Sick All The Time
Can I just say, I feel like Eli is always sick? I guess I thought that since I was staying at home with him, he wouldn't get sick quite as often. But then again, we have lots of people over to the house and we go out and about a lot, we babysit quite a few other kids at random times, and of course, Eli LOVES to suck on the cart handle when I'm grocery shopping, no matter how many times I try to block him, he still seems to manage one or two good sucks each time we go.
I keep wondering if I'm doing something wrong - why is my kid sick all the time? Should I sanitize more? Go out less? What's the solution? Is there a solution? I know that "kids are sick all the time." I've definitely heard that and believe that - but I think Eli's sick with something at least twice a month. And when each of those sicknesses last a week, it starts to feel like he's been sick his whole life. Other mommas, do you feel the same way?
