the chicken pox, we haz them.

who gets chicken pox anymore? i mean really? i thought we had listed that up there with the measles and the plague long ago. no one we even know has them, sure...it could have been the seventeen carts stella has licked already this week or when she was again drinking the water at the spray park. sure.

well, however it happened we have them and we're itchy. (ok, really just stella has them but i itch for her). we already have a pox party planned; i guess summer vacation is prime time to get your kids the chicken pox. stella promises to share cups, lick pacis, and snuggle for days. stella is the first kiddo i have opted out of the vaccine; which doesn't prevent just lessens the outbreak. either way i am sure the vaccine is why the pox are more rare these days.

lucky girl doesn't seem to have a fever or need antibiotics and our pediatrician promises she will be cleared up in time for the wedding. phew. so, we're home today studying the muscles for my final today and tomorrow and fitting in as many oatmeal baths as we can. wish us luck!

Poor Stella! I hope it passes quickly for her.

I am positive G hasn't been vaxed (hasn't had shots since 12 months) but I can't even remember if we decided to get that one for Michael...

Chicken Pox are a right of passage. 

Let me go find my old pic of them.

Oh no...but at least she's having it early. She won't even remember them once she goes to school.

poor baby. I bet it will be real mild. I had them bad, and in highschool no less. poor me! ; )

Poor baby!!  Hope she feels better soon!

Poor Stella! I'm itching just looking at those pictures! And I'm thinking maybe Ellie did get it from her, but really mild because of the vaccine! That would make only once in my life I feel good about giving her a vaccine! Ha!
