What do you do when your chidren are sick? DS is sick, I work part time and go to school full-time, this is the 3rd or 4th time he's been sick in the past two months. Last month his daycare had a flood and was closed for 3 days too. I have NO ONE to help with childcare, DS's father owns his own business but is not willing to take time off. DP has a crazy job and cannot take time off either. I'm really stressed over this, I want to be able to be with my son when he's sick but if I had a real job I'd be fired by now. How do you other working/student mamas handle it?
