Mental. Health. Day.

I let Jane Anne stay home from school one day last week.  She wasn’t sick (or even “under the weather” as I might have told the attendance clerk), but she was tired and needed a break.  Don’t get me wrong, she loves school and rarely complains.  But there are just days she needs a break.  Needs time to do nothing on a schedule.  Needs to hang out with her sister.  We slept in, read in bed for a good bit of the morning, played Yatzee and Uno, pulled out a huge number of toys, dressed up, and just generally had fun.  It was a perfect day.

For those of you who are missing the other blog at janesmom.wordpress.com — you can jump over there to read about JA’s thoughts on the day.
