I have a confession. I usually write these intros the Friday before the post goes up. I like having a cushion in case something happens.
This week, that is more important than ever.
Our kiddo has been doing test to stay for daycare all week. One of her classmate's tested positive for COVID on Tuesday. So far, our kid's tests have been negative. Friday morning, we found out two more classmates' tested positive. We are hoping that her first shot (and our vaccines and boosters ) provide enough protection that we all continue to test negative.
Despite the fact that we feel fine, have no symptoms, and where masks all the time, it seems like there is a specter haunting us. We've been supremely lucky and have avoided infection. This time, it feels like we're due.
Not only has kiddo been exposed several times, but it's my birthday week. I always take time off to pamper myself. Plus, kiddo is due for vaccine shot #2 on Wednesday. She can't get it if she tests positive.
It feels like our luck as run out.
