Sick of being sick

it started with the stomach flu 2 weeks ago. Grace got it first, then abby, then me (all of this while reid was out of town) and then reid, after he got back. We were healthy for about a day, and now we've got the croup. When does it stop? how did my children get such bad immune systerms? i didn't keep them in a bubble as newborns--i had more of the "expose your kids to all things so they build an immune system" mind set. Did i go wrong with this??? reid and i have never been germ-o-phobes....but i'm starting to think we should be!!! it just seems like such a miserable way to live! i see moms who are germ freaks and think it seems worse worrying about it all the time than actually having sick kids....and then my kids get sick and i have to wonder!!!

needless to say, we have no fun pictures (didn't think to take a picture of the girls cribs when they were covered in that night's dinner) and no fun stories. Just thought i'd post since it's been a while...

by the way, any advice or opinions about this are very welcome!! I'm SICK of being SICK!!!

Sorry you guys are sick! Dan's a germ freak and I'm a build the immune system mom so we meet in the middle. I really think you just get sick sometimes no matter the approach! Hope you're all feeling better soon!

Ick... I hear you - Connor, Alayna and I have been sick almost since we moved here - I hate it! I finally took them to the doctor (even though our insurance hasn't kicked in yet) and got on some antibiotics - poor Connor has been sick more than half his existence it seems like! I'm just glad it isn't the stomach flu! Hang in there...

If you had just been willing to wash your hands and hold that baby at that one intermural basketball game none of this would have happened (use of names has been avoided since I don't know who reads this blog).
