This past Thursday, Damon went to bed unusually early. I thought nothing of it since we had been really busy all week. Friday morning, he got up and went to school and everything was fine. He even came home, did his homework and went to his after school karate club. After changing his clothes and coming to the table for dinner, he came up to me and said, "Mom, I have red spots on my arm." I looked at the one or two spots and was not too concerned. He then showed me the spots on the side of his face. It started to look a little bit like the chicken pox. I lifted up his shirt and sure enough, my Damon was covered in red spots. I started to laugh a little and told him that he has the chicken pox. So, now we are trying to infect the other boys so that we can get them over with. I discovered that my neice, Crystal, had shingles a couple weeks ago at my other neice's birthday party. So, if anyone else would like to have Damon give them a hug, feel free to stop by. He will only be contagiuos for a few more days. Then, hopefully the other boys will have them soon too. I will keep you posted. Damon was obviously not happy about taking pictures. The only thing that he is happy about is that he gets to miss school for at least a week.
