Does your household catch every cold and virus that the kids bring home from school?

I usually get some of what gets brought home. My husband rarely does. The kids - depends on what it is. We have 2 that are strep carriers and 2 that always get strep for example.

  • I always tend to get sick, my husband rarely does. My kids get sick sometimes, but they always share with me.

  • Not too bad, I think we are usually one of the last to get it, it eventually catches up to us and then we all share it.

  • not really, my oldest who is 7 in 2nd grade gets almost everything, but earaches constantly, the rest of us hardly catch anything, healthy immune systems maybe?

    Answer by HTMommy at 9:50 PM on Sep. 13, 2010

  • Well, if it gets brought home by anyone, then I will catch it. I have a crappy immune system, apparently. My daughter brought a cold home from the drop-in daycare center and I caught it, my mom caught it and my week old baby caught it. My husband didn't though.

  • My hubby hardly ever gets sick, he's got a superman immune system. But the girls and I freely pass our germs around, maybe we only get the bugs that love estrogen. LOL
