If I could use one word to describe this week, it would be ‘spotty’. Chicken pox has graced us with its presence again – both Otto and Rufus. I noticed a few spots on Otto’s leg on Tuesday night, but didn’t think too much of it, but by Wednesday morning it was obvious. We were at Center Parcs for the week, and thankfully Ru managed to go swimming before we realised. I would definitely recommend 3+ as the best age for chicken pox, and big thanks to Trolls for providing a much needed distraction.
R: Rufus has been really brilliant, although he won’t take Calpol or let us put cream on, and says that he doesn’t like looking at them, so he can’t go in the shower. He’s a funny fish. He said that his favourite part of Center Parcs was “All of it”, which I loved.
O: Otto has really struggled with the pox. He’s definitely had it the worst – all in his scalp, ears and around his mouth. The only way that we’ve been able to get him to sleep during the night is by taking him on walks in his buggy. Mostly done around 2am by Jared, because I’m not good in the dark. He has been so uncomfortable, and we are shattered, but the worst is definitely over.
Oh mo. Hope you’re all better soon and that you were still able to enjoy your holiday despite the pox #LivingArrows
Thank you! All gone now – wahoo! x
What lovely photos. I particularly love the one of Rufus by the tree, it’s very atmospheric.
Poor mites, both having chicken pox. At least it’s over and done with now. I’m not looking forward to whevever Isla gets them. She has conjunctivitis at the moment, and that’s bad enough!
Thank you so much! Conjunctivitis is no fun at all. I hope she has made a full recovery xx
Oh bless them both – it’s doing the rounds at the moment isn’t it? We had it with J last summer and thankfully got away very lightly #LivingArrows
I really think it is! I’ve heard so many people talk about their children having them xx
Gorgeous photos, I am sorry you had to deal with the pox when you were away, we still haven’t had them and I am dreading it to be honest x
Thank you! I think it was better that we were away – plenty of distractions and family around to help! 🙂 Xx
Oh gosh, we haven’t had chicken pox here and I am dreading it – although I’m glad we’ve got through the baby/toddler years without having it. Poor O! I hope they are all getting better now x
Older is definitely better! 🙂 X
