As a general rule, I don't worry about getting sick or my kids getting sick. I don't get a flu shot and I don't make my kids either. I believe that it is important to let our bodies fight these incidental things. I did get them their childhood vaccines. I even got them the chicken pox vaccine even though it is completely ridiculous and now they will need a booster every ten years. BTW, I only got them that one, because my daycare provider would not take them anymore if they didn't have it and I was too exhausted to try to find a new daycare.
That being said, I am a tad bit concerned about the swine flu. Our Medical Director sent out an email on how to protect yourself and your family. I can't get my kids to wash their hands after they use the bathroom, how can I get them to wash their hands regularly through the day.
I don't know anyone who went to Mexico on spring break, but I don't know all my kids classmates. I am going on a field trip with 90 2nd graders tomorrow and I may take my anti-bacterial wash.
Do you feel a chill? Oink Oink
