Sick Child on a Monday & "I Only Let My Kids Watch PBS"
Hope the weekend was good----if your weekends are like mine, the workday is actually FAR more relaxing than the weekend! I have a sick child this Monday AM, some kind of a stomach thing. I tried to crack my 7 year old to see if she was faking it but when she threw up on the dry clean only bedspread, I knew she was not faking it. How do you guys handle doing the work/sick kid thing? I do a lot from my house, which is much easier than doing the juggle with the calling in sick to the office (to take a sick day for your sick kid). Used to do a lot of those type of days. The question is, will the child authorities really come and visit if I allow the child to watch TV from now until, say, 3pm when I pick up the elder monster from her keepers at Catholic school? Is 8 hours a day of Cartoon network (every so often) a BAD thing? As a WT mom, I say a resounding NO! Especially when you have a conference call every Monday at Noon. This leads me to one of my favorite subjects, which are the "pre-moms" (and we all know them) that say they will "only let their children watch PBS". Don't cha love it when these moms finally crack? I know that is kind of mean but the one thing you should never do is make broad blanket statements like that before you have kids. WT moms----I am looking for COPING tips for working at home with a sick child. Or for getting anything done at home when you have a sick kid. Anyone? Happy Monday!
