Sick Season

I don’t know what it is, but this year, we’ve been sick a LOT. Until this past fall, it seemed like our family didn’t get sick very much. Except for Child #4 and his battles with croup, we had only one or two sick episodes per year.

We have barely been able to get through a single week in the last four months that didn’t have at least one of the kids or parents struggling with a sore throat, vomit, the “fast poops” (what the kids call diarrhea), cough, chickenpox, headaches, ear infections, or hand-foot-and-mouth disease!

I’m ready to Lysol-bomb the house and not let the kids out in mingle with others for a couple of months in an attempt to keep them well for more than a week at a time. Until then, I’m cleaning up vomitus in the mornings, making lots of honey’d tea for the sore throaters, and snuggling the snotty-nosed ear-infection youngest in my arms.
