  • Think of it this way, a little cold or something that downs them for a day, just strengthens their immune systems against the big stuff. :-)

  • I get less done when they are sick because both of my boys are snugglers. When they are sick they both want to be right on top of me!

  • My kids are ADHD and I could always tell when they were getting sick, it was the only time they slowed down. LOL

  • I think it's tougher when they are sick because they need to be constantly attended to whether it be for beverages, medicine, temperature taking, tissues, the right foods like making soup, or heating up canned soup, or finding pillows to prop up their heads sothey can breathe easier.And I'm sure I'm forgeting something here.

  • Unfortunately, that isn't true for all of us. Any illness in this house means extra vigilance on my part because it can quickly turn into an extended stay at the local children's hospital.

  • I wouldn't care myself except I would have 3 other kids wanting my attention so no break for me. LOL
