By this afternoon Callum was covered in spots - he has the chicken pox!
I was actually out this afternoon when the spots made their appearance - Daddy was in charge. The story goes that Graham thought Cal was upstairs playing with Rhys, Rhys thought that Cal was downstairs with Daddy and when the confusion came to light there ensued a small panic (apparently Graham was imagining the headlines; Toddler found miles from home, father did not realise he was missing!!) until a very spotty Callum was discovered asleep on his Mammy and Daddys bed ....
.... I dont know, i cant even go out for a few hours without a crisis occuring!
It is about time Cal caught it really. This is the third batch of chicken pox to do the rounds since last September and i couldnt believe that he had not already caught it. I did try to put calamine lotion on him before bedtime but to be honest it would have been easier just to dip him in a bath full as the spots are everywhere. He even has one inside his ear which actually is the only one he is bothering about. He hasnt been scratching or complaining (and apart from sneaking off for a nap) he has been just like his usual self. I guess this means that he is not feeling too bad.
The only question that now remains is when is Rhys going to come out in spots?!
