We have chicken pox in the house!! I have been dreading this moment since I heard that a few children in her class were off sick with it.
Munchkin came home from school and was riding her bike quite happily. When I called her in to have something to eat she started whinging a bit, so I thought she was just playing up. She ate and then was immediately sick. Later when I was undressing her I noticed the spots on her chest. I rang a friend in a panic asking her if chicken pox starts off with just a few spots. She confirmed this so rang hubby to get some calamine lotion.
I had been hoping and praying that she doesn’t get it. Why the big deal you may ask? I know children get it all the time but the problem is I have never had it as a child. Everything I have read seems to suggest that it is worse for adults.
Only time will now tell if I catch it too 🙁
