Aaaaah! Chicken Pox!

Poor little PT has come down with them. They don't actually look that bad yet, but he is pretty uncomfortable, and I know the other kids will get them soon. Bummer. 
It's kind of strange to think that just one generation ago Chicken Pox were very normal. Everyone got them; now it is an oddity. I'm not against vaccines; we get most of them for our kids, but not all of them. Chicken Pox is something we decided to let our kids get naturally, and now they have. If I could go back I'm not sure I would choose the same, I hate seeing my kiddos in pain, but I still feel strongly about all the reasons behind our decision, so I guess I probably would do it again. I'm hoping in three weeks it will all be behind us, the kids will have their natural immunities, and we will be glad to have it over and done. We will see... I will keep you posted.

  1. Good for you lady. Stay strong and love on those babies! This is just an excuse to spend all your time with them and NOT on all those unimportant things like cleaning ;)
