the snot monster

Ugh. We've just dealt with the chicken pox - nearly all the spotty scabs have fallen off - and now L has a cold. Which kind of makes me a bit angry. Why?

Well, we went to playgroup for the first time last Wednesday and it was so much fun. There were more babies there than I expected, although a majority of them are a lot younger than L. All the Mums seemed nice too and I was really looking forward to going back there this week.
None of the babies there appeared to be sick little snot monsters. L started sneezing and had a snuffly/runny nose on Sunday. I doubt she picked it up from there.

I know little ones get sick and in a way it is good for their immune system to be exposed to germs, but I do not like it when they are intentionally brought into my own home.
G came for his visit on Saturday. Now, he spends a lot of time around at least 6 kids - one of them who I know always seems to have a cold (his son). I know this because every weekend when he came to stay with us, he either had a bad cough or a very snotty nose and I caught his germs twice while pregnant with L, which was not fun. I definitely do not want to get that sick during this pregnancy while also having to care for L at the same time.

If he came over knowing that he had been around sick children and could potentially pass it on to L, I will not be a happy Mumma! I find that highly inconsiderate.

Sounds like L has just woken up, so off I go to spend the day cleaning up snot. At least she is a good girl and doesn't mind us wiping her nose. She even attempts to do it herself - with a tissue!
