[We are at the doctor.]
What shots am I getting today?
[The doctor looks at her a little strangely.] Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis in one shot, and then you need a Varicella booster – which is Chicken Pox.
Oh good! Mummy got Chicken Pox last spring. [Gives me a knowing glance, turns back to the doctor] You know, from the kids who didn’t get vaccinated at my Montessori.
Can you believe there were SIX families who didn’t vaccinate? SIX! It’s a good thing I’m getting a booster today – it will protect the old people who are sick and the babies who are small.
Oh, and Mummy. Apparently she gets chicken pox over and over.
