The House of Crud

9 Feb

For the past two months, my daughter and I have been playing a really fun and neat game of pass the cold.  I was fortunate enough to have it first, then it was her turn, and like a ping-pong ball, right back to me.

I’ve bragged in the past I RARELY get sick and how my little concoction of vitamin C, zinc, and echinacea keeps the crud away.  Well, not this year!  I took those stupid pills and I still managed to get sick…twice.

It’s hard to dodge illnesses when your child is in a bubble of contaminants at school all day.  They also have the amazing ability to forget to wash hands.  How many times have I had to say, “Wash your hands and….um, hey….you need to use soap!”.

At least we’ve dodged the flu, so maybe our flu shots have worked?  All I know is, I don’t want another ping-pong match of crud.  The game itself is fun, but not when you’re running for tissues and going through cough drops like water!
