Do you always catch what your kids have??

I feel so bad for my kids when they are sick. No matter how careful I am, it seems like I always catch what they have. Ugh. Going into work in an hour and just came down with a fever...grrrr

  • yep...i guess it happens. i dont get it as bad as them though but i catch something the same time they do or right after.

    my mom says since my grandma raised 7 kids, she's immune to all of it.

  • Poor you. I just can't function with a fever. If my kids get the flu. Yep I get it worse and longer than them.

  • We call DD "typhoid Mary" because she brings everything home and we all get sick. She barely gets it, but the boys, DH and I all get it. DH and I sometimes get it the worst. Ah, another joy of parenting.

  • Yep! When the kids were little most of the time I would catch it and be sick too. That is one of the hard things about being mom, you don't have time to be sick, you have to suck it up and keep going on as you still have to take care of the kids, home and work.
    I hope you feel better soon!

  • No, I rarely get sick. But my son is only 18 months old. I'll have to wait until he goes to school to really see.

  • So far, no. And thankfully, my Son doesn't catch what I have, either. *knocks on wood*

  • Nope... I work in a HS and used to work in a Pharmacy and a Hospital... so I think I have built up a pretty good immunity to stuff... thankfully!!
