We Want the Pox!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey!  I have a 5 year old who needs the chicken pox.  My older 2 boys had it when I was pregnant but I want him to get it while he's young.  We're in Aurora, Colorado.  I'd love to go to a party close by, but I've heard that you can mail a used lollipop to us and spread it that way.  Anyone know someone with the pox??

Oh, the pox. Good luck finding it. We had to deal with it 2 years ago when it showed up at our preschool, it really rocked my world and turned things upside down for a week or two. It's not pleasant, though I guess neccesary if you are skipping the vax, which we are...      But it SUCKED! :)  my little boy had bright red cheeks for months afterwards from it...   and now some scars...  I still remember comforting him at 2 am while he had fever hallucinations and sitting on the couch at 2 am watching curious george with him, as it seemed to calm him...     though I'm still looking for it for my other little one who didnt get it..    good luck..
