Nope - but if the neighborhood kid had chicken pox or such, I'd send my kid over to "play" and catch some germs.

When I was 10 we hosted a "pox party." oh, the memories.

Contagious-no, just a cough can linger even after the illness is gone, so we'd go if we were still coughing.
But a sick baby stays home here until he's not contagious anymore. I'd like to think that other parents would be as considerate to stop the spread of infection, kwim?

i wouldn't take them out if I knew they were sick but if its just a cold or sniffles i probly would. But that would depend on what people consider a 'cold'. If you got a fever and coughing hard then thats more than a cold IMO. Sometimes my kids have had a slight cold for weeks. I think its the crazy MO weather we have here...65 degrees one day and 35 the next

Re: If your child was sick would you take them out to playdate??

No not at all and I hate it when other paretns do things like that. My DS has immunological issues so any exposure to sick people or children even when he is healthy is too risky for him.

nope, we have missed many a playdate when mommy needed to talk to other people when the babe was sick.
