Urgent help with decision needed!

Been invited to a fab soft play place with loads of really good friends (all home educated so in school time) this afternoon - we'd need to leave soonish to go. All the DDs want to go but DD1 (6) has got a nasty cold and a bit of a tummy ache (which she always gets with colds - glands - alternatively she coudl just be really, really hungry having not eaten since last night!). She was up a lot in the night and has just slept for 2.5h.

She's got no temperature, just a cough and sniffly nose. And she doesn't feel sick (is very sensitive to nauseous feelings so I trust her).

So, would you take them? Take a DS and books for DD1 to snuggle up with if she doesn't feel like playing? Not go and have us all get cabin fever as the 3 younger DDs are all well (4, 2 and 1)?

No one's got a car big enough for their DCs plus three of mine. DD1 wants to go, incidentally...(<whispers> as do I!)

It is a cold.

I would have sent mine to school with it, so imo home ed and soft play outing counts the same.

As mrsBadger said, go and snuggle dd1, you'll only be thinking what if... otherwise. Enjoy!

It's not the 'cold' bit that bothers me, more the fact she's clearly very under-the-weather IYSWIM. THe others have got mild colds but not ill with them IYSWIM. But I'm glad you're all sayign to go.

My gut is telling me to take them - I'm fairly sure she'll perk up now she's had some sleep and once she gets distracted by playing. I'll just expect her to tire more easily and make sure I remember her inhaler.
