The winter season is upon us now and like clockwork that brings on the flu. Since the kids started school we have been introduced to germs like never before and I have found myself having to deal with flu-sick kids a lot more then previous years.
Kids with the flu is not easy. It’s hard to see them feeling so sick, hard to deal with so many sick kids – but it’s not all bad. Sometimes having kids with the flu can bring a calmer space to your house.
Click through for the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to parenting kids with the flu:
The Good 1 of 5It is a LOT of work when all three kids are sick but the good thing about it is when they are all sick - they get along better.
The Bad 2 of 5We go through tissues like crazy fast. My kids are like me and stuff their noses with tissue to keep the boogers at bay. I hate wiping the noses!
The Good 3 of 5The flu brings fevers and with fevers brings tired kids. Not only to they sleep a lot more giving us more quiet time - but they like to cuddle a lot more. Princess R is only ever cuddly when she's sick.
The Bad 4 of 5The fevers bring the sleep - but they also bring the cranky! Can't blame them because they feel terrible - but the tantrums are on a new level when dealing with the flu.
The Ugly 5 of 5Sorry for your eyes there ... that's me. Sick myself and little to no sleep because I am the one taking care of all the other sickies in the house. It's ugly.
