love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
Do you all keep your child home every time they have a cold?
Here’s the dilemma. LA has a cold and though it’s getting better, she’s still kinda cranky. Tomorrow’s the first day back to school after winter break and I always feel like it’s suspicious to be absent the first day back.
On one hand I feel bad for sending a possibly cranky kid to daycare. On the other hand, I’ve already missed 4 days of work and counting. (We don’t have an official number of days off, but I know 10 would be the upper limit based on previous teaching jobs and I’ve already missed more than other team members 😦 ). I also know I have more testing coming up that’s going to require me to take half-days off. I also am not sure if it warrants staying home because it’s a basic cold.
There’s no way that A can stay home because she’s in the same boat and it’s my turn.
Not sure what to do 😦
I fucking HATE having to make a decision between my child and my work. UGH!!!!
