Chicken Pox

Today I had a fever
and I didn't feel so good.
Daddy took me to the doctor
to get me better if he could.

The doctor looked at me and said,
"It's only Chicken Pox."
How come there's such a fancy name
for plain ol' itchin' dots?

Adorable, CJ...I think this one should be handed out to all students, to take home, at the beginning of the school year!

My daughters had them twice, CJ; was the pinkest [calomine] Elementary School year, we ever spent.. the neighborhood pharmacist lady actually let me run a tab! It's horrible to go through as the parent, too. It hurts to see them so miserable. Now they have gone through it themselves,as mothers...and the beat goes on!

Great job!
Love, Rhonda

Worst illness, and they leave ugly scars if scratched. Sweets work wonders and as Lena said: gloves provided it's not too hot. Victor

Ah, poor kid. Chicken pox...itchy, itchy, itchy. Thing to remember is try to resist scratching...will leave ugly marks. Where cotton gloves...But most of all remember, this too will pass!

God Bless

Oh but it can get humiliating when they are on the eyelids, the mouth and private parts.
Rub a dub dub...
chicken's in the tub,
bath of oatmeal to conceal,
the itch and scratch
of scabs that peel.
Bless this pen becaus it isn't a story tale bu t alltoo true for wee too.

I know the answer...I know the answer. It's so the doctor can charge seventy five dollars a visit. Who's going to pay that much for itchin' dots? Sweet as always CJ. Grasshopper bows to the Master.
