The chickenpox have arrived!

It's Monday again! And it is far from a happy day in our household. Poor Vala Bug has the chickenpox. She went to bed Friday night absolutely fine but woke up on Saturday with a few spots spread out across her body. She was still well in herself and even said she liked her "chicks spots" as she called them. That attitude didn't last long.

Come Sunday, Vala was covered in spots. Some had already popped and were showing signs of crusting, some were completely full of clear fluid and quite big and then there were plenty of small pinkish/red spots just appearing. They're not itching yet but Vala has been quite lethargic and feeling very sorry for herself. Plenty tears have been shed and it's heartbreaking for us to see her this way. It's only a matter of time before Flynn starts breaking out in spots as well. But it's not only Flynn we have to keep an eye on now; Jordan doesn't know if he's had chickenpox before either. His mum doesn't even remember if he's had them. So we might have three sickies in the house with me nursing their spots with Calemine lotion soon.

I'm glad I had chickenpox as a kid now. At least I don't have to worry about myself.

Until next time,
Alli xo
