I love living with my niece and nephews. I love their energy. I love that there are new experiences everyday in their lives. I love the sound of them laughing hysterically at something that, to adult eyes, seems not worthy of notice.
But…I can’t stand the constant transfer, exchange, share of germs. Just when it seems like everyone is healthy…BAM…a virus. I thought that this time I would escape unscathed. Until I woke up dizzy this morning.
So, to all those who work with kids on a steady basis, my hat off to you. Thank you for being on the frontier of our next generation. And for being willing to go into the germzone with boldness. You are my new heroes.
