I am writing today from a place of experience! We have been trudging through these steps of surviving being sick in a large family for three weeks now (and we still have
four children make that two children who haven’t caught the bug yet!!!)
You know the drill. When one person catches a virus, usually at least half of the family ends up affected. Unless it’s the dreaded stomach bug. In our house, if one gets a stomach bug, we all eventually get it!
As with just about anything large family-related, early preparation and a good mindset are the two things that matter most. Let’s go more in depth into exactly what I keep on hand, a few new tips I’ve picked up during our current epidemic, and what to do when it feels like everything is just falling apart (if you stay in a sickness cycle long enough, this will happen!)
