or maybe from the mouths, noses, hands and eyes of babes…
Do all of you know what kindergarten really is? It’s some kind of test lab for breeding colds, flus and other assorted cruds. Since K started full day kindergarten in January she has been sick, I think, 4 times. Most of those were little one day home things where she needed the rest and I didn’t want her snot faucet to run on the other children… once she missed 3 days of school with a high fever. For craps sake she missed school Friday because her nose was so runny she had a stomach ache.
No, I’m not joking.
But those germs… they don’t just effect her… Even though we wash hands constantly, clean faces, all bathe and disinfect things Mr. Kaos and I have each been sick 3 or 4 times. Including now.
Why! Why did no one warn us that kindergarten was somehow a more effective breeding ground for germs than even preschool?
Why! Why do we keep catching these creepy cruds time and time again?
But I am not posting this to whine and complain. I am posting it as a warning to any of you parents that have not yet undergone the rigors of kindergarten…
You still have time.
It’s not too late.
Buy your kid a plastic bubble.
