Email me if you are interested in exposing your child/ren to chicken pox. We live just outside Portland Maine. Tomorrow or sometime next week....my youngest hasn't sprouted yet so there is time!

They'll sprout 10-21 days after exposure so it won't affect their first days of school!

Man, I am so tempted to drive up. I probably won't, but if you were only a few hours closer, I definitely would.

We are for sure going to be there! I emailed you through the Mom-2-Mom loop!

I though the pox were around more in the spring, but we'll takem' any time.

I spent my life negotiating for a living, and now my 2 and 4 year old are closing the deals.  I now am a firm believer in Karma!

I was really hoping to go to the pox party but my youngest has a cold and I'm not ok with pox and a cold so please, a favor for those that go to the "party", and kids get the pox? Do you all mind updating the post so maybe by then my youngest is over his cold and we could come and get infected??

TIA!!!

Hi! We're in Portsmouth, NH and would like to get in on this, too, if/when the time is right.

Thank you!

Thanks for the update. My youngest stuffy nose just seemed to get worse so I'm hoping your kids take a little longer to break out...just a little longer.

i HATED those "little red bumps" when cas was a toddler. i think he had roseola like 3 times - at least! spike high fever followed by tons of spotting... but not a pox in sight. i was SO hopeful one time i actually called my cousin to tell her i may have contaminated her kid. false alarm, sadly.
