Nah, I'm not really sorry. And my opinions on the Hygiene Hypothesis remain the same. But I do have to report in:
MY KID GOT SICK.
She has spent one day in preschool in her entire life, and she is now sick. Sneezing and stuffy. Awesome.
But I don't believe it's because she's a Bubble Kid. Since after all, even non-Bubble-Kids like Dar's get sick their first day, which has been a recent topic of discussion. :(
I guess it's just as a person who does not have OCD recently wrote: "Schools are a cesspool of germ, disease and horror. And that's just the staff room. Throw kids into the mix and you might as well just wrap yourself up in a bubble and stay home."
But fuck, man. Really? The first day? Now I know just how Darlena felt, except hers was Times Two.
(Also; I'm sure, positively sure, that no one out there is thinking, "Serves her right for being such a germ-freak," right? Right? Because it's my kid who's suffering. So this doesn't "serve anyone right." But I'm sure none of you would be so cruel as to think that.)
So now all I can do is pray to the Patron Saint of Five Month Olds and ask for mercy that Naomi not get sick. :/
