My husband and I are also doing our best to keep from getting sick because everyone knows the house doesn't stop running just because Mommy or Daddy doesn't feel well. Nothing's foolproof, of course, (other than evacuating the house!) but we'll take all of the precautions we can so we don't end up passing germs back and forth.

Hopefully, your children won't get the flu but if they do, you'll have everything you need to help keep them comfortable and get them back on their feet faster.
