Being Proactive

As a means of being proactive I'm trying to determine the next ailment that we will be dealing with. I mean it pays off to be proactive instead of reactive so I'm trying to see if I can determine what's coming next. Maybe as a means to prepare for it as best as I can. I'm also hoping to see if maybe using reverse psychology on our rash (ha ha get it) of illnesses might work. So if I WANT to get sick and HOPE the kids get something else, maybe the illness next in line will say to itself "Awww that's not fun, they want me, it's so much more fun to attack the unsuspecting" and then spare us its wrath.

I have come up with a few "normal" illnesses that we have yet to have. And apparently being vaccinated against one of them doesn't really matter since Little Man was vaccinated against rotavirus and he got it the worst!

Feel free to cast your vote via comment as to which one will be next! These are in no particular order.

  1. Appendicitis
  2. Pink eye
  3. Severe allergic reaction to a scorpion sting
  4. Chicken Pox
  5. Measles
  6. Hand, Foot and Mouth
  7. Some type of worm
  8. Scabies
  9. Danielle's Mental Breakdown
My vote goes with Pink eye and Danielle's Mental Breakdown.

So we'll see. Stayed tuned to hear if my reverse psychology worked or not. And if not, what the ailment we are lucky enough to have.

Well since some are too severe to even think of I am going to go with pink eye or the dreaded hfm that seems to be rampant in day cares at times. Though I really want none of them to visit you.

HFM bites. While it would be entertaining to watch Danielle's mental breakdown :), I'll vote for pink eye. Or Roseola. Have they had that yet?

We had HFM right after Little Man was born so we've had that one already. They haven't had either one of your votes yet...WOOHOO!

I vote for none of them esp. your mental breakdown which I dont think would be fun to watch at all. You guys will be illness free at least for the time being....:)
