Am I overreacting?
Am I crazy to keep my son out of preschool this week? Today was a teacher workday so it's only Tues-Thurs. My reason? His H1N1 vaccine won't kick in for another week (had 1st shot last Monday). I was ok until my friend told me Friday there was a notice on her child's door saying that someone in their classroom has it (same preschool). Mini#2's asthma has kicked in and he's gotten a cold so we've been medicating for a week anyway. He's in the "high risk" category as it is. I sent an email to the teacher to confirm number of kids and it's actually been two- which really isn't bad for this size preschool. So am I crazy? I advised his teacher that he may not be there because I'm still debating on what to do, but tried not to sound too fanatical just more cautious in my wording. These are times when I think "when the heck did I get old enough to have to make these important decisions?" I even thought about taking him Thursday for their fall festival (costumes/party), but that may be worse! He would be exposed to all those kids- not just his class. As my mom said (who is adding fuel to my smoldering worry fire), "They'll be plenty more fall festivals for him!" As in, don't risk it by going Thursday. So what are your thoughts on this? Let me have it.
