We interrupt my regularly scheduled program due to some unforeseen illness...
Funny thing, and I don't mean ha-ha funny, I wrote this post on March 31 but never posted it, and have been home two more times since then with sick kids.
I ended up not going to work today, which was tough. Not because I don't have my priorities straight, but because of what I like to call, dum-dum-dum-dummmm: The Mommy Guilt.
I know mommies who work outside the home can relate. We would like nothing but to stay home with our sick child and care for them knowing work can wait. I was fortunate to have been able to do that for 12 years!
But now, with working away from home, albeit part-time, there is this pull. I don't think dads have the same guilt we do. I won't speak for them, but that's my observation.
So today I am home attending to sick children (yes, her brother is home also...)
Here's to a healthier tomorrow?
