Lilah is onto cold #4 right now, and I have it too. My 5 yr old brought it home from school, and DH is the only one who hasn't had it yet. I got zero sleep last night between Lilah just not sleeping, my 5 y/o waking up with a fever, my almost 3 y/o waking up for whatever reason, and then myself just feeling awful. Lilah has been up since 5am. It's now 9am and she has yet to nap. I've tried twice to put her down, but she just cries and cries and refuses to sleep.
I am absolutely jinxing us right now...but Claire hasn't been sick once. In fact, I was coming down with a cold last week and thought for sure she'd get it (because I'm kissing on her all day long) but she escaped unscathed!
On the 4th cold now. Second this month. He's around a lot of kids. I need to be better about asking if anyone is sick before play dates. Last night was tough but the nights are always harder than days.

One cold. Not a bad one, pretty mild in terms of kids colds. But two pretty yucky bouts with ear infections, the first one being really scary and this latest one not as scary...but her body just either infects quick and strong or the antibiotics aren't as effective on her. Both times she spiked a crazy fever and required a return trip to the doc for stronger treatment. Thankfully this last one stayed in her ear and didn't travel to her body. But my kids are really prone to ear infections. All three had/will have 3-4 before a year old.
Roe has only been sick once. He was diagnosed with RSV at the end of last week. Thankfully he was in good spirits and didn't seem too bothered by it other than a nasty cough. He's on the mends now.
Considering he's now in daycare FT and has been there PT since August, I'm impressed we made it 7 months before being sick.
