How to survive all the sicknesses

by Shelley Heaphy

With a child’s first year in daycare or school there can be a lot of unwanted sickness. When our eldest started school (the same can be said for a child’s first year of daycare) we experienced at least one family member sick each week, throat infections, ear infections, colds, flu, cough and the list goes on! I’m sure I’m not the only one having lived with this so I thought I would share some ways I’ve been surviving with three little ones and sickness!
Having sick kids is the worst. Not only is it awful to see them so sad and so sick and know there’s not much you can do to help them. It’s also hard to play the guessing game. I’m always guessing as to whether or not I should be running them to the emergency room or CLSC or whether I should be trying to see my doctor.
