Elmo shirts and Ringworm

This is my first post on my brand new blog and I am a little bit nervous. I guess this is supposed to be fun, so here I go throwing caution to the wind! I spent most of today (aside from the time spent setting up this blog) looking for cheap ELMO shirts online. My 20 month old daughter had a hideous tantrum this am because I tried to put her in a shirt that didn't have an ELMO on it. I only have two ELMO shirts and not a lot of time to do laundry, so both were dirty. Needless to say, she went to daycare in a dirty shirt that had an ELMO on it. I am sure a creative parent with more energy than I could have negotiated the situation properly and sent their child out the door in a clean shirt, but I caved in. Today she wins with a ELMO sweatshirt. In a few years, she'll probably win with a biker named 'Snake'. Another weird thing happened today. My husband has this 'thing' on his arm and he decided it had been there long enough to merit a visit to the doctor. The doctor told him it was ringworm. Where the hell do you get ringworm in the suburbs in the wintertime? Is he sleeping with parasite infected farm animals? Do I need to wash the sheets? Should he be sleeping in the garage? I am quite unnerved by the whole thing. I am beginning to think he lives a parallel life designing bioterrorist weapons for the Department of Defense. We'll see if the 'average' ringworm cream can take care of the superfungus he's brought home.
