Now what is it?
I am sick of crèche-itis. Not that Little Man has actually come down with something right now. He’s actually doing well this week. But there are notices up in the crèche warning us to be on the look out for hand, foot, and mouth virus, and for chicken pox, both of which are doing the rounds there at the moment. It’s always something. So now, I’m like a woman on a mission. Is that just a teething rash from all the dribbling, or is it the beginnings of a contagious blister?! In my mind, it’s not a case of if he gets one of these viruses, but when he gets them. At least that’s what my experience with crèche-itis has been so far!
I keep reminding myself of our GP’s advice the last time I had Little Man in for a check-up. He told me that he’s going to get sick while his immune system is building up, but that after a while, his immune system will be stronger, and he’ll get sick less and less. And I understand that, I really do. But it’s hard. So excuse me for a minute while I…aaaaarrrgggghhhhh!
That’s better. Just needed to get that out of my system.
Just because Little Man was sick for the long week at Halloween, sick for Christmas, sick for my brother and his wife’s visit home…that’s no reason to think he’ll be sick for Easter right? Right?
