I'm trying to figure if I am a little too freaky or if I am somewhat normal. I have never been a fan of sleepovers to begin with. I am really not into them right now with all the flu going around. If a kid who has recently been sick (& missed over a week of school) is having a big sleepover that weekend (b4 making it back to school) would you send your child? Even if the parent says it was just a cold and he has been fine for a couple days?

I think when it comes to health you should always be careful.

Hmmm....with the child not being back in school, that would make me more cautious I think. I know schools are encouraging kids to stay home with even just the sniffles though, so maybe it really was just a light cold? When in doubt, play it safe though. What did you decide to do?
