    We had a bad wallop for a week or so on September but it’s actually been not bad since.

    Anyone else's kids sick for an extended period? did an Instagram poll, 98% said yes (80 votes lol)

    damn near took my 6 months old to the hospital last night she was sounding so rough. Sick baby is shitty, our first one was a covid baby so she didn't even get sick in her first year.

    After 8 days my 2 year old still has a nasty cough and tiny bit of runny nose. wifes been sick the whole time too, hasn't bothered me much more than a super mild cold yet though.
    Shit is fucked up right now.

    We are in perpetual sickness and have been for months now (like i posted a few weeks back). We have healthy spurts of like 2-3 days tops then someone is sick again. And our kid has had a cough for like 2+ months.

    I'm going to see my doctors as I've had a stomach flu thing twice in a month. Like fucking kill me now.

    Also I just got over covid (mild), which the kiddo then got (fever gone in a couple days) and now a week later the wife has covid (while I'm too sick to even move out of bed).

    Is this from nobody spreading shit during covid or WTF?

    edit: makes me feel a little better that we're not the only ones... its exhausting. And at times feel's like this can't be normal.

    A week of being sick does not qualify as a bad wallop lol. Step up your game son.
    @cycosis seems to be leading at the moment, and somehow doing it with only one kid in the house. Tell that little mf'er to stop licking doorknobs.

    I consider a bad wallop to be a degree of severity rather than a measure of time.

    If you have a runny nose for 3 weeks I’m unsympathetic compared to being literally bedridden for a few days.

    Our 2 y/o has been sick for around 2 months straight. Respiratory to start, now constant runny nose and cough, had the flu last weekend and barfed a bunch.

    3 month old somehow has dodged most of the 2 y/o's shenanigans. I just have a constant runny nose now

    Since Oct 1, we've had at least one kid home sick at least once a week, often several days a week and my oldest missed a full week... Nearly made it last week and the youngest stayed home on Friday.

    My wife and I had a bad couple of weeks, but aside from the odd cough or runny nose, we've been 'better' for 2 weeks now.

    It seems unrelenting and it's everywhere... My little guy only had 6 kids at school for his first ever class photo a few weeks ago.

    A few years ago, one of the years before covid, we kept track and our one kid was only in attendance for 13 full weeks through the entire school year. Missed probably as many days as they attended total. That was a rough year.
    This year, kid is a lot older, but that same kid has missed a little over 3 weeks of school already, and we've sent them to school with obvious symptoms a few times so they don't fall too far behind.

    Rest of the family, it's been roughly typical, but that one kid, it's been rough.

    Damn. Is this normal? I dont recall being home sick that much as a kid.

    WTF do people do who can't remote work from home?

    don't take my kids as "normal" for anything. No idea what a normal kid looks like, I don't have any.

    Young kids (0-7 years) get sick. Some more than others, whether from environment (daycare) or their own internal constitution. And the most basic "normal cold" can really knock a small kind on their ass. Fever, vomiting etc for a cold would be crazy for most adults, but common for kids.

    Anyway, I think this year a lot of kids are basically getting the illnesses they missed in the last 3 years. maybe.

    To be fair, my kid never skips a beat.

    It’s mom and dad who get their asses kicked.

    My kids seem to switch off every week with who is too sick to go to daycare and who is going to be sick over the weekend. Last week was my 4.5 year old staying home thursday and friday but my 2.5 year old has had a constant night time cough for a few months now. It kind of sucks taking them to daycare and you see kids with a stream of green boogers dripping down their face and hacking up a lung but yet they are still there. Its seems like the director is sending out weekly emails with the "health checklist" and a reminder that if your kid is sick they cannot come to school. I bet her morning is just calling parents back to pick their petri dish up. I know when we caught covid back in June at least 6 other families caught it at the same time.

    Last week I was down with some sort of strep/throat infection followed by a stomach bug for a day. Its been a rough fall for us so far.

    Same boat for me. 1YO and 3YO always sick with something. I catch everything they bring home and it kicks my butt too. I got stupid hand foot and mouth and that was bad. Then it got to remind me for another 4 months while my fingernails grew out the damaged parts.

    If my couch can pull out why couldn't you? 'Don't have kids' is the new 'Don't be poor'.

    Kidding aside, the wife said there has been a noticeable increase in kids coming into emerg. Cold & flu season + COVID + RSV (new to me) = shitty time of year.

    I remember when ERs had signs plastered all over them to go the fuck home if you had cold symptoms.

    This seriously struck a nerve.
    I said this exact same thing to my wife three days ago.
    To the point where I want to go full Karen and write a WTFBBQ email to the director.

    Yeah it's unfortunate. That email will also make zero difference. Just manage your expectations haha.

    My son in kindergarten hasn’t had a full 5 day week yet since he started in September. We just finished a 3-4 week bout of sickness where he missed about 12 days in a row because he was so bad (3yo daughter along with my wife and I were also sick for a couple of days too). This might be his first full week finally.

    Thank god wife is a SAHM…I have no idea how people manage with daycares and 2 working parents.
