  • Both of my kids have only been sick 1x....that is the norm for them. Once a year and it is usually a minor case of the sniffles

  • funny you ask. we have taken Sunday swim lessons since school began and by late November, not one Sunday has gone by where I've said, "Well, they are kinda sick, maybe we should skip this one." They've had some slight cough or runny nose thing all year. Literally, all year. As for fevers, not one yet.

  • None. She hasn't been sick during her entire 21 months of life.

  • =(

    my daughter has been sick at least 5 times this year. And it's only March. It seems she's been getting sick every other week since she had pneumonia in the beginning of January. She's sick right now. I'm starting to wonder if this is something more serious. I can't understand how you can get one virus after another after another. =(

  • Just once. We all caught a cold and passed it around. He didn't have the lingering cough, though, thank goodness!

  • My kids haven't been sick yet. (Knock on wood). But, they are getting pretty miserable because of allergies.
