Mom Knows Best

Yesterday I went to school -
The weather was super-duper cool.

Shorts are not November clothes...
Mom was right, I suppose.

This morning I woke up sleepy.
I was headachey and weepy.

Then I missed the bus,
Had a tantrum, made a fuss.

Mom felt my forehead -
With a worried look she said,

"You feel extremely warm,
Plus today there's a storm."

"You need to stay home and sleep -
Lie still now, don't make a peep."

So I did what Mom said.
I slept all day in my bed.

And now I feel so much better.
Tomorrow I'm wearing a sweater!
