Swine flu parties!

OK~ I know Moms can be desperate. But, I am now learning that some Moms are attending swine flu parties with their children. The theory being that their children will get the swine flu from an infected person at one of these so called get togethers. As a Mom who tries to be informed of current news events, it is to my knowledge that this flu is new and scientists really don't understand it. Therefore, I think these Moms are crazy!

I have heard of Moms taking their kids to chicken pox parties, and am thinking this type of party falls under the same category. When my oldest son was almost a year old he had the chicken pox and my youngest son (four years later) got the chicken pox when he was 11 months old. Not sure if it's still this way, but they both could have been vaccinated for the chicken pox at the age of 1! Well, we didn't make it to that. Not sure where my kids picked the good old chicken pox up from, but this Mom did not take them to a party of any sorts.............Well, after all it's all in a Mom's day, right?

  2. I can't believe these idiotic mothers! I canceled my trip to Mexico next week b/c my pediatrician advised me not to take my daughter. I truly don't think any of these mothers' pediatricians recommended them to do this, if so, they need to find new pediatricians.
