    I'm at a loss to be honest and I'm starting not to care. I think dad is just being a bit of spoiled brat and needs a bit of a reality check. If he has no issue with his DD sharing illness, that's his prerogative. I chose to parent differently, apparently that's hard to accept for them.

    I don't blame you for being at a loss.

    Just playing devils advocate. Perhaps they know the real reason you didn't take DS? Rather than what you told them (about having a bad night). Perhaps that's why they are upset?

    I don't know, it seems so odd.

    Look, perhaps they could have seen through the excuse but surely they could understand in that case why we would make up such a story? It wasn't just because we didn't feel like going! Either way, I think it's all a bit high school and I don't know what further I can do.

    At the end of the day, in just glad I went with my gut instinct not to unnecessary expose my DS to HFM.

    Personally I wouldn't have taken my DS either.

    I hope they come around for your friendships sake.

    I think if they're going to punish you for wanting to protect your your DS from being exposed to a nasty illness, then they're not very good friends! Sorry they're being jerks :/

    I'd be inclined to point out that another little boy who attended got sick and ask them if they expect you to put your own child at risk for an event that their daughter won't even remember. If they really think that their own egos are more important than a child's health I wouldn't consider them friends anyway.

    Really? I've never had it and neither has anyone else in my family.

    Many many people have had it, a lot of the time they don't even know they have because it can be so mild.

    My son picked up a mild form at a play centre and no one else in my family caught it from him which means they are most likely already had it and are immune. In saying that it can be very severe too. Either way you wouldn't purposely risk it.

    You probably had it very mild as a child without knowing it... It's a very very common virus, my DS got it last year & neither DH or I picked it up, despite caring for him through it... So probably we were immune.

    My niece had a bath with DS in the early stages (before we knew) she even drank the bath water & she didn't contract it, again she probably had a very mild case before & was immune, her parents couldn't remember her having it.

    I didn't realise it was that common, I honestly don't know anyone who's had it or who's kids have had it. I must be sheltered :P but yes I agree I wouldn't purposely risk my kids getting sick.
