We got the pox and we're happy to share!

Ds1 started breaking out last night, so I think we have a few days ahead of us here. Anyone want to come by on Friday?

I'm in northern Burlington Co. near Trenton/Princeton and very close to all the highways to it's an easy drive from just about everywhere. PM me if you want to come!

Oh, crap. My twins need pox, and it would have been great to do it now while I'm working less. I guess it's too late now, isn't it? (It's Sunday afternoon.)

Well, Ds1 is all crusted over now, but it was a good case of the pox. Ds2 has NOT come down with it yet, so I imagine that I will be back here in a week or so offering up another party.

Kassie - I'm easily gotten to by train - only a few blocks from the light rail. My Dh commutes into NYC everyday, so it is very doable.

I'd love to come when your DS2 gets it, but I just had my titers done and I'm not immune. I'm debating whether I should get the vac for myself so I can get my son exposed soon.

Thanks for offering up the pox, either way. :-)

Mom, , to DS(10), , , due November 3, 2014, and 4 's: 4/01, 7/01, 9/01, and 12/13. DP to .

Oh, I wish! My son is too little for chicken pox just yet, (he's almost 1) but I hope in a few years we can find a Pox Party to attend.

Well... We have it again.

DS2 started breaking out yesterday and now he's crazy spotted. BUT I am not at home for the holidays and I can't really figure how I could host a party. I will be home the day after Christmas, and it possible that he'll still be contagious, but I can't promise anything... I'll keep you updated.

Ooh, just back in the area after being away for a month. I've gotta keep up with this site and hopefully will be able to get in touch with you after christmas. I think it may be time for my boys to get the pox....

Happy holidays.

Ooh, I was actually just checking the board to see if anyone had success from our Pox Party! Glad it worked for you!

Ooh just read this. But given the new baby on the way, I think a titer is necessary for me (or a call to my mom) and then hope to find a pox party during the second half of the PG.
