Avoid Licking Strange People
The days are getting shorter and colder. It’s that time of year again.
Daycare pestilence season.
Those of you with little ones staying in the illness incubator will know what I’m talking about. Expect a fun new contagion every few weeks. If you’re lucky, it’ll be a simple case of the sniffles. If not, good luck with the fun case of hand, foot and mouth disease.
And, of course, you’ll be able to share in the misery too! Usually increased by a factor of ten.
As I type this, my nose is stuffed up (and you don’t want to know what’s coming out of it when I blow it), I’ve got a slight fever, and every muscle in my body feels like they’ve been put through a wringer. Last night, I felt so drained that I went to sleep immediately after putting our toddler to bed.
The kid, on the other hand, had a little bit of a runny nose earlier this week, but seems okay now.
