Pride goeth before a fall.
I've known some kids, and some families, to have a really bad YEAR
Where someone is always sick, and it goes around, and then there's another virus, and it never seems to end
until it does.

Hmmm... it's not like DD has never been sick, but her "being sick," is a sore throat, or a cough, or a runny nose. She had a few fevers as a baby, and I think she's had one fever since then... maybe the odd spew... but it's never constant or ongoing and it's never major. I think any issues last about 1 spew, or a couple of days for a cold or something, but she's pretty much normal during those stages, just sniffling or coughing.
It's remained the same since starting daycare and school... there was no increase.
It's interesting... I think I've got a decent immune system because when everyone around me is sick, I usually don't get there myself... of course I've bene sick a few times, but not like some people... so maybe it's a hereditary thing?

First year of daycare they picked up mild colds and gastro, but are pretty much immune to most things now.

All my three are like this. They all started day care from 12 months and other than the odd runny noses they have been pretty good. Things go around but they seem to not catch them.
The two eldest had a case of gastro at the same time 2 years ago.
We have been to the hospital 3 times but all were self inflicted accidents.
One thing the middle child was bringing home was worms from day care but hasn't had them since finishing before Christmas.

(touch wood before i say this) Well DD did get sick more when she started regular daycare- she went from never ever sick to sick once or twice a year... And most of those times I can attribute to something other than daycare or school anyway. I've always had a brilliant immune system, so I guess DD is the same..

Omg!! I really can't believe that so many kids sail through daycare and kindy without loads of illnesses. My DD was at FDC and was sick with everything for the better part of 18 months- 2 years! Her immune system is maturing now, she's at school and seems to pick up the normal bugs etc but nothing major!! My DS was sick all the freaking time for his first 12 months (I think close to 20 times all up!) he wasn't at daycare but his big sister was! He then started daycare at 12 months and has been fine since then

DD usually comes home with a runny nose. The worst thing from FDC she's caught was hand, foot & mouth. If she gets really sick ie: tonsilitus, it's from her cousins who are chronic sufferers.
A couple of months back she caught a tummy bug from my mother that put her out of action for well over 7 days.
