Great they're never going to invite me again!

Today somebody invited us to go bike riding in the church parking lot.  Great!  I need some friends and it's somebody I have never managed to get very close to in the 5 years we have known each other.  She's just never been very friendly towards me.

So the kids rode bikes from 10-11 when we decided it was too cold and we all left.  Came home and got ds started on school work.  Read some books to dd.  12 comes and I'm making lunch.  DD comes into the kitchen whinning.  She wouldn't tell me what was wrong and honestly I wouldn't understand her if she had.  I'm in the middle of something so I finish what I'm doing and look at her.  She looks terrible!

She's now laying in the living room watching movies.  She will whine and point to her stomach from time to time.  That was a very sudden case of the stomach flu :(

And I unknowngly exposed their kids.  I feel terrible :(

Maybe they infected you? Don't fret. Kids are germ factories.

If they were riding bikes, they probably weren't in very close contact and being outdoors, rather than an enclosed space will help, too. Do call the parents, though, and give a heads up. It's not your fault - I'm sure if she had been feeling sick before you left you wouldn't have gone!

What's the mom going to do? Get mad at you? If so then she needs to get a grip and you need to decide if this woman is someone you really want to be friends with. That's part of having kids. She can get over that.

Thanks.  I will tell the parent I know (I do not know the other one who was there).

And it makes me nervous because my daughter was at my son's school.  One of the teachers at school went home feeling sick and was found dead the next morning.  The ER had diagnosed her with strep and sent her home.  We still don't know what killed her.

I'm sure she will be fine but you ladies know how it is...
