Good Morning and Happy Monday to all! Fall has finally arrived here in Iowa and it’s so refreshing to wake up to the brisk cool air! I’m a hoodie girl and love this time of year!
My 17 year old finally returned to school today after being out for a week with the chicken pox. Yes you read that correctly he had the pox in spite of receiving the immunization as a baby. This is my child who refuses to use public restrooms because he thinks they are full of germs and diseases that you catch just by walking into them. He also of course thinks bathes are like brewing in a pool of your own filth. So last week was very long for us both and oatmeal baths were out of the question! I am a picker and love to pop zits so had to resist holding him down (which would be impossible anyhow being he is bigger than me already) and popping them or playing connect the dots and I spy as they literally appeared in front of my eyes. Poor kid told me he even had them on his ‘ball sack’ which was defined too much information for a mother to hear! Anyhow life is finally getting back to a sense of normal and I am a happy camper once again! Has anyone else had their children get the pox in spite of the vaccination?
