I was expecting this to arrive about 9 days ago.
I was thinking I had failed to achieve my goals.
However I got a positive result on the anticipated outcome of an event that occured 20 days ago.
Adri broke with chicken pox tonight!!! (What?? Did you think I was going to say I was having another baby?? gotcha!!)

We are, obviously, in the 1% of cases that take more than 14 days from exposure to break out in spots. 20 days ago I hosted a chicken pox party. A little girl in our home school group had the chicken pox and we invited her over for a playdate. It was a succes!!

I feel a *little* bad that tomorrow is Adri’s 9th birthday. But I’m SO THANKFUL that we are going to get this very necessary milestone over with!

And now begins the ardurous task of oatmeal baths, calamine lotion, and benadryl. I’ll be so glad when it’s all over with and so happy that my kids will have a natural, and lifetime immunity against chicken pox. The vaccine is worthless (hardly protects anyone!) and uses tissue from aborted babies. We have issues with that. As one should!

And before you all get in a tizzy — the child that gave us chicken pox had been vaccinated against CP. Her dad’s a doctor. 🙂
