Out of the Vox: Feigning sickness

Avel has been deemed fit by the Doctor to go back to school.
She has missed more than 10 days of school and has sort of become resistant to go back there.
Lately, we have been telling her that she is going back to school soon so that she has prepared mentally for that. At the same time, she has been cooking up quite a number of excuse in order not to go back to school. Just like today…

Me: “wake up baby, time to go school…”
Avel continues to sleep without waking up.
I have to pull her up from her sleep and forced her to change into her uniform as I was running late for work.
She put up a struggle and then kept crying, pleading with me she do not want to go back school. There and then, she said…

Avel: “See mummy, my hand pain pain….” pointing to her palms and indicate that there are still rashes…

Me: “arh..don’t give me this, Doctor has already said you are fit to go back to school, don’t cheat mummy…”

Avel sulked….

Heard from my hubby that after he dropped me off at the hospital, Avel tried to use the same tactic to him too…
How cheeky she is…
