Adverse Reaction

We have the chicken pox.  Just a small case, a "side effect" of the vaccine (and believe me, I'm still in favor of the vaccine, since I had a horrible case of chicken pox on my thirteenth birthday and it totally ruined my sleepover, not to mention the next three weeks of my life), but enough to make Willow a little unhappy and her mommy much more unhappy.

We are dealing with it as best we may, with cookies for breakfast,* lots of snuggling, and tutus.

I think the tutus help me most of all.

*Not my idea.  Thanks, Daddy.

I can't believe you outed me for my bad parenting skills, Willow!

aww, poor baby. I'm all for the vaccine too. I never got mine and I got the chicken pox at 23. It was the most miserable week of my life. With the vaccine, she just has to get booster shots as she grows up. hmmm, cookies for breakfast ( shhh, I totally approve)

What was Daddy's idea? The tutu or the cookies? Anyway, she sounds like she's going to be just like her mommy. Always entertaining.
