Yesterday morning I informed the boys that we likely weren’t exposed to chicken pox in a recent attempt to be. I had just found out that our little friend still hadn’t broken out in spots. Zach surprised me by groaning, “Awwww….” I said, “What? Are you really disappointed?” He said he’d rather get it than be vaccinated, then he said, “Couldn’t you put an ad on Kijiji? ‘Wanted: Chicken Pox’.” I laughed and he said, “You never know. It’s worth a try.”
I found out later in the evening that our friend did seem to have the early signs of pox so it is possible they contracted it. However, it was several days before that they all played together so I’m thinking the chances are slim. Another thing I’ve thought of since then is that if they all got it one-be-one, spread out in two week intervals, that could put us into newborn baby time which wouldn’t be so great.
