    We have Stop and Shop which does deliver but I'm not sure it does same day. We do not have drive through stores and I honestly don't think they exist in the state ( I have seen them on vacation though). My pharmacy has a drive thru so we typically use that even when they aren't sick.


    I'll admit to not bringing my kid out when sick. I feel bad as I hate going anywhere when I am. I will usually ask dh to pick something up or I go out when he comes home. We typically don't run out of food though.

    I understand clear snot can just be allergies but can also be a sinus infection or a cold. I'm more grossed out at the yellow and green because it just looks disgusting, lol. Green and yellow is a high concentration of WBC's which = a virus or infection that is being fought off (correct me if I'm wrong). I'll take my chances with clear. I don't like to take chances with yellow and green.

    So are you of the opinion that people who have kids with clear snot from colds should stay home too until it goes away?

    If the child isn't feeling well then definitely yes. But usually the first day or two I'd say they should stay home. The more rest for them the better. And the less chance my kid has catching it

    I have never had to run out to get food or tampons for the family, but I have gone out to get prescriptions or 'specialty' food for the sick kid. Most of the time DH and I can work it so one person stays home with sicky, but DH isn't always around or available to help. We also dont have any delivery or drive thru stores.

I have it pretty easy too, even without either of those things, but I am well aware that without my support system it wouldnt be so easy.

    I find this a fascinating use of the word elitist, by the way I would simply not call someone who has no resources (like drive through things or grocery delivery or a husband or family or babysitters) and young children who runs the risk of running out of food or medicine......the best planner. Its an oxymoron. If that logic makes me an elitist.......I accept the title happily.

    I'm not a fan of people bringing sick (contagious) kids out to mingle. I just think it is generally a selfish and inconsiderate thing to do. And I get that parents of large families probably run out of sick days very quickly. I can sympathize. I run out of days quickly with my 2 children. But that's one reason why we chose to stop having children. All part of the planning process.....

    I think that kids should stay home when they aren't feeling well too. Would you keep them home if they caught a light cold? My kids have caught colds and only gotten mild cases of them and i don't keep them home at all. I would imagine they are still contagious though.

    Yeah i chose the community i live in for other reasons....it definitely did not come with the perk of having the latest and greatest retail options. Can't have everything i guess.

    See people say this but do you really not bring them anywhere until they are fully better? I almost don't see how its possible.

    Do people really believe that they have a plan in place that prevents their kids from going out in public when they are contagious. I suspect most people do bring their kids out when they are contagious...they just feel better about doing it because the kids don't visually look as bad so its easy to think you are not spreading anything around.
