We are going to Disneyland, in the middle of a flu epidemic. Technically it hasn't hit California yet, and my children have had their flu shots...but I haven't. So guess who is going to spray the hotel room with Lysol and bathe in hand sanitizer?
In the past we have taken the baby and it's worked out fine. He's really a pleasant happy fellow. We've also had a great time just taking the older two. It's much less work, but it's also missing a little bit of cuteness. I would like to take baby just to get a great family photo, but then I remember that right now Shel has the world's most awful looking rash. It's not contagious, but I'm sure we'll give the other Disneyland parents a thrill when we show up with a spotted, red child. Maybe I should make him wear a shirt that says, "I'm not contagious!", because that wouldn't make him need therapy later.
Then 4 a.m. rolls around and he wakes up and I think, "NO. WAY."
Nothing is worse than a tired, sleep deprived family at Disneyland. Unless it's a tired, sleep deprived family with the flu at Disneyland.
So what do you think? Should I take the little guy with me or send him off to Grandma's?
