All Clear

Looks like we dodged the chicken pox (or "picky pox," as Nani has been calling them despite -- or because of? -- 30+ years of experience as a nurse and a mother). Today is day 21 of our watch, and no sign of lesions. Hopefully, the picky pox will come back again next year. I was glad not to have Alex get them this young.

No, they are called "chicken pops"!

Prehaps we should rename them the picky pops????

Drat. Wish I'd known. I would have run over with my daughter to expose her. I'd be happy to have her get the chicken pox while still breastfeeding.

Funny you say that Joni, you and everyone else! I had several people looking for a chicken pox party when I told them about the possibility (thankfully, even the mommies at day care were thrilled at the thought of getting it over with!). I promise you if he ever gets them, you'll be amongst the first to know!
