The only day off from school
This comment is in response to Is it okay for kids to take a 'sick day'? on Facebook.
My child is still small but I will only let her stay home if she is really sick and at this stage, on her birthday. I put leave in for that day and then we go do something special with the money other parents use to supply the class with party stuff. She gets her birthday party on the weekend but that special day is ours. But never just because she feels like it.
