I'm part of a mom group/play group with my son and it seems like every week someone keeps their child home because of a cough or cold.... I don't (unless DS is feeling miserable or symptoms are really REALLY bad). I just pack some Kleenex and head out the door to share our germs. I'm generally pretty relaxed about germ sharing (unless their is puking involved....no thank you!), but every time someone sends an email canceling because of a runny nose I feel a little guilty. Also, 4 other moms in the group are pregnant too, so I suppose I have to worry about infecting them too.
Opinions? Am I a terrible person for occasionally exposing DS's little friends to his snot? Or is it ok to venture out in public with mild sickness symptoms? Now that you're pregnant are you avoiding all small children with colds/coughs?
