Do day care bugs ever end?

by mssinglemama on January 27, 2008

Both of us are sick…again. Since Benjamin started day care last September he’s been sick on and off ever since. This time it’s some nasty, rotten head and stomach cold thing that’s had us miserable for four days now. Each one of these day care bugs is unique. I’ll spare you the details but it’s a little bit freaky. Never, ever in my life have I ever been so sick, so often. It has me considering trading day care for in-home care. But, he’ll be starting montessori this fall so I want him to stay in a school-like environment.

We take vitamins every day. We both drink tons and tons of water. Is there anything else I can do to boost our immunity?  Okay – my head is pounding right now and I have to go to sleep at 7:30pm on a Saturday night. And you know what I’m thinking? Not “oh damn, it’s a Saturday night and I can’t go out.” I’m thinking, “thank god I’m sick on the weekend so I don’t have to call off work.”
