Update to We are down for the count

All 3 kids have strep throat. M and AE also have hand, foot and mouth disease. I am DYING from swimmers ear. Life is great…

Update:  They all have lice now!!!  WTH?? They had it about 3-4 weeks ago and we washed and sprayed everything 100 times!!  Now again??? I can only think maybe the babysitters??  Nothing else makes sense!



  1. oh hellfire! That is rotten rotten rotten! I suppose it is too much to hope that the virus’s have tired them out a bit? that they are quietly resting in order to allow their little bodies to recover?
    Wow, what a batch of bad luck!

  2. is there anything I can do?

  3. I’ve always used small amounts of rubbing alcohol to cure the old water in the ear thing. Anyway hang in there!


  4. No wonder I haven’t heard from you. So sorry to hear about this. Sending you a big hug. Anything I can do to help? Hate those little buggers! (Lice, not kids…) 🙂

  5. We use Adam’s Flea and Tick Shampoo. It’s for dogs, but it’s pretty gentle so you can use it without too much worry. I have a friend that uses it when one of her 6 kids get lice to prevent the others from getting it. We also use it when our children have it. My mom swears by mayonnaise (yuck!).

    So sorry to hear about your troubles. You poor thing!
