Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

Good Grief!


My Hero had shingles over Christmas.

Guess who has chicken pox?  And yes, she was immunized.

Since I’m on the subject, I’ll tell you what Kid 4’s new nickname is going to be.

Meet Ms. In Charge!  She’s happiest when she’s running the world.  I can give her a list and she just goes at it.  She’s being homeschooled this year, mostly because she and I needed a year with just the two of us.  It’s not easy being the fourth of five kids.  I can’t wait to see how God is going to use her!

I’m going to go make a cake and clean up my disaster of a kitchen.  And then I’m going to swatch two new yarns.  My Hero is gone tonight so the TV will remain off!!!  Silence!

  1. Chicken pox can be so nasty!! Glad to see Ms. I.C. looking so happy, regardless!

    Funny, my hubby took our older son to scouts tonight, and the silence (without the TV) was so wonderful! :o)

  2. Here’s to a speedy recovery for Ms. In Charge. The hat she’s wearing is gorgeous.

  3. There is a connection between chicken pox and shingles. Hope she gets well soon

    And I know what you mean about the silence. Or maybe just to watch the news on one channel. 🙂

  4. Either that’s an old picture of her, or she is largely unfazed by the Chicken Pox! (I think I remember the hat…it’s very cute. I want one.) Hope she doesn’t feel too bad. itch, itch, itch…

  5. There is an incorrect assumption that the chicken pox immunization keeps children from getting the chicken pox. Every child I’ve known closely who has had the immunization has gotten the chicken pox—quite a few were much worse than my un-immunized children. Hope she makes a quick and relatively comfortable recovery!

  6. Does that mean that several Texans will also have chicken pox?
