Tis the season of the cold and flu *cough* *sniff*
This year the sick bugs seem to be rampant! Maybe it’s just us, but having a Kindergartener, we all seem to catch whatever there is to catch…often.
There are so many methods of treating said germs. We usually stick to the basic rest and plenty of fluids and hot drinks/soups method. Along with the tried and true “cover your mouth if you sneeze or cough!” method.
What has worked for us (as far as containing the germs to just one person, or two) is a type of quarantine for the sicky. That person rests in their own bed and everything they come in contact with gets washed down.
A family of four can easily get stuck in the house for a month if a person a week gets sick. UGH.
Desperate times, people.
What do you do for colds and flus? What works for your family?
