Well crap.

Typhoid Mary
This is definitely a case of good news/bad news.

The good news is...the kids FINALLY managed to catch Chicken Pox. After multiple exposures over the last few years, Elli has spontaneously developed it. Ike is already feeling crappy and itching...so I suspect it will whip through here like wildfire. Joe and I have had it as kids. I had such a light case as a child that when Ike was a baby, I got myself checked for antibodies, which eventually came back positive...so I have the immunity. Though I am likely to be prone to a small flare.

The bad news.
I'm supposed to start my student teaching internship on Tuesday. I've called my mentor and asked about the School's policy regarding my attending and she's going to get back to me. Dang it. It's never a good time for children to get sick, but something as serious as this?? Right before I start something seriously important? Oh well. Life is what happens while we make plans. It'll be alright.

I caught it at 13, so so bad.

I hope they are feeling better quickly!

Uh...if you've been exposed to chicken pox, they may not WANT you to start your internship right away.

I'm not going in. As long as the kids have active Chicken Pox...I can't go to school.
