More germs

hand-wipesUse Those “wipies”?

The first time I met one of my best friends, Siobhan, at the playground, we discovered that our girls were the same age, and also had the same middle name! Siobhan offered to share snacks — but only after we cleaned our hands with the “wipies” she offered.

Surely you know someone like this – the parent who’s more than concerned about germs…I’ve often teased Siobhan about that afternoon. But guess what? Siobhan and her daughter have never missed a Valentine’s Day party. My daughter and I have.

For two Februarys in a row, we’ve been huddled under blankets, feverish.

I looked at M and said, “You’re my Valentine!” She made a face – her friends were exchanging Valentine’s Day cards and she was at home with the flu.

Last February, however, M was there for her second grade Valentine’s Day party. What was the secret? No, we hadn’t gotten our flu shots. It was my neurotic friend’s secret: hand washing.
