As the seasons change, it’s that time of year when all manner of bugs are doing the rounds and as anyone with young children will know, having to tend to a sick sprog can be a real ordeal.
Throw in an infected sibling (or two) and you’ll find yourself on Florence Nightingale duty before you know it.
When my two-year-old son came home from his kindergarten germ factory with with raging rivers of fluid leaking from both nostrils, myself and my wife knew we were in for a few sleepless nights. Before long the coughing started, then the crying and the refusal to eat the tiniest mouthful of food or a sip of water. Then came the twice-nightly screaming wakeups, the steadfast refusal to settle and the days off work to look after our little snot-monster.
Just as he began to beat the bug, his six-year-old sister decided she was fed up of her little bro getting all the attention and succumbed to the sickness herself. At least she’s able to blow her own nose.
It’s all you can do to stop getting infected yourself. Oh, for a cure for the common cold.
