I just figures . . .
It just figures that after having to take off for a week because of swine flu (while my children were all healthy), one of the kids would get sick this week. Poor George woke up with a fever of 102.2 and he's miserable. You can just see it in his eyes. We're headed to the doctor today. I wonder how long my firm will patiently stand by while my kids get sick. I once had a boss (at another firm) who gave his secretary her yearly review and in the written report he recommended that she be given a raise so that she could buy vitamins for her son because he was always sick. What a jackass (for more than just that). At the time I thought it was pretty funny, but I don't think it is so funny now that I'm the one having to call into my boss and tell him that my kid is sick and I have to stay home. I keep thinking the firm is going to suggest that I reevaluate my children's health. Luckily, we'll have an au pair in August and she will be able to help us out with things like sick days, etc. I hope we can hold out that long.
