not a patient patient

My son is quite possibly the worst patient ever.

He’s been sick since Friday, and each day he gets a little better, but each day he also gets a lot whinier. He’s definitely not a “patient” patient – not even close. There are temper tantrums when he needs to take his medicine, or when he coughs too much, or when his throat is sore. My own patience wore out today, when I told him I didn’t care if he was sick / bored / tired of being at home, I had HAD it, and I would ground him if his bad behavior continued. The threat of being sick and without access to the TV, computer, or Playstation seems to have worked for now, but believe me, I am counting the minutes until his return to school. (Looks like he’ll be going back Wednesday!)
