Happy Monday! The fact that this post exists means that we survived our first full week of chickenpox. It has been LONG and honestly, I’m amazed I found time to even schedule this post. Daisy showed signs of chicken pox on Saturday, 9 days ago, and now it is full swing. This weeks living arrows 13/52 post is now live!
As you can see Daisy has quite a few spots, but definitely less severe than some of the cases I have seen shared by friends. I’m so thankful for that.
Our whole week has been spent at home, relaxing, and trying to spend time together without going stir crazy. I feel really fortunate that I work from home, and have been able to juggle my workaround Daisy for the past week. I’m aware that this is a real privilege that lots of parents would love to have, an I have reminded myself of this frequently over the past few days. It HAS been tough, parenting, often by myself while Tom is working night shifts, but we’ve made it through over a week now. I’ve been managing to keep my head above water with work, just about, but I’m looking forward to a nice bit of childcare for Daisy sometime soon. Hopefully this week!
Just have to give a little mention to the main product that we’ve been using a lot this week. *Poxclin was recommended to me by lots of friends and it is absolutely fantastic. This is a mousse that is designed to cool and soothe chickenpox and this has helped Daisy stop scratching so much! I think the one pot should last us just about enough time until we are at the end of the chickenpox. Also, I think there might be a couple of little areas that are going to scar, so I’m going to order some *Bio Oil to hopefully help the appearance of these.
