Oh ladies I did not think you were being mean at all. You are stating your opinion which is what I wanted you to do. The great thing about these boards is you can get different opinions on things. I think that's great!

We made a decision rather easily last night. I did a little research and found out the incubation period (from exposure to when symptoms appear) is 10-20 days. We are going on vacation in about three weeks. I do not want Rosie sick when we are on vacation. So we are not going to intentionally expose her. Next time the opportunity presents itself we will decide then.

I know this has been a big topic on unplugged lately. There's so much info out there for and against vaccination. It's overwhelming.

However, I did get them again, a much more severe case in 1st grade. I know everyone is going to think I'm nuts because you only get the chicken pox once but honestly, I had them twice.
Not nuts! The same exact thing happened to me. I had them at about 2 years old, mild case then when I was in kindergarten I got them BAD! I had them in my mouth, up my nose, in my ears, in and all around my hoo-hoo. It was terrible. I can remember just laying on the floor naked, crying, covered in calamine lotion. Not fun for a 5 year old! Makes me shudder thinking about it now!
