Quick! What would you do?

What would you do if you have a toddler (2) puking and you need to take your preschooler to school? There's no one to watch one or drive one.

Would you keep your preschooler home or risk the little one puking in the car?

 

***Keeping them home. Thanks for replying.****

Take a bucket or pan for the littleone to puke in. I have done it many times.  Good luck.

one of the most usefull skills for a toddler to learn is to puke in a bucket.

Unless you think it's highly contagious I  would take the older one to preschool-and bring a bucket.

When my kids become wild and unruly, I use a nice, safe playpen. When they're finished, I climb out.

take a bucket, or something for the sick one to puke in...I  would send the non-sick one to school.

This is what we did last year when three of our four kids got throwing up sick.  We had to get them to the doctor because it had been 2 days of keeping nothing down.

They all had their own bowls in their laps and my husband took off of work to come with me and help.

If you think the little one is contagious, then keep them both home.

I hope he gets to feeling better soon!

If it were regular school (Kindergarten and up) I would say to take them.  Since it's only pre-school and they won't miss much, I say to keep them home.  I know when I'm puking, the last thing I want to do is go for a ride.

Keep him home. No sence making it worse for the little one than it has to be.
