  • If she were a good friend yes. She must be or she wouldn't have felt right calling you.

  • Yes, I would. I have been sick and had no one to get my son..its rough...why wouldnt I help someone else out and hopefully help keep their kids from getting sick?

  • I would, odds are if the kids are fine there not gonna bring it with them, lots of germX though. I would want someone to help me out.

  • No. I don't ask anyone for help. You're a Mom when you're well ,and when you're sick... The kids need to learn to help out too, not run off and go have fun while Mom suffers. JMO

  • depends on who it is. if its a friend that is always there for me and i knew she would do it if the roles are switched I would take them. I would just make sure they wash their hands good and watch out for symptoms

  • Part of my issue is that she has been using me a TON And I am still really hurt by this...I know if I was sick the favor would NOT be returned!

  • If the kids aren't sick, yes I would and I would NOT expect to get help in return. Sometimes, doing something without thought of repayment is a good thing. You know, "pay it forward".
