Freebie Friday – Delish [Pixel Scrapper February Blog Train]

January has swept right past me in a whirl of heat, caffeine, and chicken pox. 3 kids, four weeks, and so, so many spots.

My oldest bought it home from primary school, just in time for the new year! He was first, followed by the youngest two almost exactly fourteen days later.

Thanks to scheduled shots when they were toddlers, Mr 7 and Mr 5 had approximately 25 spots between them. No fevers, a bit of grumpiness the day before the spots appeared, and then some itching – and it was over almost before it began.

The baby, however – my 10 month old, too young to be vaccinated – was hit with it like a freight train. It was two weeks of torture for my little man. He’s now recovered like a little trooper and all we have as reminder of his wretched experience with varicella are the rapidly fading pock marks on his tiny little body.

On the up side, school’s back in session – THANK EFFING GOODNESS.

Luckily I had this month’s blog train contribution all prepared for February (unlike my extreme lack of preparing for January, oops). A bit of a hodge podge of bright colours and sweet things. Don’t forget to check out the forum for more delish goodies.

Happy scrapping!

  1. Thank you for your gift. My son had chicken pox as a senior in high school. They didn’t have vacinations for chicken pox then. He was sick like your baby. Definitely not fun!

  2. Chicken pox sucks. They didn’t have a shot for it when I was a baby, and my parents had us play with every kid who had it every time it was going around, but I never caught it….until I was 20 and my 1-yr-old brought it home from daycare and I caught it from him. It was MISERABLE, and I came down with it literally on my birthday, too. 🙁

    Glad to hear everyone’s on the mend.

  3. Thanks, Trish, for your lovely gift. It sounds like your January was really crazy. Praying that February finds you and yours healthy and happy!

  4. Oh my, a hectic time with sick babies and you still contributed. Thank you for that. My son at age 12 months had a huge deep pox mark after his bout from his siblings. Totally went away so be encouraged!

  5. Thank-you for your faithfulness in contributing to the BT in the midst of all your chaos. Chicken pox sucks – is right!- but for you the caregiver also. So hard to watch a little one like that with them.
    Hope the rest of your year is filled with light, love & Joy.
    Blessed Be.
