Quoting Mama to J ♥:" How often do you call off work or leave early with a sick child? I havent worked for over 2 years, however ... [snip!] ... not care either way because its your kid....? I have no clue because this is my first child and my first job with a child..lol."
LO hasn't been sick very much either, i can count about 5x that she has been sick and she is almost 3, and the days that she has been sick this year is 3, (just an upset stomach and puking) which all seem to be when i have off of work. Otherwise i have only called in once, because of LO being sick. I am our only income, so if i want the bills paid i have to count on someone else to care for LO when she is ill.
