Mirror, mirror on the wall

... who is the most beautiful of all...


"Mom, why did you paint red spots on me during the night?"

The Big Miss has what's called windpox ("Windpocken") in German, waterpox ("vesirokko") in Finnish, and chickenpox in English. This morning, we had the realization that she won't be able to participate in her first ever dance recital this weekend. The one that she has been talking about and looking forward to for months.

I think those pox need a new name: meanpox.

So sorry about the recital! Meanpox indeed.

Stine said...

Oh nein! Die arme Tanzmaus! Da muss man sich wohl ein gutes Heimkino-Popcorn-Fe-ist-Bestimmer-Programm zum Trost ausdenken ;) Aber mal unter uns: lieber jetzt als im Erwachsenenalter. Das hatte ein Bekannter neulich und wenn man denkt, das ist als Kind schon kein Spaß, ist das der Horror! Also gute Besserung!

oh... poor poor fé.. that's really a very bad timing. but on the otherhand it is good to have it behind you, the chickenpox, or meanpox or what ever.. better than getting them later as a grown-up..

Kate said...

Oh no, poor Fé!

Hmm, I wonder if we should come visit you as everyone says it's easiest to have it as a (small) kid.

Isa said...

Yes, better now than later.. I just wish the timing would have been a little better. <oh well.

Kate, it's up to you...

poor Fé! :(

Ich hatte sie nie. Selbst du und dein Bruder konnten mich nicht anstecken. Aber dafür hattet ihr es an meinen Vater weitergegeben.

Gute Besserung an Fé!

NH said...

Ich bekomme einfach keine, habe ich beschlossen!

Isa said...

Irene, das hoffe ich auch!

Oh no that's such a shame :((( The first photo breaks my heart! Poor little thing.

My meanpox 4 years ago were the most horrible thing ever, I hate them. I hope she feels better soon. xo

Yes, meanpox is definitely a better name. Poor Fé :(
