Ugh! It's barely winter yet and already major challenging with multile illnesses.
My Mom just called me YELLING at me that my DS is sick again. She keeps him home from daycare when he is sick with her. She works nights, and this is taxing on her, but she offered to do it because she knows I do not have time to stay home everytime my children are sick. I can lose my job if I call off too much or call off with no PTO time in the bank.
She is yelling at me how messed up it is that she is stuck raising my sick kid while I'm unaffected and at work. :-( WTF? Unaffected?
I have a HUGE meeting today. My first as a point person with a VP! It's BIG. I'm anxious about it as is. And tomorrow and Friday I have meetings all day too where I'll be training people. There is a lot of big stuff going on at work right now.
So now here I am ready to cry... when I should be focusing and preparing for this big meeting?!
So now I'm failing at being a Mom... and failing at my job because I'm a Mom stuck...
I don't know what to do. My Mom is yelling at me to leave work early and how it's not her problem. I get that my kids aren't her problem. But if I lose my job... um... we are going to be even more of a problem to her because then I won't be able to afford anything with NO money coming in!!!
She is the one that volunteered to watch my kids when they were sick and could not go to daycare... I don't know who else to call.
What do you guys do when your kids are sick and if you work at a place that has VERY strict attendance policies?
