Chicken Pox, really?

Today is a short day for the kids. For those at our nice christian grade school is an early release day. This means that Sydney and Graham will be out of school at 11:00 AM. For those at our Jewish school (namely Ainsley) she will be participating in Rosh Hashanah. Bet you did not know that about her. Yep, we Dungan's are full of surprises - and apparently a little religiously conflicted. For those in the know - Shana Tova (Happy New Year).

Some days are just good for short stories. Today is one such day. Yesterday morning Graham came running into the bathroom crying. I was in the shower and Lynley was putting on her make up (not that she needs any to be beautiful - yes, sucking up for the weekend) Graham was truly distraught. Mom I am getting chicken pox. Lynley gave him a once over. "No buddy, you are fine. You don't have any chicken pox."

"But mommy I touched one of the chicken feathers in your pillow and Sydney said it will give me the chicken pox."

I laughed as quietly as I could in the shower. Chicken Pox from a down pillow. How ridiculous! Everyone knows you can't get chicken pox from a down pillow.

You get goose pox!

Yep, my purpii.
