I was never a fan of the indoor play areas. Before I had a child I swore I would never ever take my kid to that germ fest. But here I am today having birthday parties and meeting playgroups at this germ fest.
I rang in New Year’s Eve with a sick baby, well she’s two but I can’t say toddler because that means I have to admit she’s growing up and I’m just not ready. Anyway, come to find out she had a double ear infection. A few days before that she had played at one of the indoor playgrounds in our area but I didn’t think anything of it. Last Friday daddy took Buggy again and Sunday night my little one had a fever. That was two for two, no coincidence there. And guess who is now sick! I’m sneezing so much I’m practically peeing myself from the force, headache, coughing blah blah blah and the only reason I’m posting is because it’s been almost a week since my last post. I’m one to never get sick until now. We are lucky that Buggy was only really sick once her first year.
I really hate her going to those places but I can’t keep her locked up in the houses and I can only imagine how it will be when she goes to daycare – from what I hear anyway. I try and make sure that we sanitize when we are done playing.
Alright, I can’t take it any more, I need to sleep but tell me, have you noticed your kiddos getting sick after playing at the germ fest?
