Re: When your kids get sick, do you?

Almost never. Only once that I can really remember. Almost 10 years ago we all got norovirus that started in my then 3 year old on a 14 hour drive home from Florida after a Disney vacation. That was horrible.

I get a sinus thing about once or twice a year. It doesn't ever seem to be related to the kids though.

Re: When your kids get sick, do you?

It's funny you asked this. I have NEVER gotten sick from my kids. They both had rsv this winter, which I have renamed really sucky virus, and I never got anything. Not even a sniffle. My older son got a nasty stomach bug and passed it to everyone he came in contact with. Even if it was just for a second. I never got it. My husband, on the other hand gets it all. My mom says it's gods way of keeping us healthy to take care of sick little people .

Only once, with a stomach bug. Otherwise no (hoping I didn't just jinx myself ).

Yeah. Gigi brought home h1n1 and we all got it. After that she brought home a common cold and we got that too. The funny thing is, she is the person who doesn't get sick (not this time obv) so she got over both more quickly than average while we suffered.

We all got H1N1 back in 2009. OMG...I have never be soon sick in my life! All of us were down for the count for almost a week. I missed 5 days of work.

But usually, the kids don't share with each other.

Re: When your kids get sick, do you?

My kids are perfect (because I am a perfect mother), and they have never gotten sick. Ever.



Okay, I lied. Rachel had the most terrible immune system ever when she was little. She caught EVERYTHING. She set a record for herself by going four weeks without illness when she was sixteen (I think) months old. They have all caught things here and there, some of it very weird things and all I remember getting is one stomach bug.

We very rarely get sick but seems like if one does, no one else gets sick.

Re: When your kids get sick, do you?

Ok- this makes me feel a bit better. I have serious anxiety issues when it comes to stomach bugs. :/ ,When I was pregnant with the twins one kid had a stomach bug once a month for 4 months. So one in Dec , Jan , Feb, and the night before we brought the babies home from the NICU in March. However, the last one could have been Dh let our 19 month old eat like 6 jalepenos because she liked them... But I never got it. I'm beginning to realize that maybe I am stressing myself out over nothing since I don't get sick often. Every winter is a nightmare for me emotionally. :/

I'm just trying to find ways to keep my anxiety at bay.
