Exactly what is a boogie?


Okay...Something is going around my classroom, and now I have it! I scrub the desks, wipe the sink, and sanitize my hands to the point that I am now the lotion bottle's best friend! Exactly how do you prevent yourself from catching what is going around? Can you over sanitize?


On Monday, this little boy in my class said "Mrs. B, can I hold your hand?" as we walk down the hall to lunch. Usually, I will hold his hand, because he walks much better. But on Monday...I said, "Have you picked your nose today? (which he does constantly) and he says "uh, huh", "Nope, you can hold Kiley's hand." She said "NO! I don't want his snot on me!"
SO...Now that it is finally cooling down, I guess it's Boogie time. (I thought germs didn't like the cold)

is it POSSIBLE to avoid all the blech that goes around a school? I always think that this year my immunity will have increased enough - only to find out that no, I'm just likely to catch a more virulent strain of last years' bug!

good call on the hand holding - no boogies!

Oy.vey! I'm still awaiting my first grader to bring home some sickness (finding some wood to knock on!). I'm SO not looking foward to this crappy weather and sickness! Hope you feel better soon!

*thanks for stopping by!

knock on wood. Every one in our family has had the stomach flu except me. I hate knowing that it's coming!

I'm just two below you on SITS comments today . . . at least the kid was honest about his picking habits! That should count for something right? :-)
