Annoyances! I need to use this post to vent. There is a kid in Brandon's preschool class who has the chicken pox. Here's the annoying part. His family doesn't believe in immunizations, so they sent him over to his cousins to "catch" the pox. THEN, they sent him to school. Can you believe that! WHO in the world would purposely catch the pox and then try infect everyone else in the world? I remember moms doing that when I was a kid, but we were all quarantined for 2 weeks. You don't just send them out back to regular life!
Here's the kicker. In Brandon's class, there are 3 other kids who aren't immunized, and 2 of their moms have infants at home. There are also 4 pregnant women, and us, with an infant at home. Chicken pox can be fatal if contracted in the first week of life. Great. Brandon is immunized (in fact has been twice!) but the Dr. said he can still be a carrier and bring it home. So, now he can't touch the baby for 2 weeks, or go to school for 2 weeks. I am bugged.
I almost want to call the woman and yell at her! (Unfortunately she is a good friend of mine's sister!) Do you all think I am an emotional mess making a big deal out of nothing (We all have had the post partum hormones!), or do you side with me?
