I have spent two of the last four weekends sick as heck all thanks to my middle school child.
We have noticed a pattern this month. The middle schooler gets sick on a Friday, is sick all weekend and out on Monday. By Wednesday, the little girl has it. I guess because they play and cuddle. Then by Friday I have it. Then I spend the next weekend sick.
My pediatrician has a theory on this. She says that if the oldest child gets something then it’s more likely that the rest of the family will catch it because it’s less likely you’re family has already had it. If the youngest catches something then you probably won’t all come down it because your family could have already had it before they were born.
I think it’s a pretty good theory. What do you guys think? What have you guys experienced? (I’m so tired of being sick! I have too much to do!)
