I love saying this....We rarely ever get sick!! At least the nasty kinds of sick.
We get colds and allergies, but my kids just deal with those. We tough it out. Recently Princess R has had a runny nose, and some congestion. I figured it was just allergies, until I got it, ugh! Talk about a big mommy baby, lol.
For Princess R we just had one pretty rough night. Everytime she laid down she would go into a coughing fit and wake up. She finally was able to sleep though, and slept pretty soundly the rest of the night.
Mostly I stick to tylenol for fevers, and tough out anything else. Unless it's on going for a long time, and then we make a visit to the doctor to see if we need antibiotics or anything else.
My kids are pretty crazy. There are some days when they're sick and I just want to curl up in a blanket with them and watch movies all day. But my kids would rather still run around and play. Despite my longing for some lazy days, I'm really pretty glad that my kids handle sickness well. They've got some tough immune systems!
