It didn't take long for my children to bring home their first cold from school. And once someone brings a cold into this house, it quickly makes its rounds to all of us. That little cold germ must have felt like he hit the jackpot when he saw my family of 6. We have already gone through one common cold then quickly moved onto croup - which all four boys ended up getting. Then we had maybe a week of nothing and now it sounds like we are back to croup again.
