The last week has been exhausting. Monday Kaitlyn came home from school with a really high fever. She was home sick for 2 days, finally felt well enough to go back to school yesterday. Aidan woke up last night with a fever. This virus gives the kids REALLY high fevers, Kaitlyn got to 104.5 at one point. Now Aidan has one that keeps creeping back up, and then he started vomiting (yes I know it is gross but it is a fact of life). So, I call in to work seeing if there is any way at all for me to get off some today. Nope, none at all. No PTO no Same day PTO.
They pride themselves on being a family friendly company, but a mom can't get 2 lousy hours off to take care of her son until his father gets home. A coworker of mine just had a baby, she took time off to have the baby and now the baby needs surgery. She is stuck trying to trade the hours she is supposed to work, they aren't helping that poor mom out at all.
Ok, I'm off to take care of my sick baby. I just needed to vent that out.
