Does it seem like your kids get sick more than the average kid? I've noticed that my kids seem to get everything they are exposed to, and other people have commented on how often they are sick. I am a nurse, and I wash my hands almost obsessively. I have my kids wash hands often. Of course they do the normal kid stuff - putting fingers in noses and mouths, then touching stuff.
