DH & I usually take turns taking the day off. But last week DD2 had HFM and he was really sick himself. Barely walk up the stairs exhausted with 2 infections. And when DD1 got HFM he got it bad then got shingles right after. I didn't want him around her if possible! But it sucked having to take 3 days off work consecutively.
For a normal cold/fever we also call on my inlaws and BIL if need be.
