Sick Days

The kids have colds on and off all through the winter.  It's just this time of year.  We all know that right?  Well, when my daughter had the flu a few weeks ago, she got to drink 7-up, which is completely unusual because she NEVER gets pop.  So, she is convinced that sick girls get pop, and everybody who drinks pop is sick.  

So, today, when I was the one not feeling well, she had to mimic me and how I was feeling.  She did this for only one reason - soda pop.  She was behaving really well, and being nice to her brother because she was convinced that somebody was sick, therefore, she should get pop.  

Kind of hard to convince the kid she only gets pop when SHE is sick.  Is it a bad thing she now wants to be sick, so she can get pop?
