One after another, and another, and another.....

From the experience of being a mother for 3 years and 8 months, I found that my kids get sick in the average of 2-3 times a year or about once in every 4-5 months. Off course, I don't rely much on this estimation but it just something that popped in my mind! I know it is silly but I kind of use it to 'prepare' myself;).

And the sickness comes with a trend. For the past 3 sessions, Bea2 got it first, she then passed it to papa and finally Bea1. Sick kids means sleepless nights (of sponging to keep temperature down, checking temperature etc), and a lot of worries (paranoid is my middle name, by the way;)) to me. Sick husband means more works for me as he needs to take rest. And whenever got sick, Bea1 would act extra babyish, I swear she got that from the father!

From my experience, at anytime of the year when the kids get sick, I would get this comment from the doctors, be it from a specialist or GPs in hospital:

"Ohhh...sekarang ni memang musim, banyak budak sakit"

And I also got these from colleagues,

"Musim la...cuaca panas sangat"

And this from a waiter at Secret Recipe when she saw me struggled to feed medicine to the kids:

"Musim....kejap hujan, kejap panas...saya baru je lepas demam"

Well that made me feel better, but I do wonder if there such thing as "musim" when people tend not to get sick!

Bea2 got a fever during the peak time of the bad haze episode. And off course the doctor said it might be the haze. So, now I can add another "musim" to it!

Just when I feel relieved that Bea2 didn't pass it to anyone, papa complaint he had a fever. Just after he felt a bit better, Bea1 got it pulak! And I suppose the haze is no longer an issue. Just when she showed that her condition was improving, it went back to Bea2. Another trip to the hospital on Monday and both girls are a lot better now.

Anyway, I must be grateful that I escaped from the bugs, except for a mild fever last year. But I can't help it and wonder why. I suppose someone must be healthy to
do all the task of making sure that everybody is back to good health. Plus someone must take care of those extra chores of cleaning pukes etc!

Now that both girls are better, I pray that it is the end of another session!

belacan...wishing speedy recovery for both girls.

5xmom...and people say it will get worse when they grow older:(. Luckily, by then like you said we don't have to worry much about the kids;)
