we've been sick at our house....again.

i'm sure you're as sick of hearing that as I am of saying that.

i'm ready to pull my hair out at how we can't seem to catch a break with getting sick.

sometimes i even wonder if i should just take Avery out of school for the winter months...(smile) so she wouldn't bring home every-single-germ that is in that classroom.

This time, it's colds, so there is no antibiotics to make us feel better. Just rest, snuggles, and liquid.

i can't wait till winter is over.


i decided to look back through my archives and see how many times my family has been sick. it's quite ridiculous if you ask me...

Oct 20 - COLDS, all of us
Nov 1 - COLDS, all of us,
Nov 14 - Liv - double ear infection and sinus infection
Dec 5 - Avery - strep and UTI
Jan 13 - Avery- strep
Jan 19 - Me - strep and UTI
Jan 22 - Liv - treated with antibiotics
Feb 7 - Liv - high fever, more antibiotics
Feb 17 - COLDS, all of us

(**daddy usually got sick each of these times too, but I didn't keep track....oops)

It's no fun being cooped with all those germs. Spring is coming soon and we'll be talking about sundresses and green grass before we know it. :)

One thing that I do when we come home from an indoor play place is to make the kids strip down to their underwear/diaper as soon as they walk in the door. They don't wear anything from those germ concentrated places in the house until it's been washed.

Maybe you could have Avery change clothes when she gets home???? My friend who works in a daycare does that every day so her own kids don't get exposed. I have no idea if it does any good, but I figure it can't hurt.

Hope everyone is feeling better soon!

Ahhh. sorry to hear you are sick again.
I'm not sure, but I have heard that having a window cracked a bit in the winter is a good thing. We have terrible insulation/windows, so we have a constant draft here...hee hee.
Take care all.

I hope you gals feel better soon. Your house sounds eerily similar to ours. Rebecca and Jaquelyn just keep sending the germs back and forth to each other. Luckily, it's just the two of them usually, although this time around Dan caught a bit of a cold too.

We're sick right now too. The boys have colds, and Emma has a double ear infection. Spring can't come fast enough!
Hope you're all feeling better soon!

We feel like we have been sick at some point for 2 weeks. We are ready to have a healthy house. It has been crazy. Hope you all feel better.
