Every kid has his thing

So now that I am the even wiser mother of two I can say with complete conviction that every child will have some recurring type of illness that the kids around him are not necessarily getting. I have seen kids who throw up or get fevers at the drop of a hat. Alex had an ear infection nearly every month for the first couple years of life.

And now it's Avery's turn. So what ailment do I joyously get to celebrate regularly with this little girl? Diarrhea (cha cha cha). Now you are probably thinking that diarrhea trumps ear infection as far worse. But believe it or not there are some pluses. 1. You never have to go to a doctor, 2. You never have to go to a pharmacy, 3. When you catch the disease, at least there is the benefit of losing some weight.
