It only took four days. I knew it would happen. I just didn't think I would be taken down too. John, my 21 month old, started daycare. He hasn't exactly been a bubble boy but his exposure to germs has been severely limited. Aside from my parent's sterile home (my mother loves bleach), he is usually just home with us.

Well yesterday his nose started running and he was fussy. By last night MY throat was on fire. Who did this to us? Those kids all looked so healthy. A toddler has crippled my immune system via biological warfare.

I was informed by other parents. They also said that it is better to get his exposure to germs and immune system strengthened now and not wait for it to happen when he goes to school. I just didn't think my immune system would succumb. Maybe I need to enroll in daycare.
