Re: Should I try and get my kids chicken pox?
Yeah, I just started thinking about how awful I would feel if they got really super sick. When I was a kid, my neighbors got chicken pox and their middle child was around 2 (I can't remember exactly, since I was probably 7 or 8). But I'm pretty sure she got meningitis IIRC, and she was really messed up for a while. In fact, I think she had some permanent damage and some learning disabilities from it. Scary. I know that it's rare for something like that to happen, but you never know.
