IF: GERMS


As a parent, I am too familiar with this scenario. My son's school had the first h1h1 case this week and I kept him home most of the week as a precaution. The teachers told the kids that if they sneezed/coughed on their own hands to wash hands right away, and if they were next to another kid and they sneezed/coughed on the other kid's hands, both kids had to wash their hands. So far it seems to be working...

Hope you all have a great week!!!

OHHH YUCK yuck yuck!!!! Not the illo, but his power sneeze. Oh wow, I can almost feel that spray. Ick! Great motion.

I saw a super slow-mo video of people sneezing, and it was NOT pretty. Oh my goodness, all the little bitty germs coming out in fine mist. Wash your hands, people. I sure hope your school does not see anymore H1N1. Pretty scary for any parent.

I love your recycle piece below, too! I like the top one with the stronger colors. And your new blog background is awesome. You've been busy! :D

Heehee. this is great, such a fab sense of motion. (I can totally relate - little kids sure don't hold back when they sneeze in your face! Happens a lot at work) ^__^ Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog too.
