Chicken Pox, that is. Actually Lily and I agree that it would be better off called Tapioca Pox because the blisters look more like a pearl of tapioca than they do chickpeas.
Lily is covered in the pox, even a few in her mouth and Leif has only exhibited one mark that looked like the pox so far. Either this is as bad as it will be for him or his is still coming.
Both kids are acting normally and not seeming ill but Lily complains of being itchy from time to time. As long as she keeps her mind off of it she’s good so we’ve been watching movies and doing crafts.
If anything, Lily’s sour about being introduced to the pox on purpose and without her knowing. We’d taken both kids to a Chicken Pox Brunch a little more than two weeks ago. It was last minute and we didn’t take the time to explain the reason behind our going.
She’s almost nine now and while I still would have wanted to expose her to the chicken pox, I wish I’d explained beforehand so she didn’t feel ambushed after the fact.
