I know it's inevitable, but ever since my daughter started going to daycare five months ago, the whole family has been suffering with colds permanently. As soon as we get better from one, she brings another one home and we all start again!
Recently she had a double ear infection and bronchiolitis, got better and was healthy for a week and now has an ear infection again. :( Meanwhile I got sinusitis from the same latest bug.
I'm sure that loads of other parents have been in the same boat, as this is part and parcel of what happens when youngsters start socialising. I'm interested to know, though, how long this phase tends to last?
I am expecting her to bring home bugs as long as she's in any kind of schooling. It's just this really intensive phase of _always_ having a cold that I'm curious about!
