Reassure me…

Dd developed chicken pox on 17 June, so would have been at her most infectious at the start of that week (2 weeks ago). Ds is still not showing any signs of it, and we’re meant to be going on holiday on Monday. What, do you think, are the chances of him escaping? Is there anyone out there with a sibling who didn’t catch it?

I'm deluding myself, aren't I? He's obviously going to get it. I can cope with disappointment, if we have to cancel the holiday then so be it, but it’s the uncertainty that is driving me crazy…

i have looked after families where the 3 children all got it alone.

if he has a grizzly day or 2 then that could be a sign they are going to pop out.

Are you flying?
