cream and searched for fish and turtles.
I know if kids have a fever they aren't allowed to return to school within 24hrs. I'm not sure of the rules if they are sent home b/c the look sick - if its ok to send them to school the next day - even if the 'rash' is still around, so Ben went to school.
(The best we can figure is MAYBE it's Fifth disease - which is no more than a fever/cold and when the rash appears it's no longer contagious).

This is Cloudys 'no no' face - I get this face a LOT

But it's this one that melts me
