    Unfortunately, that is exactly true. The stats for GenY and GenZ on infectious disease have not been good.

    Largely due to the “Lysolization” of the world.

    As expected Elly failed to respond to Anne’s statement of “I miss you, El” from yesterday. Anne gets back at Elly’s indifference by indirectly pointing out that her children stay at home with her and don’t have to go to the disease-ridden playcare/daycare like Elly’s daughter does. After all, as we all know, children who don’t go to playcare/daycare are complete disease-free.

    Or they will get sick later in life.

    Not much space between the houses.

    my grandsons were never sick until mom put them in a Mother’s Day Out program once a week, then they were sick all the time, but on the positive side, by the time they started school they were as germ ridden as all the other kids and were seldom sick.

    That’s so true! The ones who are in daycare when younger.

    And I hope this comic doesn’t start the stupid debate over which is better, daycare or being at home. Both options have their merits and downfalls, and I think it truly depends on the situation.

    I caught all of those childhood diseases at school.
    My advice… if there is a vaccine for it, get them vaccinated.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    No notes for today.

    -
    Just because we didn’t see Ellie responding doesn’t mean she hadn’t from before.
    -
    Actually such infections are good for the children. Low level ones can help their bodies be prepared for much stronger infections later.

    SUSAN NEWMAN: I remember a Margaret Mead lecture in the late ’40s on social change. She pointed out that “baby sitter” a recent term because earlier the term was “Grandma” or “Aunt …”.

    I’m a great- grandmother now. I remember MY grandmother saying “You gotta’ eat a pecka dirt before you die.”
    I believe that. If you don’t build up your immune system, it won’t be strong enough to help you when you need it.
    It’s getting harder to find a dish soap that isn’t
    ‘antibacterial.’ But antibacterial isn’t always a good thing. I’ve read some unsettling things about it.

    How did I know they were going to publish my comment twice? Because they always do.

    Good side-order of guilt, Anne!
