  • I would send the son that is well, and keep the sick son home.

  • I would not go at all. Your other son most likely is contagious and just hasn't showed symptoms yet. I think it's just wrong to expose other kids to a possible illness.

    If it were my child's party I wouldn't want you there.

  • Define sick..Like cold or stomach virus...When did the sick child's symptoms start.

  • Take the one that isn't sick.

  • Even though one doesn't seem sick chances are he still is carrying the bug that the other has.

  • Forgot to add.. I wouldn't send him and wouldn't want someone sending a kid to my party if I was on the other end
