Foreign soil

I was on the phone to one of the teachers at TLM's new daycare - the one which she was supposed to start at yesterday, but is still too sick to - and moaning that our poor sweetie darling has endured about 3 weeks of this bug or that one. And the teacher said that kids often get sick when they start a new daycare centre; it's something to do with being in contact with new bugs that weren't already doing the rounds at the old one.

And it makes sense, y'know? It's like, when if you move to a foreign country for any length of time, you always avoid the local water to start with because it's got unfamiliar bugs in it.

But that won't stop me from looking for the silver bullet that'll improve her bug-immunity.

I hated it when Z went through that constant illness stage after starting childcare. It just seemed to go on and on. I hope your foreign soil theory doesn't mean we are going to have to go through it again when she starts school:(

Oh yes, on an entirely different topic- could I borrow Season 3 of Outrageous Fortune, please?

I hope I'm wrong, but then - if I am, then why the heck is TLM getting sick so much?

I'll get the boy to take Season 3 in to work for you.
