Do you take your sick kids shopping with you?

My kids woke up with a cold today, I'm guessing the same one I've been dealing with since last Saturday.  We were planning on going to Lowes to get some flowers to plant in the garden that we spent hours getting ready for the flowers, and I think that them being out in the fresh air will be good for them.  But I'm not sure if we should still go out...

Do you take your sick kids to stores with you?

With colds yes. If I have to yes. My dd had a bladder infection. Went from the doc to the pharmacy and she puked all over the floor in front of the counter.

No. But I prefer not to take them shopping with me, period, regardless of health. LOL

I say go ahead, unless you think he may faint or puke. A cold is no big deal.

Yes unless they are puking or it's a serious illness. And it's usually a quick run in and out.

That's what I was thinking, especially since its still in the sore throat, runny nose phase.  Anyway, we already know what flowers we're getting, so we're going to be in and out.

If it's just a cold, yes.

Omg. Do you know the meaning of contagious? Do you know what causes colds?

Nope, I tie them up and hide them in the closet. Why should my life stop just because they have a cold??

Whenever my child was sick and wanted to go, I took her. I figure her getting out wouldn't hurt.
