  • No, it's not fair. But do your best to find a babysitter that you trust and get back in school as soon as possible.

  • I agree with BooHooMommy....Do tell her to kiss your ass!! I totally understand where you are coming from!! I have missed quite a few days of college due to morning sickness (I know, not exactly the same but I still missed school lol). Most professors are pretty understanding as they have kids themselves. So just try to find a babysitter, and ignore your stepmom because she is being a hypocrite and a total bitch. Good Luck....and don't worry about her, at least you are taking care of your child and you are in school trying to make a better life for you and your child.

  • What a guilt trip she put on you...you can't leave your children alone! School is important...as you know or you wouldn't be upset...hope you find a sitter soon!
