You know the saying “The bigger they are, the harder they fall”? I believe that is true of blended families during cold and flu season.
I don’t know about your house, but it seemed like our house was hit pretty hard this winter (if you can even call that winter).
We have 4 children at our house, 3 of them school age. When Ethan and Eleanor are at their mom’s house, they spend time with their twin brothers who are in daycare. Rebecca has a brother who goes to daycare at her dad’s too.
That makes 7 kids sharing germs and spreading whatever sickness they have.
This year, we had a round of chicken pox that hit 5 of those kids. 4 of them had a horrible flu, and then there were the little colds here and there… oh, and lice x 2.
Yup, we share everything.
