How could one of my kids catch thrush from another kid?Drool or something, or touching each others hands?

Sharing drinks/food, putting things in their mouth the other kid had in theirs.
Thrush and upper resp are contagious. Ear infections aren't...I'm sure you could get it if you're sharing qtips or ear plugs lol eww.

Upper respiratory infections is contagious as well as thrush. Ear infections are not, but the URI, probably caused the ear infection. Fluid pools up in the ear tube- bacteria multiplies and you have an ear infection.

Ear infections are usually caused by allergies or are a secondary infection. So no they are not contagious however the rest that you listed are.
