BTW. I am not an advocate of the coke theory, but we have tried ginger ale, pedialite, gatorade, juice, all with refusals.
ETA: The whole die, artificial ingredients thing is one reason I can see having to go to the store. We try to not keep those things around. Even soda crackers are full of crap so I dont buy them. Same with popsicles etc. However, when my kids are puking a lot and I am worried about what they can hold down, I will give them anything that will stay in their tummy, so I am often running to the store for something new to try. So far I havent had to take the sick kid with me, but I coudl understand needing too.

Melissa, I just have to say....that idea worked. I emailed one of the women who runs the yoga studio, she always says she knows sitters because she & her co-owner work such nutty hours, so she found me someone and now we're covered for tomorrow. I wouldn't have thought of it, so thank you.

We use coconut water. Kids love it. so do we. Super healthy. Easy to keep on hand all the time. And Bonita, if you read my posts, I'm clearly, over and over, ad nauseum (ha!) talking about SICK kids.
Laurie that's so awesome!!

David Letterman is retiring. Such great memories of watching him over the past thirty-two years!
Last minute baby sitters would be lovely, I don't even have a baby sitter locally that I could line up weeks before. I was supposed to have an event tonight which my son could have come with me, but I would have been working and he would have been bored. My Mum was able to come down, but if she hadn't been able to he would have had to come with me, or else I would have left the organisers(which includes me) one short because I couldn't go. Like I said before I have few friends locally and I have lived here for nearly 3.5 years, and the two people I know best I wouldn't ask to baby sit my son as they have young children of their own and it wouldn't be fair to their children or DS because he is terrible at going to bed.
I don't think your elitist, just lucky to have so many options.
How much are they in Australia? I know I can buy the large bag of the cheapy ones for 2.00 here (they are about 24 or so in the bag). a box of Edy's fruit bars are about 3.00 for 6 which I usually buy for non sickness times.

Cheapest is the home brand usually which is around $8 for a bag of 40 (wow I just looked them up, they have jumped in price heaps to what I though, when I was pregnant with DS they were about $5-$6). If I want to go for the fruit juice ones it's about $7 for a bag of 24 of those.
The ones on a stick that are ready to go are just over $3 for a pack of 24 in the home brand
