So miserable and overwhelmed.

3 out 4 of my kids are sick. Only two are whiney. The two that are whiney are toddlers; one has a sore throat and cough the other has pink eye in both eyes, ear infection, and cough plus fever. My oldest has an upper respiratory infection and tonsillitis. My youngest is a baby and luckily he's not sick, he's a month old but he is crying a lot to nurse. I have a fever and sore throat. It's summer, we're not suppose to be sick.

Yikes! That sounds miserable.. continue all meds as scheduled; the sooner that you can get rid of these sicknesses, the better. Who's helping you out?

I'd be calling for backup. This is where the "it takes a village" comes from.

I can't tell you how many times over the past 10 years I've called my parents to come over lol help clean, hold a sick child so I could get things done or simply take care of us.

I have heard of a lot of illness this summer. It seems strange to me too. You need a break from the "hospital". Can your husband help?

They don't want to get sick.

He helps during the day but he works nights and that's when the kids are most crabby
