Thank you so much, Carolyn and family! It was such a nice time, and we really appreciate your hospitality and your dear son's happy willingness to share germs!

We hope he continues to feel as well as possible, and you do too!
Thanks again, Carolyn

hi,

just wondering -- does anyone who visited Carolyn's home live farther up the river? We are still looking for a party or visit.

Thanks

Hello. I know the three mamas who were at Carolyn's when I was are all fairly local. But I imagine all of us will be willing to pass 'em on if we do get them, so hopefully there will be another pox on us in a fortnight or so. Stay tuned!

Carolyn, we hope your little one is feeling as well as he can, and you are too! Thanks again!

Oh no! Saturday and I can't believe I missed this! My youngest son, age 4 needs to catch the pox!

otgirl, do you think you are still contagious? If so for how long? If anyone here catches the pox, will you PLEASE let us know?

I'll be checking this thread...

I'm up in Berkshire County, maybe that's closer to you? We drove down to Carolyn. I'll let you know in a couple weeks if we were successful.

Well, crap I'd have been all over this, but I was subbed to the other thread, and didn't know you'd posted a new one. I just figured it didn't take when you went to visit veganf.

Oh well. Maybe next year.

Don't despair, NY mommas! (And NJ farmland). Several of us brought our tots to OTgirls' house. So hopefully there will be another round in a fortnight or so.

It's day 9 of exposure here in Cold Spring, NY, and we have a runny nose. Stay tuned.

Alas, we may not be able to host folks until Monday even if she has pox tomorrow. Still, I thought some warning might be appreciated.

If there's anything to report I'll post it here. Have a great weekend everyone, and Happy Mamas Day!!!

yes, let's please keep this thread going particularly if anyone makes it to play with beth & charlie...looks like me and beth's (well really wren and charlie's, lol) schedules too hard to coordinate with the commute up there.

Ugh, the girls and I have some sort of awful flu right now so I don't want to expose them to anything else (or bring their germs around anyone else either!!)...the next batch of kids to come down the pox, please post here! Hopefully we can catch it on the next round.
