I just wanted to ask this, because although my kids are older, I wasn't prepared to be sick when they were young.
Do you have someone who can help care for you and or your kids? Do you have the meds needed for yourself? Trust me when you AND your kids are sick running to Safeway at two am while your darn husband is at work is not an option.
Plan ahead. Make a cold/flu box and put it in the hall closet. Put tylenol (Adult and the child version you use), your cold med of choice (Adult and child version). Even if you don't ever use it buy childrens and adult Nyquil and put it in there. Trust me. I use homeopathy for the most part, but there are times where you will use it. Now, put that box up and forget about it until you need it.
I pulled my box out last week and it had so much in it. (I had put in secret surprises like ring pops for the kids to suck on...)
Anyway hope this helps someone. *cough*....
