I dont vaccinate, my kids are 2 and 3, and I kind of hope they get chicken pox before they are old enoughto really remember it.

You want to try to keep a 2 and 3 year old from scratching and causing scarring? 


Good luck with that.  As long as they have it before they're 12, it won't become a serious issue.  I remember having chicken pox and I promise you I'm not the least bit traumatized by the experience.

Now that people get vaccinated against it it's more unlikely than ever that your kids will get it at young ages. Haven't heard of a case around here for 15 years or so.

My kids had chicken pox, so did my husband.
Dh went to the hospital but our kids we're fine.
A bit of a fever and couple days later it was done.

I was three when I had it, and only remember bits and pieces of it.

I know a few kids who have it currently, but they dont live here.

 I never got it. Even when I was around my siblings and friends who got it. I later got the vaccination for it(had to for my job).

if my kids had it like me i wouldnt wish it on anyone.. high fever and my body shut down.. i had pox on top of pox inside my eyelids, in my mouth... its so hard to tell because everyone reacts differently. I  vaccinated mine because my reaction was horrible. Hopefully your kids have amild reaction like many.

Don't wish sickness on your children please. Be thankful they are healthy.
